The Horror Honeys: Sci-Fi Saturday Jam - 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1'

Sci-Fi Saturday Jam - 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1'


Those evil natured robots - they're programmed to
Destroy us - She's gotta be strong to fight them -
So she's taking lots of vitamins - cause she knows that
It'd be tragic if those evil robots win


While not technically a concept album, or really about anything all that specific, The Flaming Lips 2002 release Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots has been embraced for its pseudo sci-fi themes and gorgeous psychedelic/indie/electro rock sound. Even more awesome? The album was turned into a weird-ass musical, partially written by Aaron Sorkin. Holy crap, The Flaming Lips are awesome! ~RH
