The Flaming Lips will mention you by name if you help pay for their new six-hour song

Pin it

Wayne Coyne and the rest of the merry band of lunatics that make up The Flaming Lips are recording a song that's six hours long, and you can pay them some money to get your name mentioned in the lyrics.

The song, "Found a Star on the Ground," isn't a self-indulgent excuse for the band's fans to cough up $100 just to hear their name sung from Coyne's golden throat: it's a benefit for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and the Academy of Contemporary Music and the University of Central Oklahoma. So that's actually kind of nice.

Anyway, you can donate money to the Lips here.

Also, because why not, here's the band's most recent video: "I'm Working at NASA on Acid," from their collaborative EP with Rhode Island noise-spazzers Lightning Bolt.
