Color us surprised, impressed, and whatever else, because we had NO IDEA that Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips was so into the NBA!
In fact, he's absolutely confident that Oklahoma City is going to win the NBA championship:
"Of course, what do you mean 'Can they win?' They will win."
He and the Lips recently re-recorded one of their signature songs called Race for the Prize as an anthem for the team!
The new version is called Thunder Up! Racing for the Prize, and the music is the same.
The difference is, of course, Coyne changed the lyrics:
"Theirs is to win/ We win with them/ They'll keep fighting for Oklahoma!"
Now that's team commitment!
We wonder if it'll be played during one of the games!
Let's hope so!
