Flaming Lips flap flames

After Oklahoma voted against Do You Realize being adopted as state song because, in part, of the band's response to an earlier honour, presumably Wayne Coyne is making soothing noises to try and sort out a solution, right?


Oklahoma lawmakers who voted against making a Flaming Lips tune the official state rock song represent a minority of "small-minded religious wackos," the band's lead singer says.

Well... I suppose that's one approach to soothing things over.

The governor of the state has since stepped in, and used his powers to sign the song into Official status, thereby overriding the democratic decision of the senate. Remember how we used to love it when Bush did that sort of thing?
