Although at first Josh Homme and his people had denied it was his fault, Homme has pleaded no contest to charges relating to his smashing a bottle over the head of the Dwarves' Blag Dahlia.

Dahlia slams Queens in the track "Massacre" off the band's latest disc, The Dwarves Must Die. "This one goes out to Queens of the Trust Fund/You slept on my floor/And now I'm sleeping through your motherfucking records," Dahlia warbles.
