It’s totally bad ass that the Lips won this, and it’s all thanks to you alternative music nerds spending so much time on your computers and voting for the Lips! (Actually it’s probably thanks to us promoting the hell out of this contest.)
Is this honor too mainstream for the Lips?!
Well, The Flaming Lips have a history of successfully crossing over into the mainstream whilst maintaining their integrity (see Warner Bros & Flaming Lips Alley).
