Released in July 2002, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots remains the commercial high-water mark in The Flaming Lips ‘wild four-decade journey, giving the GRAMMY® award-winners their first RIAA certified Gold Record.

As the eagerly awaited follow-up to 1999’s masterwork, The Soft BulletinYoshimi proved that singer/guitarist Wayne Coyne, and multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd had yet another masterpiece in them.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a sci-fi-themed quasi-concept album that cast The Flaming Lips’ most playful and profound songs to date in a wondrous swirl of ambient electronics, digital beats, and psychedelic splendor.

The record yielded the band’s top-streamed track, “Do You Realize??” (a timeless stargazing anthem that, in 2009, was named the Official Rock Song of the band’s native Oklahoma) and also landed the Lips their first-ever Grammy Award® win for the cosmic album-closing instrumental “Approaching Pavonis Mons by Balloon (Utopia Planitia).”
