“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.
