    VVVVV's was a little out-of-date, so I'll start a new one:

    Recommend and/or fellate the hell out of stoner rock bands, songs, albums and culture. Anything from Mastodon to Fu Manchu to The Obsessed. Hell, even stoner-esque doom metal and stuff like Cathedral or Sunn0))).

    I recently fell back in love with Kyuss.

    Stoner/doom is pretty much the only metal I listen to right now, I've grown tired of most black/death/brown/poop/whatever, but Big n' Nasty Riffs still get me going.

    Great thread!

    Kyuss
    Fu Manchu
    Orange Goblin
    Nebula
    Sally
    Nebula

    The little Monster Magnet I was exposed too seemed stoner rock lite. It seemed more spacy (with a tinge of mainstream) than down 'n dirty like the ones we've already mentioned. But I'm gonna plead ignorance. Recommend me some old Monster Magnet that I should check out that would change my mind.

    Speaking of crossovers, High on Fire fucking dominate. One of my favorite new bands. Cathedral in the doom/groove crossover...another brilliant band.

    I was lucky enough to see Slo Burn at Ozzfest '97 on the side stage. Best band on that stage all day.

    yeah I'll second/third

    Fun Manchu (Boogie Van!!!!)
    Kyuss (Just plain rule)

    I'll add
    Rollerball (Australian band, possibly the laziest on the planet) but they did some wicked stuff, like a cover of 'Evie Let Your Hair Hang Down'

    I don't think Phil will be releasing anything anytime soon... :erk:

    The first Down is incredible, the second was disappointing in comparison, but not a terrible album.

    I actually liked the second one a little better, because the vocals weren't all "Cat Scratch Fever" if you know what I mean.

    However, Down fucking own.

    High on Fire own.

    Orange Goblin own.

    Spiritual Beggars own.

    500 Ft. of Pipe own.

    Nebula own.

    Check out Electric Wizard and Fireball Ministry.

    Hell, www.stonerrock.com

    ^^^That jukebox is nuts. The low quality enhances the music because it adds to the dusty desert feel of the music.

    I think we might be waiting longer inf Phil is a man of his work. NOLA was an awesome album. A Bustle in Your Headgerow was very good, but defanitly not as good as NOLA.

    500 Ft. Of Pipe don't have a bassist. True story.

    They're pretty damn heavy for having no bass player.

    The vocalist plays low-end keyboards. Haha.

    Dope Deal is one of the best stoner rock albums I've ever heard.
