"Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1" is a song by the American alternative rock band The Flaming Lips, released as the second single taken from their 2002 album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. It reached #18 in the UK Singles Chart as the highest charting single from the album, after which the band made its debut appearance on Top of the Pops. It is also a playable song in Rock Band 3 and Fantasia: Music Evolved with 2 remixes: Mumbai and Grimecraft. It is also one of the band's most popular songs they've played live, and it usually is accompanied by a massive sing along at Wayne's urgency. During a concert in early 2014, Miley Cyrus and Wayne appeared on stage and sang the song together, and the two have since then been constant musical partners within each other.
