Cover Alert: The Flaming Lips – Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s been a busy week in the weird and wacky world of The Flaming Lips. This past Sunday, the psychedelic-rock act was featured prominently in a Super Bowl commercial for the Hyundai Santa Fe, while on Wednesday they revealed that they were hard at work putting their indelible stamp on a full album cover of The Stone Roses’ 1989 self-titled debut. A few days back Wayne Coyne & Co. uploaded a video of their oft-played cover of Queen’s signature song, Bohemian Rhapsody, to their YouTube channel.

The tune first appeared on Queen’s 1975 release Night at the Opera, and is the United Kingdom’s third best selling single of all-time. While Wayne certainly doesn’t have the singing voice of Freddy Mercury, the Lips do a dutiful job with it by not straying too far from the original, but certainly drag the song through their acid-drenched freakiness. Let’s check out this very NSFW video…
