Muse: "Uprising" (Live on SNL) (Video)

Muse is slowly starting to threaten Radiohead‘s status as one of the biggest British rock bands in the world, and their new album, The Resistance, has only confirmed their ever-growing stature. The band turned up on Saturday Night Live at the weekend to perform the opening two tracks from the record.


“Uprising” is all grandiose strings and grinding analog keyboard, with singer Matt Bellamy offering his trademark Thom Yorke-lite warble over the top. And just to prove that the band members love prog rock, The Resistance ends on a portentous note, with the three-part “Exogenesis: Symphony,” which sadly didn’t get an airing on SNL.

Let's hope Muse never overtakes Radiohead in popularity. As much as I have enjoyed Muse's music, it just wouldn't sit right with me, considering how much of their style and back catalog owes to "The Bends." I'm not much worried, though. They hadn't even made it onto American television until this year's MTV VMAs.

They are weak. have success but that 's it, they aren't special, won't past prog pop status. Radiohead is another whole world. No comparison.
