Beer-Opener Flash Drive Holds Rock Band’s Latest Album

Queens of the Stone Age have released their new musical offering on a flash drive that includes additional content.

In a bid to offer something more imaginative to their fans, Queens Of The Stone Age (QOTSA) have decided to offer their latest album on a USB flash drive that comes with a host of extra content – as well as functionality.

Apart from the album itself, the USB comes loaded with lyric sheets, music videos, and album artwork. Things that make it a slightly more appealing proposition than simply streaming it.

The band are also keen to point out the fact that once you’ve transferred the album and other contents over to your computer, you’ve just come into possession of an 8-GB flash drive, something that can prove quite useful in day-to-day life. If that’s not enough, there’s even a bottle opener built into the back of the USB drive.


So, whether you want to use the device for improved productivity, or the complete opposite, take heart in the fact both options are covered.

QOTSA had musician and comedian Fred Armisen star in a compelling sales pitch for the limited edition drive.

The album is also available in all the usual places such as Amazon and iTunes, but the group are well known for their eccentricity, a trait they clearly want to inject into their album offerings instead of just being like everyone else.


The album package is on sale now for $29.99, but seeing as it’s limited edition you might want to check it out sooner rather than later.
