Flaming Lips Are Goddamn Commies

Most state House members voted for a resolution recognizing 2002's "Do You Realize??," but conservatives who said they were offended by the band's clothing and language mustered enough votes to keep it from being adopted.

Well, somebody thinks so, anyway.

A tip of the Stetson to Governor Brad Henry:

Gov. Brad Henry resolved the issue by announcing he would sign an executive order proclaiming "Do You Realize??" the official rock song of Oklahoma. The song earned more than half of the 21,000 votes cast in an online contest.

Kudos to Gov. Henry. The Flaming Lips are pure genius.

Washington (state) should adopt "Overblown" by Mudhoney or "Underneath The Bridge" by Nirvana. I'd be satisfied with "Magic Man" or "Barracuda" by Heart, though.

Michigan's song should be "The Big 3 Killed My Baby". Or anything by The Detroit Cobras.

Since David Lowery now calls Richmond home, I advocate for Camper Van Beethoven's "Take the Skinheads Bowling" as Virginia's new state song. Couldn't be any worse than the blatantly racist crap that currently holds that distinction.

I think the Flaming Lips should cover that Virginia state song.
