the video description says they are the "originators of the Stoner/Desert Rock genre".

First of all, that's not a genre. It might be a style (even that is a stretch... desert style?), but it's not a genre.

If this music is desert style... then I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Soundgarden originated desert style because this just sounds like a bad Soundgarden cover band.

Vista Chino are formerly Sons of Kyuss, not formerly Kyuss. They never had Homme, so they were never Kyuss, and they had to change their name because they were basically commanded by court to admit that they were not and were never Kyuss.

If you're going to be that pedantic about their classification, "stoner/desert rock" is a distinct subgenre when you consider that large collection of bands who share the same qualities while existing in completely seperate Venn Diagrams of Soundgarden, who were a grunge band from Seattle.

Unless this was your way of commenting on the rampant "subgenre-of-a-subgenre" labeling that goes on, but this is why people get so bent out of shape when people overgeneralize and (as an example) lump All Time Low and The Ramones in the same category of "Punk". Both bands with a penchant for fast, simple songs about girls via power chords, are they not?

the latter, And I am not one of those people who gets bent out of shape about broad classifications. The broader the better in my opinion. It keeps the listener from forming expectations about what an artist should/shouldn't be, and more open to different sounds in music.
