Queens Of The Stone Age rocker Josh Homme has accused Metallica of copying music he recorded with his former band Kyuss.

Homme makes his attack in an interview with American rock magazine Decibel.

He says,"The amount of s**t that they borrowed from us is frustrating."

The singer adds he almost got his own back when asked to comment on Metallica for a documentary, while under the influence of ecstasy.

Homme says, "I was trying hard not to say something negative. I said that meeting them was like meeting George W Bush. My eyes must have been spinning."
