As of June 2016, they have sold over 20 million albums worldwide --------- yeah, real humiliating

I wouldn't put them on the short list of my favorites but they're decent. And they put on a hell of a show.

There was that one time he had some kind of madness. He may not have recovered fully.

That's almost half of Nickelback's album sales.

As a live act they're great. Even before they got *big* and didn't have such elaborate stage designs and effects, just watching Matt Bellamy spend 90 minutes racing back and forth between his piano and guitar and playing both near flawlessly was impressive enough.

I just haven't been as impressed at their musical output since the late 2000s. I've still gone to a couple of their shows over the past decade because it's a spectacle, but my musical tastes have evolved to where I just never feel the need to listen to their stuff during everyday life.

Muse has some good albums.

I used to be a Guitar Hero junky, and any Muse song was always a fun and challenging play

I agree their last album wasn't great, though I do like a few songs off of it. Looking forward to hearing what's next for them based on the new single:

Muse is one of only a few bands that are not German Industrial Metal that I can tolerate.

You all probably don't understand how high praise that is for me.

They started losing their way in the late 2000s and totally jumped the shark in 2012 with the album that came out that year or the following one (the first song from it came out as part of the soundtrack for the London 2012 Olympics, so I count that as the jumping point).

The last album was pretty good (if feeling a bit too political, and I can't really enjoy albums that feel overtly political) and I'm cautiously optimistic for the next one based on what they released last week.

I had a pirated copy of their 2004 Glastonbury show for a long time. They kill live, or at least they used to.

Origin of Symmetry, Absolution, and Black Holes are fantastic records. It's all downhill after that, though. Whatever... that's a damn good run and I wish em well.

Hmm, I liked the majority of Simulation Theory.

/Drones was a bit rough, I think the only songs I really enjoyed off that one were Dead Inside, Mercy, and The Handler (and The Handler is up there for one of my favorite songs they've done).
//2nd Law and Resistance were pretty much just filler to me.

Very important band, without them STEM threads about black holes would be pretty boring

Simulation theory was pretty good, like 3-4 solid tracks that I still listen to, but nothing can compare to their early run. Knights of Cydonia live is 100% worth the cost of admission to their concerts imo (because they always play it so you know you will get to hear it).

Your dad is in Muse, and those are the best seats he can get? I'd be more pissed about that.

I'd make fun but I liked Muse in the olden days.

Being at a 21 Pilots concert is embarrassing enough for the poor guy.

Looks like the first row of the lower bowl on the side, probably linked to an arena suite.

As a die hard death and black metal guy from the very first days... I feel the same about them. Praise indeed.

Muse is great. But there's nothing wrong with 21 Pilots either.
