Kyuss / Queens of the Stone Age is an EP by the American rock bands Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, released in December 1997 on Man's Ruin Records. It features some of the final studio recordings by Kyuss while debuting guitarist Josh Homme's next project, Queens of the Stone Age.

Five of the EP's six tracks had previously been released: Kyuss' cover version of Black Sabbath's "Into the Void" had been released as a single by Man's Ruin the prior year, with "Fatso Forgotso" as its B-side, while "Fatso Forgotso Phase II" had been released under the title "Flip the Phase" in 1995 on the single for "One Inch Man" off their album ...And the Circus Leaves Town. The Queens of the Stone Age tracks "If Only Everything" and "Born to Hula" had been released by Man's Ruin in 1996 on the Gamma Ray 7", when Homme was calling his new project Gamma Ray. He received a cease and desist order because the name Gamma Ray was already in use by a German band; this EP, released a year later, marked the first use of the "Queens of the Stone Age" moniker.

"If Only Everything" was re-recorded under the shortened title "If Only" for Queens of the Stone Age's debut album in 1998, while "Born to Hula" was re-recorded and appeared as a B-side on "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" single from the band's 2000 album Rated R. "Fatso Forgotso" and "Fatso Forgotso Phase II (Flip the Phase)" were later re-released on Muchas Gracias: The Best of Kyuss (2000), while "Spiders and Vinegaroons" was included on the 2011 re-release of the first Queens of the Stone Age album.
