    Tiny Mix Tapes also reports that Oklahoma has selected "Do You Realize??" from the Flaming Lips' 2002 album "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" as the official state rock song, which got me thinking about an official rock song for D.C.

    Gotta be Dischord Records, right? Gotta be something as scene-making as Minor Threat or revolutionary as Fugazi. There's a host of '80s punks and emos I'd throw in the mix: Dag Nasty, Nation of Ulysses, Government Issue, Grey Matter, and on and on.

    But I keep thinking of one title. Bad Brains' "Banned in D.C."

    What's your choice?
