After so much rumor and speculation that everyone began to assume it was a big joke, the Queens of the Stone Age song "The Fun Machine Took a S___ and Died" has finally materialized in the form of an exclusive, autographed 7" vinyl record. It was distributed at a concert last night to people who had ticket vouchers from previously scheduled concerts in England that got cancelled -- once because of Josh Homme's unexpected throat disease and once because of the London bombings. (Of course, it's quite possible that not everyone who got the vinyl deserved it, but that's just the way it goes.) It's a six-minute demo-quality recording that has been described as "a heavy marching song". No word yet on whether or not it will be released in any other form, but since Josh Homme liked it enough to delay the album for it (even though it didn't make it onto the album anyway), one assumes it'll pop up somewhere, as a more professional recording. Meanwhile, since the band also performed the song at this particular concert and it is likely the concert that was recorded for the upcoming live DVD, it's possible that the song will soon be heard by people other than the lucky few and the bootleggers.
