Vocalist Josh Homme describes the move as like a "get-out-of-jail-free card"...
Queens Of The Stone Age have donated a track from their album ‘RATED R’ to soundtrack a film highlighting the dangers of drunk-driving.
The group, currently at work on their new album ‘Songs For The Deaf’, have given the track ‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ to the educational campaign, organised by the San Diego County Office of Education and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department.
The film is likely to be shown in local schools’ drivers education programs, according to Rolling Stone in the US.
Speaking about the decision to donate the song, vocalist Josh Homme joked: “I feel like doing donuts in San Diego County and dropping my name when the cops come. Dude, it’s a get-out-of-jail-free card. I just want to be in league with the cops.
“I sort of feel like the roads should have those inflatable arm-floaties [the kind kids use in a pool] along either shoulder. And that all cars should have ’em too so you could just bounce off everyone.”
A UK spokesperson for the group is currently unavailable for comment.
