Green Machine - Kyuss

Green Machine

Blues for the Red Sun
Stoner Rock desert rock stoner hard rock rock


"Green Machine" is a song by Kyuss from their 1992 album Blues for the Red Sun. Written by drummer Brant Bjork, it was released as a single that same year. The back of the CD case contains the following review: The skyscraping amp inside the CD slick of Blues for the Red Sun - the second master-work by Palm Desert, USA natives, Kyuss - just looks loud. It's an image that recalls another era. A time when the battle wasn't to get into the pit but to put your head into one of the bass bins of the PA system. It used to be called fun though it played hell with the pressure in your ears. Maybe the gents in Kyuss used to get up to similar tricks and have set out reproducing those same sounds that pushed them to the brink of passing out. They certainly look like something straight out of a worn promo shot of crazed sixties decibel barbarians, Blue Cheer and sound that almost unbelieveably at times like a street punk version of the original Black Sabbath. Now let's face it - who doesn't need that. Yep, Kyuss are out to move your head and bowel and make the earth beneath your feet shudder. Mighty noble ideas if you ask me. Murray Engleheart


For 2011 touring line-up, see Kyuss Lives!. Kyuss (pronounced /ˈkaɪ.əs/ KYE-əs) is the corner stone of what is known as stoner rock or desert rock. Although deriving influence from 60s-70s hard rock, Kyuss churned out a unique sound. This was primarily because guitarist Josh Homme often tuned to a low C, a major third below standard pitch, but also singer John Garcia's paint stripping vocals. The band was originally formed in 1989 in Palm Desert, California under the name "Sons of Kyuss". Show more ...

Green Machine - Kyuss

I've got a wall inside my head,
It's got to set your soul free
I've got a wheel 'nside my head,
A wheel of understandin'

I'ma loadin', loadin'
My war machine
I'm contributing to the system,
The break down scheme

I'ma shuttin' down, I'm shuttin' down
Your greed for green
I am here to
Gun it down, I gotta do

I see pretty flowers at my feet,
A cool breeze, clean air, hospitality
A pretty please, a pretty please, pretty please,
Get the hell away from me

I'ma loadin', loadin'
My war machine
I'm contributing to the system,
The break down scheme

I'ma shuttin' down, I'm shuttin' down
Your greed for green
I am here to
Gun it down, I gotta do

Eheh, shht

I've got a wall inside my head,
It's got to set your soul free
I've got a wheel 'nside my head,
The wheel of understanding

I'ma loadin', loadin'
My war machine
I'm contributing to the system,
The break down scheme

I'ma shuttin' down, I'm shuttin' down
Your greed for green, baby
I am here to
Gun it down, I gotta do

Ehh! Eh...
