Fresh from their recent¬†mind-blowing Splendour In The Grass set and accompanying Aussie tour, Queens Of The Stone Age made a stop over at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival. While there, frontman Josh Homme decided to try his hand at covering Gorillaz’s ‘Clint Eastwood’ during their set.

While playing through the legendary¬†Rated R track ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’ on Friday night, Josh Homme took advantage of the song’s breakdown to deliver a short tribute to Gorillaz, who were playing on another stage at the festival at the same time, taking time just to belt out a quick verse before delving back into the crushing deluge that is ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’.

Queens Of The Stone Age’s seventh record,¬†Villains, is due out on August 25th. No word yet if there’s a secret Gorillaz cover at the end of the record, but you can check out the live footage below.
