(arguably) The Best Rock Band in the World

About 4 years ago, the drummer I was playing with at the time slipped me 2 CDs by the band MUSE - "Origin of Symmetry" and "Showbiz." After giving them a few spins, I found myself mesmerized.

Fast forward to today, with a few more excellent albums under their belts - as well as a couple of friends (Jay, cough, cough) who are as into them as I am (and maybe moreso) - I would argue that this is the best rock band in the world right now.

Take hard rock, add a slight funk groove, an amazing voice, and (this is important) "classical" music inspired melodies and lead lines. Watch all 6 minutes of this first video and tell me this isn't mind-blowingly amazing rock music (my goodness, I love that chorus at 3:16).

Muse - NEW BORN (Live)

Muse - MUSCLE MUSEUM (this is actually the song that first made me a fan)


Muse - HYSTERIA (Live)
