Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme ripped into both Imagine Dragons and the Grammy Awards during a gig in Texas – click below to watch footage.

LA band Imagine Dragons, who released their debut album 'Night Visions' in 2012, took home the gong for Best Rock Performance with their single 'Radioactive' at last month's Grammy Awards (January 26). They beat Queens Of The Stone Age in the category, who were nominated for their track 'My God Is The Sun'.

Homme addressed Imagine Dragons' victory while performing in Houston, Texas earlier this week (February 9). He introduced their track 'I Appear Missing' by joking "This next song is by Imagine Dragons" and, when the crowd heckled, he added: "Fuck everything. Fuck the man. Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammys."

Earlier this week, concert footage of Homme pushing a stage invader off the stage and calling him a "fucking douchebag" also surfaced online. After pushing the man back into the crowd, Homme said to audience cheers: "Don't do that... I don't know what you're trying to do. You're lucky I didn't fuck you up, bro. I'm here to play for you, not jerk you off, you fucking douchebag."

Homme recently said that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's '...Like Clockwork' later this year. Asked by Rolling Stone if they'd be recording another album soon, Homme commented: "Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."

Meanwhile, Homme is set to make a guest appearance on American sketch comedy Portlandia when it returns for its fourth season this year. The show, which is written and performed by Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag singer Carrie Brownstein and ex-Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen, takes a satirical look at the hipster scene in Portland, Oregon and the various characters that inhabit the area. Season four of Portlandia will premiere in the US on February 27.
