"Go with the Flow" is a song by Queens of the Stone Age from the album Songs for the Deaf, released as a single in 2003. At the 46th Annual Grammy Awards, the song was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance.[1]

Music video

The music video for the song was filmed in England by Shynola.[2] At the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, it won Best Special Effects and was nominated for Best Art Direction and Breakthrough Video.[3] The video--rendered in black, white, and red--features the band performing at the back of a Chevrolet pickup truck driving through a desert highway. The video also has sexual themes such as a metaphor of two cars colliding with each other, symbolizing intercourse, and an image of a bident (like the one on the cover of the album) showing some erotic attributes.[4]
