I hate to break it to you if you hadn't already heard... but that Flaming Lips' 'companion' album to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was an April Fools joke for Funny or Die.

As just another entry in the series of "weird band does weird thing"-headlines that The Flaming Lips have been the subject of in the last few years, it was an easy one to fall for, and not just because it was posted before April 1st.

But remember, they actually did record a 43-minute companion album to Dark Side of the Moon, and believe it or not, Wayne Coyne kind of stands by it.

Late last night, the front man posted a photo of his band with Fred Armisen (who 'replaced' him as the band's lead singer of the band in one of the Funny or Die video) on his Instagram page, and went into detail on the prank's history in its description:

"Yesssssss!!!! Fred and us!!!! Love you Fred!!! And all the freaks at Funny Or Die!!! And... Yesss... The Flaming Side of The Moon started off as a very clever and obvious and possibly stupid joke by the genius writers at Funny Or Die. We talked about possible ways it could go. We did one take of the companion piece of music. They let us do whatever we wanted but they also suggested ( which may have been funny as well ) that we could just be bored or over analytical and just talk over it..We all played without actually be able to really hear each other... we ended up doing an abstract formless thang that,yes,plays well along side Pink Floyd's marvelous thang but , I believe , and this is just by accident, it also stands as a strange, emotional, free-form expressionistic peice of music on its own.. #floyd #freaks #flaminglips #funnyordie#fredarmisen #lovemoneyparty#drugmusicthatdestroyshate"
