Song of the Day: Queens of the Stone Age - Hanging Tree

Alright, day 4 of Mark Lanegan week, and I'm tired and a bit hungover. So what better way to wake up than with Queens of the Stone Age? I've sung the praises of the band before, posting "Auto Pilot" off of Rated R. But Songs for the Deaf kicks it up a notch, due mostly to Dave Grohl obliterating his drum kit on this record and the two Lanegan cameos. My favorite of those is definitely "Hanging Tree," which features one of the heavier riffs I've heard from Queens.

Bonus! Here's video of an "acoustic" version, featuring an especially gravelly sounding Lanegan, looking pissed off, as usual.
