    Last night on TV's Jeopardy!, both Kurt Vile and The Flaming Lips were correct answers. The syndicated quiz show is currently in the midst of "College Champions" week, but that doesn't mean the contestants have their music knowledge on lock. Alex Trebek read, "The Violators Assist This "Pretty Pimpin'" Rocker In His Foul Work." Unfortunately, none of the contestants had the correct answer for the host.

    Later, Trebek read "In 2015 Miley Cyrus Toured With These Indie Darlings Who Sound Like Their Mouths Are On Fire." There is no word on whether any of these collegiate standouts were able to produce the right question response, but with all of the attention paid to Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, we are hoping someone got this right.

    A little over a month ago, Wayne Coyne, singer, guitarist, and songwriter for The Flaming Lips dropped by ARTISTdirect to give us a look inside his head. The band is currently set to play gigs throughout the spring, beginning with two shows at Belly Up, in Aspen, Colorado, February 12-13, then at Bogota's Estereo Picnic Festival on March 12th, followed by four more shows across the U.S. in April and May, including a May 26th date in Morrison, Colorado at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre performing their 1999 album The Soft Bulletin with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra .

    Jeopardy question today!!!!!! #flaminglips #theflaminglips #mileycyrusandherdeadpetz
