The Flaming Lips

“Powerless”

“Powerless” is about the most un-friendly pop single you can imagine, but The Flaming Lips have nonetheless made a video for it. But at least the video is something all of us can relate to (who hasn’t been blindfolded and tied to a chair in the middle of a field?). The track is off Embryonic, the band’s 12th studio album.
