The Flaming Lips, an alternative rock band formed in Oklahoma that has won 3 Grammy Awards, have just released a song called “Thunder Up” that can be listened to for free on

The band is made up of huge Thunder fans, and they have expressed their love for the team in the past. If you’re a fan of either the Flaming Lips or the Thunder, this could be a pick-me-up after Oklahoma City’s tough game 1 loss, although I still prefer the Trackrunners’ ode to the Golden State Warriors after their 1st-round win over the Dallas Maverick in 2007. 

Hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie for finding this.

      Actually they do more drinking than drugs.

    I love The Flaming Lips, I really do. Unless this gets covered by a local rapper on lyrics though, I don’t see the team making its entrance to “Thunder Up” anytime soon.
