In response to Josh Homme’s CBeebies bedtime story, here’s Hacker T Dog reading Queens Of The Stone Age lyrics

"I close my eyes, I just can't sleep"

In response to Josh Homme‘s recent CBeebies bedtime story, now the kids’ channel have returned the favour by having their own Hacker T Dog reading out the lyrics to a Queens Of The Stone Age song.

Last week, Homme delighted children and rock-loving parents when he took over the segment to read Julia Donaldson’s short story ‘Zog’, the tale “about a heroic and good dragon that is learning to be the best he can be”.

Returning the favour, popular kid’s character Hacker T Dog has delivered a dramatic reading of QOTSA’s track ‘Long Slow Goodbye’ from acclaimed 2005 album ‘Lullabies to Paralyze‘. Check it out below.

Homme follows in the footsteps of Tom Hardy and Avengers star Chris Evans by taking part in the BBC kids show, which sees a famous face reading out a popular children’s bedtime story. Dolly Parton has also been confirmed to deliver one soon.

QOTSA also made headlines earlier this week when they performed a cover of Foo Fighters’ ‘Everlong‘ with their own ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’ at Cal Jam 2017.

Queens Of The Stone Age’s new album ‘Villains‘ it out now.
