On March 7th, 2002, Queens of the Stone Age played an intimate show at the 500-capacity L.A. club The Troubadour. In six months, they'd release what would prove to be their breakthrough album, August's Songs for the Deaf, and that night they played a number of songs from the LP, including future lead single "No One Knows," for the first times ever. (See the full setlist here.)
Also for the first time ever, they were joined onstage by a new drummer named Dave Grohl, who had put his main band, the Foo Fighters, on hold to team with Josh Homme and Co.
Fortunately for most of us who were unable to make it past the bouncers at the door, the show was filmed, with a few standout performances appearing on the bonus DVD to Songs for the Deaf. Those included the live debut of "No One Knows," with a topless Grohl absolutely annihilating his kit.
To some fans, this is the definitive version of the song; certainly, it's a harder-hitting, more rockin' version, which sits well with us at Revolver HQ, of course. Watch above.
