Background: Released in 2000, R, Rated R, X, Rated X, or Feel Good Hit of the Summer was the second album by the Queens of the Stone Age.

The album reached #54 on the UK album chart but did not chart in the U.S. gave Rated R a 5 star review:

The second Queens of the Stone Age album, Rated R (as in the movie rating; its title was changed from II at the last minute before release), makes its stoner rock affiliations clear right from the opening track. The lyrics of “Feel Good Hit of the Summer” consist entirely of a one-line list of recreational drugs that Josh Homme rattles off over and over, a gag that gets pretty tiresome by the end of the song (and certainly doesn’t need the reprise that follows “In the Fade”). Fortunately, the rest of the material is up to snuff. R is mellower, trippier, and more arranged than its predecessor, making its point through warm fuzz-guitar tones, ethereal harmonies, vibraphones, horns, and even the odd steel drum. That might alienate listeners who have come to expect a crunchier guitar attack, but even though it’s not really aggro, R is still far heavier than the garage punk and grunge that inform much of the record.
