Some bands will do pretty much anything to get noticed, but this particular band called Lipstick hoping to be invited to perform on Conan O’Brien’s talk show is simply asking politely. Singing politely to be more specific with their song “The Conan Song”.
The lyrics are pretty straightforward with “Hey hey Conan, wanna be on your show, and I wrote this catchy song so you wouldn’t say no.” Well there’s plenty of time to say no, but who knows, maybe it’ll happen for these guys despite some lacking songwriting skills. Check it out below.

It’s hard to tell if Lipstick is an actual glam band or just a band making fun of cheesy, outdated rock with their make-up, clothes and lines like “Listen to the guitar! It’s so catchy!” I’m really hoping for the latter but who the hell can tell. I’m no music expert, but that beginning riff reminds me of a 90’s movie with the lead putting on army boots underneath their graduation robe because they’re such a rebel.
I don’t see Lipstick begging to be on the Tonight Show, so at least that’s one advantage Conan has over his competition. But then again “Hey hey Fallon, wanna be on your show” works as well.
What do you guys think, should this band be on Conan?
