Molly Flogs Houston

Flogging Molly makes the walls sweat at the House of Blues.

Fly film (and soundtrack!)

In a New York attic over a period of two days, Yoko and John filmed actress Virginia Lust lying naked while a fly explored her body. The couple used around 200 flies, all stunned with gas, to create the 19-minute film, which was set to Yoko's song "Fly." Rumor has it that Virginia Lust also had to be sedated.

Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins

Released by John and Yoko in 1968, this album was the result of musical experimentation during an all-nighter. It's full of Yoko's ad-lib vocals, conversation with Lennon and weird sound effects. Much to the dismay of most Beatles fans, the two knocked boots after the recording and went on to collaborate on even stranger art.

Cut Piece

The 1964 original featured Ono sitting onstage, draped in a long gown and daring the audience to cut away pieces until she was naked. She repeated the performance in 1965 at Carnegie Hall and in 2003 in Paris for the final time. Interestingly enough, she appears more at ease in the more recent piece than in the original.

Yoko Ono Fashions for Men 1969-2012

Inspired by the sketches Yoko drew for John as a gift for their 1969 wedding, the men's clothing line is intended to sexually objectify men. The line, which features neon-colored mesh shirts, LED lights across nipples, hands across crotches, and (very unflattering) ass-baring slacks, also has the balls to sell this junk at prices in the mid-hundreds. You can find it through the U.S. brand "Open Ceremony" if you're interested in obliterating any sex appeal you might have had.
