  • In my opinion, it is the better of the two
  • In all seriousness though, I think if it hadn't been for the mediocre and shoddy production value, this song wouldn't have been as good
  • The power and emotional raw feel that emaciates from Green Machine was definitely unique for it's time

      “Green Machine” is the second song on Kyuss album “Blues For The Red Sun”. This critically acclaimed album was released 1992 and single-handedly defined the “stoner rock” and “desert rock” genres. The song itself was written by the bands drummer Brant Bjork and appears as one of two singles on the album. In my opinion, it is the better of the two.

      “Green Machine” is a very fast, raw and powerful song. Josh Homme’s guitar riff is deep, heavy, catchy and repetitive. This signature tone that Homme came up with can all be thanks to downtuning his guitar by 2 whole


      steps and plugging his guitar into a bass amp. The albums poor production value gives the song that edgy and gritty feel to it, it’s raw and emotional. This is further backed up by John Garcias hoarse and signiture vocals. I’m not the biggest fan of Garcia’s voice but in this particular case it really ties the song together. That thick, raspy and at time disgusting voice as if he just got done smoking a carton of cigarrettes, is perfectly suited for such a song. There is a particular instance where Homme’s pulls off a little guitar solo and while ...

      • he is doing that, Nick Oliveri kind of shadows Homme on bass. It’s pretty sick and in this instance you kind of get a little taste of what this duo could really accomplish, not only for this song but the long run in general. You know what I mean right? You know, a little band called Queens of the Stone Age? Yeah them. Anyways, the drumming is tight and does it’s job of keeping the overall rhythm and flow of “Green Machine” but nothing in general really stands out from a percussion perspective.

        “Green Machine” is such a groovin and catchy

        little song. I especially find it suitible for blasting while you’re speeding down the highway. In all seriousness though, I think if it hadn’t been for the mediocre and shoddy production value, this song wouldn’t have been as good. The power and emotional raw feel that emaciates from “Green Machine” was definitely unique for it’s time. Even now, it has really held up well as compared to some of Kyuss later works ahem* “…And The Circus Leaves Town”. In the long run, “Green Machine” is definitely a song to check out, especially if you’re a Queens of the Stone Age fan.
