The Flaming Lips released a 24-hour-long song, sold on a hard drive encased in a real human skull for $5,000
The band The Flaming Lips, are known for their artistic stunts. As part of a year-long experimental album extravaganza, the Flaming Lips decided to outdo themselves when it came to bizarre behavior.
They decided that they would release a 24-hour long song. When asked what it was about, the band's frontman, Wayne Coyne, said it would be about life and death among other subjects. As if this wasn't unprecedented enough, the band also wants to encase the song in a human skull. It would be placed on a hard drive and placed in a human skull. The going rate for the oddity? $5,000.
Before the song was even finished, Coyne presold five of them. The Flaming Lips have also released a 6-hour song and a song made entirely of YouTube video clips.
