when a band goes crazy on stage in a beautiful way, usually out of some type of extreme emotion or energy they happen to be feeling.

Some good examples of bands that flip out are: Big D And The Kids Table, At The Drive-In, Arcade Fire, Bad Brains, and A.W.K.

It can not only be characterized by frantic dancing, jump kicks, or guitar spins, but also by intense emotion conveyed to the audience through their music(good example being Arcade Fire).

A great example of a band that doesn't flip out is The Strokes. Their music may be good, but i think they care more about their 1500 dollar jackets and appearing cool to their super model girlfriends than putting on a good show. Those Pricks.
Holy crap, i just saw fuckin' Big D And The Kids Table. They were flipping out so hard that when they finally got off the stage more half the band was bleeding.

THE PERSON: Jeffrey flips out if he even THINKS someone might be late for a meeting. I'd call HR and tell them you were hit by a semi-trailer on the 405.

When a Japanese car is lowered and modified with loud dual exhausts, ultra low profile tires, rims, spoilers, fender flares, racing stripes, blacked out windows and decals strip on the top third of the windshield with the name like "Mugen", very popular with some young Filipinos.
Why did he take that Acura and have it flipped out with all those racing stripes and spoilers?
