Last night, The Flaming Lips did indeed break the Guinness World Record for most concerts performed in 24 hours in different cities, and they did it to the exuberant, confetti-bursting joy of At War with the Mystics track "Yeah Yeah Yeah Song (With All Your Power)" at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Then they received their award — and continued to perform, playing The Soft Bulletin's "Race for the Prize."

The entire covers-filled 24-hour nonstop tour was streamed live via the O Music Awards, which thankfully kept several performances on its website. Below, watch some of the highlights, including the record-breaking performance of "Yeah Yeah Yeah":

And a bonus: At the actual O Music Awards, Big Freedia made an appearance to perform "Azz Everywhere" and "Gin In My System" and did not disappoint. Freedia also grabbed the "Too Much Ass for TV Award" — watch the acceptance/performance below. "Another accomplishment for New Orleans and bounce music," Freedia said.
