Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme recently sat down with Faster Louder for a video Q&A session with fans, and he discussed everything from vanilla ice cream being the “king sh*t of f*ck mountain of ice cream flavors” to how he’s only owned one car, a ’67 Camaro, since he was 14-years old. The fan questions ranged from goofy to serious, obviously, but those that got the most elaborate and meaningful responses out of Homme involved his lawsuit with his former Kyuss bandmates over the use of the old name and his infamous “F*ck the Grammys” remark.

Homme made his thoughts about the Grammy “finale debacle” and losing to Imagine Dragons in the Best Hard Rock Performance category known on stage at a show in Houston, and of course we all went bonkers over it, because GRRRRRRR FIGHT THE SYSTEM! But in answering a fan’s question as to whether or not he’d ever play the Grammys again, he seems like he’s had a mild change of heart.

“I’d play anywhere. I mean, I don’t care about the drama. I got misunderstood for something I said when I was reacting to someone in the audience recently… not to mention I was really drunk. But the truth is that I’m a musician. I play my music. I don’t really worry about the rest, and I don’t think it’s necessary to worry or sweat the rest of this stuff. Just go and play your music. I play my music. I don’t like to be disrespected. But nobody likes that. If they got their shit together, maybe. I’m in a band, I go play music wherever I’m supposed to go play. You can’t sweat this other stuff. It’s not that big of a deal.”
