Well, screw that. >:(

No I don't remember that but it's good to know, even if it's now supposedly past tense.

Congrats man, those are the first two Muse CDs I got (thanks goes to Gagsy's sigs).

I feel useful. ='D

My brother recently got into Radiohead, they're his new obsession, but he hates Muse. Apparently he went on YouTube and heard some songs (lies) and he thinks they're awful. Kind of funny, when most people call them Radiohead copycats. If I play a Muse song without telling him though, he likes it. He keeps bashing me for it and whatnot. I guess he's just missing out.

While I can understand why people think of both bands are similar, the copycat remarks really bug me, sure Radiohead started before and maybe a bit of inspiration came from them but no different to how people say "OH FREDDIE MERCURY AND THE BEATLES REALLY INSPIRES ME", doesn't mean they stole the sound at all. To know all the stuff that Matt does for Muse is to know that they aren't copycats. Your brother needs a good kicking.

Muse fans secretly like Radiohead. Other way around, as well. Also, I see absolutly no similarities between the two bands.

Muse are similar to radiohead. A lot of record labels were reluctant to sign them at first because they were so similar.

I don't think their similar at all.
They're experimental (in terms of popular music). They have a high pitched singer. They're both fairly morbid.
But really the sounds are very different. Muse are more intense and dark and weirder in a more obvious way.

Radiohead are more subtle with their sound and its obviously less rock orientated.

But if you think about it, Muse were trying to get signed just after The Bends and OK Computer, and, I mean, Showbiz and The Bends are pretty similar in style, especially in terms of guitar work.

Hey, can I join?

I like Muse a lot, and recently I discovered that they are going to play in my city! I began to like them in 2007, when I saw they playing in MTV. I became a fan from that day and on.

I only have Black Holes & Revelations, so I don't know much about their other songs. Could anyone give me some recommendations from their previous CDs?

I haven't got Showbiz :(.
But the fact they tried to get signed after The Bends/Ok Computer doesn't necessarily mean they were copying Radiohead.
It might have been an issue of birth times :P.
Or maybe they were inspired by those albums (which is much more likely). But theres nothing wrong with that.

No, it's not that they were copying Radiohead, it's just that they were similar, so a lot of record labels were very reluctant to sign them.

Rather uncharacteristic.
Don't labels normally relish the chance to make money from artists "similar" to something so successful?

Darkshines is great.

And I absolutely hate Feeling Good.

Anybody seen this video of Matt busting his lip at a show in Atlanta?

The comments afterward make me want to hit something. They give American Muse fans a bad rep ='[

Making myself clearer: The comments in the video, not the comments at the bottom of the video.

They seemed to be like joking and smiling and cracking jokes and shit. Typical americans. (I am American, and I wouldn't act like that)

Lots of recommendations!

Thanks for them. I gave a listen to most of them and liked every single one I listened to.

I saw that a while ago. I think it's on the DVD for Hullabaloo. There's nothing funnier than people making fun of Slipknot.

this is the other best video Muse-related. It's just a big collection of clips that are Muse related and hilarious. From beginning to end.
