Queens of the Stone Age’s new video is a nightmarish distillation of male rage

Queens of the Stone Age's latest video is a brilliant showcase for 3-D – if by “3-D” we're talking about Drugs, Drinking and Death.

The band's new clip for “…Like Clockwork” single “Smooth Sailing” sees frontman Josh Homme engaging in a substance-fueled night of debauchery through the streets of some unnamed city with a bunch of Japanese businessmen, and…well, let's just say things get ugly pretty quick. Among the host of visual delights you can expect in the stunning Hiro Murai-directed video include drunken antics in a mall, drunken karaoke and drunken beating a guy's head in with a golf club and then burying him in a ravine. You know, just your average night out.
