Mark Coyne (born November 19, 1962) is an American musician and one of the original members of the rock band The Flaming Lips. Coyne co-founded the group along with his brother Wayne in Norman, Oklahoma, in 1983.[1] The original lineup of the Flaming Lips was Mark on lead vocals, Wayne on guitar, and Michael Ivins on bass. Mark left the band in 1985 (shortly after their self-titled debut EP was released) around the time of his wedding.[2] Upon Mark's departure, Wayne assumed head vocalist and songwriting duties, becoming the "primary agent of the band's success."[1]

Some of the 1985 demos that Mark sang on were released as a part of the Finally the Punk Rockers Are Taking Acid compilation.[citation needed]
