In history Muse refers to any one of the 9 daughters of Zues responsible for inspiration in men.

Today our Muse still inspires men. She is warm and full of life. Extensive knowledge of music and art. She is a dancer, a comedian, a sinner, a saint, the girl next door, and a goddess. You will know a Muse by her hypnotic eyes, bright smile, quick wit, and the fluidity in the way she moves her body. If you have met a Muse you will be drawn to her.

Muse is a band that I love with a passion, it's the coolest band you will ever come across. Its genre is mostly progressive rock, it can get a little heavy and it can be a little soft as well.
Think of the coolest band ever and you're almost there!

A legend of a band. They are classed as progressive rock. Music that is genius. At times they can be really hard with the guitar riffs and heavy beats but then the song will go soft and quiet and be a lot more melodic. They are described as the post-queen band and have received praise from brian may. if i was starving and had £10 left i would buy a muse cd rather than food. i am so glad i have found muse, their lyrics mean a lot to me and have helped me.
i would try and say "if you like ....... then you would like muse" but i just can't think of an example. they are totally unique in their sound, vision and musical input.

The most talented, adored, GORGEOUS, three piece british band you will ever hear. Led by the eternally god-like, amazing Matthew Bellamy, Muse will continue to dominate the progressive rock scene. They are all very easy on the eye, especially Bellamy, who has every woman and girl in the word dribbling with his sex face. They have made a generation.
Twilight Air Head 1: OME!!!! rpattz is teh sexxx. muse r lyk, sooo effing haaawt!

Muse Girl 1: Ugh, Robert Pattinson is a hygiene deficient gargoyle. Matthew Bellamy is god. Muse is beyond words.

Firstly we must note, of course, that Matt Bellamy has the most amazing chin in the history of man.
never before has the mainstream music industry been able to revel in the sight of such a wonderous buttchin.
Muse are amazing as they follow the exact criterea for the most awsome rock band in the world:

Singer/guiatrist who distorts his guitar and sings in such an amazing manner that you think you are being blown out of the sky by an alien on acid?
Ridiculously amazing drummer wearing jeans in all the colorus of the rainbow?
Bassist with rock star swagger and awsome facial hair?

They also seem to have scarily obssesive fans.

For the record, they do NOT sound like radiohead.

Muse is an excellent 3-piece British band, which comprises of Matthew Bellamy (Guitar, Vocals, Piano), Chris Wolstenholme (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Dominic Howard (Drums, Various Percussion).

Many describe Muse's music as Alternative or Progressive-Rock. It can be delicate or heavy, and caters for all emotions.

Muse released their first album, Showbiz, in 1999, and went on to release Origins of Symettery in 2001 and then Absolution in 2004. They have also made a live album, Hullabaloo, which is avaliable on CD and DVD.

Muse, unlike many bands of today, play their own instruments, write their own songs and perform live.

In other words, Muse is the Greatest band in the world.
