Flipp was formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1994, founded by singer/guitarist/producer Brynn Arens. They were signed to Hollywood Records and later Artemis Records, releasing 3 studio albums up until their dissolution in 2003. The band were known for their MTV presence in the 1990s as well as its theatrical live show which included cartoonish personas, face paint, smoking guitar amps, jet-packs, pillow feathers, cereal, pulling unsuspecting concert goers onstage to perform with the band, and other such stunts. As of 2016, the band have reunited and remain active to this day.

Flipp performed a reunion show in 2016 to a sold out crowd at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota; with a line up consisting of founding members Brynn Arens, Greg Eidem, and Kilo Bale, the band have remained active and playing shows since.

Some notable support slots the band have performed since their reunion include Gene Simmons of Kiss, Cheap Trick, Don Felder of the Eagles, and Michael Schenker.

In 2017, the band released a 20th anniversary edition of the band's self-titled debut record along with bonus tracks.

As of June 2018, Flipp recruited Drew Fortier (aka Drew Badly) as their new second guitarist. Shortly afterward, Greg Eidem's son Donovan was recruited as the band's multi-instrumentalist, resuming the role once held by Kii Arens.

April 29, 2019, it was announced that EMP Label Group, the record label of David Ellefson of Megadeth, and Thom Hazaert, would release The Best of the Worst of Flipp, a CD and LP "Greatest Hits" Collection of the band's material, in stores July 5, 2019.

Eric Vobejda (aka E Mono Verbatim) took over as second guitarist beginning in 2020.

In 2022, he band released Too Dumb To Quit; their first album in twenty years.
