Queens of the Stoneage frontman Josh Homme is so badass, he 'died' and came back to life in 2010 (after surgery complications). Mortality ain't got nothin' on this rocker! Homme never has difficulty speaking his mind either. Who could forget this memorable dis he gave Jay-Z during a radio interview with CBC Radio 2's Strombo Show last fall:

"[Jay-Z]... gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it. And I thought: that's not a gift; that is a marketing tool. So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall. And you shouldn't frisk my guys, you should fuck off."

Ouch. Here are more badass gems from the mouth of Homme.

I read those in his voice. Queens of the Stone Age are one of the only good things about music today. They are genuine and they don't sacrifice who they are to make more money like a lot of entertainers do. They have artistic integrity, which is something some of these phony performers don't even have in their dictionaries. Keep being awesome guys.
