bdub77: Dear Muse,Your band sucks.Sincerely,Everyone who has taste.
eddievercetti: First the twitards and now this douche, why do Muse attract the weirdest fans? I liked Muse back when they released Hysteria and now, they attracted the zany train.
Why Would I Read the Article: ZOMG some politicians like music. Quick, let's all make fun of them!

Because People in power are Stupid: Melpomene
justabitdisturbed: nor is it about one of your songs sounding like a ripoff of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"
factoryconnection: Now let me get this straight, Glenn Beck aside. Does Fark:a) Hate Muse because they're bad at music (i.e. because they're popular and hipster douchebaggery abounds) OR...b) Hate Muse because their music has changed over time (i.e. because we're a bunch of former 13-year-old girls)?I like Muse. I don't love every song but the band is tight, talented, and bombastic.
IrateShadow: justabitdisturbed: nor is it about one of your songs sounding like a ripoff of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"Are you talking about Madness? Because I heard that song and instantly decided I wasn't buying this album. If I wanted to listen to a shiatty U2 song, I'd listen to U2.
Marshal805: Actually we're making fun politicians/pundits who are fans of bands/singers who are agianst everything they stand for.
BKITU: Is he channeling the ghost of a girl who was raped and murdered in 1990?
justabitdisturbed: Hey, I have an open letter for Muse as well.Dear Band Members of Muse,I really like your band. I have listened to them since Absolution (circa 2004) and adored tracking down and listening to your older albums. I refuted those who said you were a Radiohead clone, citing the fact that you were much louder (awesome wall of sound) and made basic classical music theory easy for the masses to relate to. The first time I head "Knights of Cydonia" I wanted to start a bar fight whilst making love to a lady I'd never met (the video for this song confirmed my feelings as accurate). Your 5th studio album, The Resistance, felt like a tribute album to several different influential musical artists (The Killers, U2, Depeche Mode, Queen, Mars Volta, Camille Saint-Saëns), however I did not let that discourage me from enjoying it thoroughly.I listened to your new album The 2nd Law yesterday. What the fark happened? How did this thing you did go so wrong? It's not about having a dubstep drop in the middle of one of your songs (you've always been a bit progressive and experimental), nor is it about one of your songs sounding like a ripoff of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For": it's the fact that half the songs on the album start slow, crescendo to what would normally be the apex of the song, then whimper into nothingness. What happened to the loud, chaotic noise that somehow managed to organize itself into tiny musical orgasms? Why do you want one of your songs to so badly be used in the next James Bond film (we all know Daniel Craig just isn't the Bond anyone's looking for)?I tried listening to every track of the album again today, but my mind (now in its broken state since yesterday) forced my hand to change to the next track on every single song. I hope that you someday find yourselves again. Until then, I'll listen to "New Born" on repeat, silently weeping in the corner.Signed,justabitdisturbed

Madness I link more to INXS or George Michael.
