ABC/Randy HolmesQueens of the Stone Age have shared their support for Pride Month and the LGBTQ community and, in doing so, revealed the intention behind the band's name.

"Remember, it's still pride month!" the "No One Knows" rockers write in an Instagram post. "Do something wonderful for someone today! Something you'll be proud of!!"

The band then adds, "Remember, the name QUEENS of the Stone Age was designed to weed certain people out."
