If you haven’t voted for The Flaming Lips’ Do You Realize? as the state rock song for Oklahoma then GO DO IT NOW SENOR! ¡RAPIDO! ¡RAPIDO! ¡VAMONOS!
Do you realize that if you don’t go vote for the Lips then the All American Rejects might win!? – and America already looks like a giant douche, so the AARgh might be the drop of “juice” that breaks the douche.
Oh hell! Elvis Presley is in the running!? Wayne Coyne is WAY cooler than Elvis. And Elvis isn’t even from Oklahoma!?!?! He was born in Mississippi and lived and died in Tennessee! What the hell is this sham! God damned bureaucrat’s wives in Oklahoma probably love Elvis or something… The Flaming Lips are actually from Oklahoma!
I was going to post some inspirational photographs from a Flaming Lips show, but they are missing in action! I’ll update them to the post if found… but the gist of it was that the heavens opened , Wayne Coyne descended from the sky, the evil chupacabras tried to eat the world, but Wayne Coyne sang them a beautiful lullaby, thus rendering them sleepy and harmless.
And the competition in this election:
I was going to photoshop All American Rejects fondling a unicorn horn – but this photo is way lame already. Meet Mr. Converse “I am so alt and I want you to know it.” Mr. AC/DC “best band EVER!” Mr. John Deer, “farming in the mid-west is just like so ironic man.” Mr. Descendents, “yah I listen to cool punk rock.. what’s that? Oh you’re 8 year-old sister does too? Can I have her number?”
Elvis so qualifies for Official Rock Song of Las Vegas.
And we’ll leave you with the Do You Realize? Lips video:
And the trailer for the forthcoming Flaming Lips film Christmas on Mars:
Go vote for the Lips or live forever banished from La ¡Cinta!
