How to Destroy the World # 3: Existential Angst, or OK by Me

Oklahoma just upped the anty for cool by declaring home-grown heros "The Flaming Lips" tune "Do You Realize??" as their state rock song.

What other state has stood up and embraced a bunch of self-proclaimed "Punk Rockers ... Taking Acid"? Who else would embrace such existential angst as these tourism-inducing lyrics:


Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die


And as if that weren't cool enough, their state folk song is a number by Guthrie and their state country song is by John & Bob Wills.
