Flaming Lips’ Song Official Rock Song of Oklahoma

The people of Oklahoma were invited to vote for an official rock song for the state. “Do You Realize??” by the Flaming Lips, who hail from Oklahoma, received the most votes. The House of Representatives attempted to reject the song, but Governor Brad Henry intends to honor the people’s choice and “sign an executive order Tuesday, April 28, naming the Flaming Lips song, ‘Do You Realize??,’ as the official rock song of Oklahoma.”


Governor Henry said, “The music of the Flaming Lips has earned Grammys, glowing critical acclaim and fans all over the world. A truly iconic rock ‘n’ roll band, they are proud ambassadors of their home state. They were clearly the people’s choice, and I intend to honor that vote.”
