It comes as no surprise that The Beatles feature prominently in the top ten records that changed Wayne Coyne's life ('Strawberry Fields Forever' and The White Album), though the inclusion of Beastie Boys' Check Your Head perhaps does: "What’s really impressive was that it came from guys who weren’t all about rock. To us, their rap started to feel like a cooler version of punk music. It became the new, radical punk rock. To me, it was like hearing Black Flag or Black Sabbath. And to be honest, I didn’t even care what the genre was. I just liked it." Bjork, Beach House, Black Sabbath, Miles Davis and Tame Impala are also named.
