The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips (formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983) is an American rock band.

The band is known for their lush, multi-layered, psychedelic arrangements, spacey lyrics and bizarre song and album titles They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience.

In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die".

The group recorded several albums and EPs on an indie label in the 1980s and early 1990s.

After signing to Warner Brothers, they scored a hit in 1993 with "She Don’t Use Jelly".

Although it has been their only hit single in the U.S., the band has maintained critical respect and, to a lesser extent, commercial viability through albums such as 1999’s The Soft Bulletin and 2002’s Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.

They have had more hit singles in the UK and Europe than in the U.S.

In February of 2007, they were nominated for a BRIT Award in the "Best International Act" category.

As of 2007 the group has collected three Grammy Awards, including two for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
