Notes
  • The Australian sampler came with bits of six tracks and was redeemable for 5 Australian dollars: "Hand this cd over the counter of the retailer below and receive $5 off the price of the new album R." Rated R was listed as the Triple J album of the week on the front cover of the sampler. How much of each track was used is as follows:
    Feel Good Hit of the Summer - 1 min 12 sec
  • The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret - 2 min 35 sec
    Auto Pilot - 2 min 45 sec
    Better Living Through Chemistry - 3 min 12 sec
    Monsters in the Parasol - 1 min 59 sec
    In the Fade - 1 min 55 sec
  • Both the UK and US promos came under the title "Queens of the Stone Age II." The name of the album was changed to Rated R shortly after that for the June release.
  • The "X Rated" limited edition German 12" is in a red Gatefold sleeve with the same design as the blue CD cover, except for the X where the R should be. It contains Ode to Clarissa as a bonus track. Inside, explicit pornographic pictures line a stretched drawing of a face and two screen shots from a porn. A sheet with all of the credits and pictures from the CD sleeve comes with the record. This edition is unnumbered. Also on the back, just below the white stripe and in very small letters are the words, "Don't make me beg, just fuck me." Here's the track breakdown:
