Music: You need a little more Flaming Lips + Madonna in your life

  • The Lips joined up with fellow band Stardeath and White Dwarfs, which features Wayne Coyne’s nephew, to do a killer cover of Madonna’s “Borderline.” Sweet. (And the video’s cool too.)

Music: Amusing catfight #1: The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne vs. Arcade Fire

  • I don’t know why people put up with it. I wouldn’t put up with it. I don’t care if it’s Arcade Fire or Brian Eno. If either of them walked into a room and treated people like (*&% I’d be like, ‘%*%& you, get outta here.’
  • Wayne Coyne • In a Rolling Stone interview where he ripped everyone’s favorite indie band a new one. Coyne has a history of this – he famously ripped Beck a while back.

Music: “Do You Realize” how awesome Oklahoma’s state song is?

  • The Flaming Lips are rockin’ their home state. Wayne Coyne must be proud. Today, the state legislature passed a resolution naming the state’s official rock song, and the one they picked is frickin’ killer. “Do You Realize??,” off the Oklahoma band’s “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots,” beat out songs from the last 50 years (including the All-American Rejects, thank God) to win one for the indie kids. source
