Possible one the greatest/strangest live performers of all time, The Flaming Lips continue to be masters of the indie scene with their interesting music. Their psychedelic/alternative/indie pop band have been making music since their 1986 debut of Here It Is, but they definitely reestablished themselves with the 1999 with the release of The Soft Bulletin. The follow-up, 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, was their tenth album, and no less better. The album contained themes of love, mortality, and an array of other emotions, but all mixed in with a sci-fy twist. The record was best known for the depressing love song entitled "Do You Realize", but one of the most memorable tracks was the third, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt.1. Since then, they have released two more incredible albums, and are currently on tour planning to play most major festivals this year.
