Eagles of Death Metal (EofDM) is an American garage rock band formed by Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite the name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. Hughes in an interview with a Polish rock magazine Teraz Rock told the story of the band's name. He said that his friend, Lou, was trying to make Josh Homme like death metal. When he played Vader, Homme called it "Eagles of death metal." Later, Josh Homme inspired him to write music that he thought would be the Eagles crossed with death metal, and their debut album was the result. In a 2003 interview Homme described the sound of the band as a combination of "bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals." Jesse Hughes is known and somewhat loved by fans for his ever enthusiastic and charismatic interaction with audiences at live performances, making seeing the band like a whole show and not just a gig.[1][2] Image File history File links EaglesOfDeathMetal. ...

Since then, they have performed with Joan Jett and were recently supposed to go on tour with Guns N' Roses. In their first concert with Guns N' Roses, a concert in Cleveland, Ohio on November 24, 2006, the band was not well received by the crowd at all. When Axl Rose came out to perform, he asked the crowd if they enjoyed "the Pigeons of Shit Metal," and announced that the show would be their last with Guns N' Roses.

At first, the audience refused to welcome us to the jungle, but by the time we took our final bow, it had become paradise city. Although Axl tried to November rain on our parade, no sweet child o' mine can derail the EODM night train. We say live and let die.[3]

They took further stabs at Guns N' Roses, claiming that there was aggravation between Axl Rose and Tommy Stinson (the bassist of GN'R). Later they also claimed that Rose had invited the band back for the rest of their scheduled dates as support act.[4] The band also received full payment for the entire tour despite playing only a single show with the band.
