The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, more.

Muse? Do I REALLY need to say ANYTHING more? Muse are LEGENDS! They're some of the most accomplished musicians on the planet and Matt Bellamy is just unbearably awesome.

Linkin Park is nu-metal. Not alternative. And Muse is the most addicting band around. Mostly cause their music is so amazing

If any of you have seen Muse live, they will forever be your number one band. Especially on their current tour (Drones 2015).

In the entire list this is a rock band in real sense!
