Default The Flaming Lips

These guys are amazing. They always have really bizzare and cool song titles. My all time favorite song of their's is "She Don't Use Jelly".

Supposedly their live shows are pretty crazy. If anyone has seen them live, I'd be interested in hearing what it was like.

Never seen them live but want to ...BADLY

On the Fearless Freaks DVD there`s a clip of them playing in the 80s in some small club & the whole stage is on fire.

Funniest thing I have ever seen on a music video

They look so pretty on stage.... I'm going to their next UK show I don't care where it is. Bring it on.

my bro was friends with the bassist 20 years ago... shame they didn't stay friends.

Saw them at Glasto a couple years ago, they were good, but a little weird. Very good, though eclectic music

I've seen them live and wasn't too impressed. I hate the long drawn out songs. Thier cover of "Can't get you out of my head" was pretty good.

Favorite Lips album? It's tough, but i'd say The Soft Bulletin. Transmissions is a close second though.

I saw them back up Beck on Austin City Limits. Though i'm sure they are tallented, it was an odd match. It was as though they were trying too hard. I can't hold it against them. If I was on the stage with Beck, I'd shove the tallent bar too.
