A composition by local alternative rock stars The Flaming Lips is no longer the official state rock song, and while one legislator claims Republican Gov. Mary Fallin allowed the related executive order to lapse for political reasons, the band itself believes it was an oversight that will be rectified.Apart from The Flaming Lips I don't think much about Oklahoma.
A spokesman for Fallin confirmed Friday the governor didn't renew an executive order proclaiming “Do You Realize??” the official rock song when she took office. Spokesman Alex Weintz said the governor had other priorities, and the order “did not make the cut.”
