The Oklahoma State Legislature announced that “Do You Realize??”, by The Flaming Lips, is now the official rock song of the state (they already have a state folk song and a state country song). Democracy in action: over 21,000 people voted online for their favorite from a shortlist of ten, and the Lips got a majority of the votes (a shade over 50%). I think that’s a mandate.
