The Flaming Lips are an alternative rock band known for inspirational music and theatrical, fun-filled concerts. Some of their hit songs include Do you Realize?, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and She Don’t Use Jelly.

The Flaming Lips became a rock music band in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983. Their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their songs show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as “What Is the Light? They are also known and appreciated for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, lots of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he rolls around the band’s audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the “50 Bands to See Before You Die.”

The Flaming Lips scored a big hit in 1993 with “She Don’t Use Jelly”. Although the song is their only hit single in the U.S., the band has maintained critical respect and commercial viability with albums such as 1999’s The Soft Bulletin (which was NME magazine’s Album of the Year) and 2002’s Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. The Flaming Lips have had more hit singles in the UK and Europe than in the U.S. By 2007, the group had earned three Grammy Awards, including two for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

The Flaming Lips 1999 release, The Soft Bulletin quickly became one of the underground hits of the year, even widely considered to be one of the best albums of the entire decade. Compared by many music critics to The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds because of its inclusion of harmonies and orchestrated sounds, The Soft Bulletin also featured greater use of synthesizers, drum machines, sound effects and studio manipulation.

The Flaming Lips joined bands Cake and Modest Mouse on the Unlimited Sunshine Tour, three years later, in 2002. The band also released the full-length Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots to much critical acclaim. Featuring guest musician Yoshimi P-We and demonstrating more use of electronic instruments and computer manipulation than The Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi is widely considered to be The Flaming Lips’ first critical and commercial success after nearly twenty years as a band. The final track on the album earned a 2003 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance, and the album was certified gold on April 10, 2006. The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots have both been released on DVD-Audio.

The Flaming Lips release of 2011 was a 12″ EP with Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band and is sold only at the band’s annual New Years shows in Oklahoma City.

Here’s a list of the Grammy Awards for which  The Flaming Lips have won and been nominated: Won: (2003) Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Approaching Pavonis Mons by Balloon (Utopia Planitia)”, Nominated: (2004) Best Alternative Album for Fight Test EP, Nominated: (2007) Best Alternative Album for At War With the Mystics, Won: (2007) Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “The Wizard Turns On…”, Won: (2007) Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for At War with the Mystics, Nominated: (2008) Best Surround Sound Album for At War With the Mystics 5.1, Nominated: (2007) for Best International Act.
