Really the only band you need in your life.

Their music will soundtrack and heighten every emotion you've ever experienced, whilst quite literally blowing your mind, reducing you to tears, making your heart burst in sheer rapture and making you want to bow down and worship at the feet of the three virtuosically talented English musicians who created it.

Like drugs, only much better.
Muse = aural sex.

Muse is a great band from Britain, heres why:
- They have accessible music but its not too accessible
- They are noted for their outstanding live performances
- They are obviously talented and Matt Bellamy has never had a music lesson in his life
- Their performance at Glastonbury is what made them popular in Britain (they are good, thats what made them mainstream)
- Their two great albums Origin Of Symmetry and Absolution flirt with the line of dramatic-ness and lameness giving them an emotional intensity
- This intensity gives them soul and passion
- Their songs are not too cryptic but some have an air secrecy
- The music they play is not too complex and their songs can be catchy but it is not incredibly easy to play their music
- Matt Bellamy is awesome
- They are not into stupid optimism but they are definitely not depressed

Reasons to hate:
- So dramatic they come over as lame (not to me)
- They are Radiohead copycats (seriously, after Showbiz their music sounds nothing like Radiohead, if it ever did)
- Being a dumbass (there are plenty in the world)
- Not liking the vocals ... some might consider Origin Of Symmetry abrasive to the ears (at least he doesnt whine like Thom Yorke, and its not really very bad)
- Recently they have been singing about the government (OK this is a little lame, I still love them)
- Dont like heavy music at all (it might be a valid excuse)

As you can see the majority of people should like Muse, so listen to them.
Person 1: Have you heard of Muse? They are awesome.

Person 2: Yeah they are my favorite band; I love so many of their songs: Plug In Baby, Bliss, New Born, Feeling Good, Muscle Museum, Time Is Running Out, Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, The Small Print, Endlessly, City Of Delusion, Map Of The Problematique, Knights Of Cydonia

Person 1: Yeah! We should see them live! I want to hear them play Stockholm Syndrome so badly!

A very successful and talented heavy rock band that originated in Devon. Consisting of Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, piano), Dominic Howard (drums), and Christopher Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals), they joined together in 1994 at the age of sixteen, calling themselves the Rocket Baby Dolls. Their plan was to form this band for one week to take the piss in a local Battle of the Bands contest, arriving with makeup, stupid hair, the whole thing. They came to lose, expected to lose, but they won because of the attitude, and realised that's what music was all about. They decided to stick together and change their name to Muse, releasing their first EP when they were about 17 and released their first album, Showbiz, in 2000 (average age 21). As of 2007, the group has five albums, including the live Hullabalooalbum.
Muse is an eclectic band, a mixture of new prog, heavy metal, and indie rock with a mixture of opera vocals (Matt Bellamy has a strong vibrato for a rock singer) and classical piano (such as the elegant piano solo in the middle of Butterflies and Hurricanes). They site Queen, Rage Against The Machine, and Jeff Buckely as their major influences.
Muse are infamous for trashing their equipment, heavy touring, lively shows, taking the piss when they aren't aloud to play live, and having crazy laughs. Definitely pwoper wock.
"I got tickets to the next Muse concert whoooooot!"

Amazing band from England. They are all of the below, and more, so amazing that words cannot describe them. The sheer intensity and twisted beauty of their lyrics and songs make them unique. They are immensely talented, all three (Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dom Howard), and Knights of Cydonia is a LEGEND.
Muse are drama, beauty, twisted joy, and that funny feeling you get when you've had too much sugar, embodied. They are also very easy on the eyes.

1) a creative inspiration

2) A inhumanly awesome band that manages to fuse rock and classical and still make it the best thing ever thus reducing me to tears.

They take everything good in the world, times it by 10, add some mushrooms, and make it amazing. You may burst into tears upon listening to Butterflies and Hurricanes, faint to Our Time is Running out, and possibly die if you are fortunate enough to see them live.

You will no longer need food, water, drugs, sex or whatever else you think you need now as long as you have Muse
Person With Ears 1: Wha...what's playing now? *cries*
Person With Ears 2: it...its Muse

*person one and two die with euphoria*
