Queens of the Stone Age's new video for "My God Is the Sun" continues the band's barrage of creepy animated clips in advance of their new album, ...Like Clockwork.

Whereas the previous clips for "I Appear Missing," "If I Had a Tail" and "Keep Your Eyes Peeled" offered only portions of the album cuts, "My God Is the Sun" gives us the whole shebang, in all its gory glory.

The video wraps up the demented storyline that started with "Missing," bringing back familiar characters from that hellscape, then unites them with a giant, winged skull with a gold tooth and some serious Ghostbusters powers.

Like other entries in the series, the video for "My God Is the Sun" was animated by Liam Brazier and based on characters created by the UK artist Boneface, who also designed the album's cover. ...Like Clockwork is out June 4th on Matador.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
