Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme has a big problem with what he and his band was asked to do at Jay Z's music festival.

The rock band played at Jay Z's Made In America festival in Philadelphia earlier this month. Homme told CBC Radio 2, "That guy's a kook, you know. He has his security frisking the bands on the way in. I just told him 'If you open up my bag, then we're not playing, so I guess it's up to you now to decide whether I'm playing or not.'

"The idea they frisked all my guys, means you’re in some different place, no-one has ever done that."

Later, Jay Z gave the band a ...

Where Do Bands Get Their Names?
