Queens of the Stone Age "Smooth Sailing" (live on 'Austin City Limits')
Queens of the Stone of the Stone Age made a big impression this year on stages and through stereos via their impressive comeback set …Like Clockwork. A recent taping for Austin City Limits showcased those cuts too, and you can now check out that concert's grooving live take on "Smooth Sailing."

The scary but sexy funk-rock number had Josh Homme and co. slinking around the stage, offering up a series of falsetto cries, squealing guitar bends and a couple granite hard riffs. It's a simple, but effective run-through on one of ...Like Clockwork's louder moments.

Queens of the Stone Age's full Austin City Limits performance will be broadcast on PBS January 4.
