I don't know if it's just the people that I talk to, but it seems that most people don't really listen to stoner rock; no it's not rock about smoking weed. I'm not really good at describing genre's to people, so I'll just list some bands that are stoner rock if you're interested in checking them out.

Clutch - They don't call themselves stoner rock, but I consider them to be. Kind of stoner rock with some blues mixed in.

Corrosion of Conformity - Awesome band, although I only enjoy anything that Pepper does the vocals on [Deliverance and on. Also on Vote With a Bullet.

sHeavy - Not a very well known band, but it's a good group even though the vocalists voice can be a little irritating.

Kyuss - Josh Homme from QOTSA played guitar for them.

The Sword - Okay, it's more stoner metal, but it's still wicked.

Those are just my main ones, but anyways discuss.

Edit: I just started listening to a song by Five Horse Johnson; it's a pretty solid jam and it seems like a good band.

The doors, beatles, Tool are some good stoner musics oh and incubus.

Fu Manchu are a very good stoner rock band, you should definitely check them out.

Monster Magnet's a pretty decent band. Though, they definitely sold out.

If you've never listened to Alabama Thunderpussy, you might want to give them a listen.

Corrosion of Conformity is killer. I think I've heard some Clutch, but that's all I've heard of Stoner Rock. I know of Superjoint Ritual and High on Fire, but that's more of Stoner Metal...Any other good bands besides what's listed?

Offtopic- What would you classify Butthole Surfers as? If you haven't heard them, here's 2 samples:

Not too keen on Butthole Surfers. Know this from GH2. Song would fit into the stoner rock pretty well.

I've heard the beginning of a few of their songs, and they seemed pretty good, but I've never really tried listening to them.

Also, I'd check out Nebula; I've only heard a couple to tracks, but they rock pretty hard.

I almost forgot, Down are a great stoner metal band.

Kyuss is one of my Top 5 all time bands. As much as I love QotSA, I just totally miss Kyuss. Josh just can't quite fill the rocker sound that Garcia's vocals have. Obviously Nick Olivari's after band Mondo Generator is rooted in Stoner rock as well as John Garcia's Slo Burn too.
Fu Manchu fits the bill as well.
Monster Magnet. Great live by the way.
Corrosion of Conformity. were also great when I saw then about 10-12 years ago.
I'd put Black Sabbath in the Stoner Rock catagory as well. Though they are definitly a fit to metal as well.
And Clutch is just plain wicked.

Pink Floyd is good. I don't smoke but I still like them a lot.
