In light of the recent bickering between Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne and the Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler, we figured to take you back to 1993. A time when the Flaming Lips personified the carefree attitude of their hit single “She Don’t Use Jelly”.
“She Don’t Use Jelly” from Transmissions from the Satellite Heart is the Lips biggest radio hit to date. The song became popular after being featured on Beavis and Butt-Head nearly a year after the album’s release. It is still their highest charting single to date (and the only to chart on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100), even entering the top 10 of the Modern Rock Tracks chart. “She Don’t Use Jelly” is one of the few pre-The Soft Bulletin songs still played at the band’s shows, usually preceded by a video of Jon Stewart introducing the song on The Jon Stewart Show.
Wiki: The success of the song garnered the band a guest spot on the TV show Beverly Hills, 90210, in which they played live at the show’s hangout, The Peach Pit, where supporting character Steve Sanders (portrayed by actor Ian Ziering) remarked, “You know, I’ve never been a big fan of alternative music, but these guys rocked the house!”
