The Top Ten
Unbelievably I never heard of Muse until I they played Uprising at the Grammys where they won best Rock album. Their performance was profound! So I started looking them up on You Tube and the second song I heard them play was this one Live at Wembley. Blew me away...
Epic Intro with an even more awesome story and even awesomer conclusion, in my opinion this is the best song from Muse because of its great chorus and overall performance.
This amazing song has so many great parts!
The brilliant theme, galloping rhythm, brilliant solo and classic muse effects,
Masterpiece! - GlonnAtronnAdonnAdict
Yes, this is a greater song but it's too high up for my taste, I would pick SUPREMACY as No. 1
There is no word for it other than "epic".V 122 Comments
I love the bass riff! There's nothing like it, and I think there is the perfect balance between new and old Muse in this song.
AMAZING SONG... should be followed really closely by New Born, Knights of Cydonia then Time is Running Out then Uprising
So many of their songs are pure power and intensity, and this displays it like no other, makes me want to got nuts
My favorite track from Muse's best album ever! The bass intro, the lyrics, the singing of matt bellamy in this song will never get me bored.V 80 Comments
Plain awesome. From the very beginning you cannot hate but love this song. Chorus is epic, vocals are extraordinary and the lyrics are very well-crafted. The suspense in this song leads to such a powerful chorus. I am a huge Muse fan and I have many favourites but this song is so clever and brilliant I had to choose it!
I just love it. it's my favourite muse song ever! I can listen to it over and over again, it never gets old!
Such a great rock song. It has such a brilliant vibe - nick14
Simply it's their best song. It gives amazing vibesV 74 Comments
I still do not understand how this is not top of the list! It's easily their most powerful song with excellent guitar riffs and amazing lyrics! VOTE!
It's the first song I heard by them and every time I hear it I'm like "ahh! " It's just a great track :)The words are awesome and added on with the sound track this song just becomes EPIC. I enjoy Muse
This is the best of their songs for me, especially that kick ass music video!
This song is really overrated, it's good but it shouldn't be this high on the listV 137 Comments
Amazing riff, peaking in the top 50 riff's in the world
I like most songs by muse, but this one is amazing. You can sense the passion and talent of the band through it.
This song is beyond amazing. Just the beginning of the song drives ME wild. Without hearing the powerful lyrics and vocals. I think it has got to be one of the best song Muse has done.
The song starts amazing and finishes even betterV 60 Comments
Should be number one in my opinion. This songs is a masterpiece of three songs perfectly pieced together to create that dark scene that Origin... carries throughout.
It's just an amazing song, I mean there are few songs that combine matthew bellamy's amazing voice with, to me the best guitar track ever
Easily top 3. It was the older, more hardcore Muse that we all love. At a time when mainstream would never be associated with Muse.
This song is beautiful and brilliant. It has soft parts, heavy parts and pure frisson inducing parts. A true masterpiece.V 72 Comments
An emotionally charged song with an absolutely brilliant riff. The type of song that will end with you hitting the replay button. If you have not yet heard this you are missing out.
Amazing song, amazing guitar and bass piece. AMAZING all together!
The lyrics are also wonderful!
The best way to describe this song is the meeting of chaos and beauty in a track charged with metal riffs but backed by synth arpeggios and a hauntingly pretty chorus, there is no Muse song that blows me away more than this one every time I listen to it.
Beautiful song, amazing bass, graceful drumming, and chaotic (and absolutely awesome) guitar. Has the best guitar solo I've ever heard.V 37 Comments
Every time this song is played live, you always wait for the amazing solo and see how it has evolved over the years. Look at the performance @ Glastonbury in 2004 to see just how this song gets the crowd wild!
God, this song has been in my head, since it came out, its absolutely amazing, 5STARS (If possible)
This song is amazing - first time I heard this song live it was one of the best musical experiences I ever heard.
I highly recommend that any new Muse fans who haven't gotten their hands on Origin of Symmetry take a listen - it's an absolutely phenomenal album released before they became superstars (after Absolution).
There is so much going on in this song and it is purely fantastic how all the components fit like a puzzle. In addition, it is incredibly catchy and absolutely catches the spirit of the band (which Origin of Symmetry truly does as a whole)V 61 Comments
Such an awesome tune, fantastic to listen to. Then again Muse has so many good songs. Wonderful
Excllent beat, I just love it! Matt is really hitting the tones perfectly! True magic. No more to say
brilliant drums, vocals and guitar. Lyrics are amazing as well. Fantastic song!
I love it, Bellamy sings from the heartV 97 Comments
I love the flanging in this song, it gives it a heavy techno metal sound, lyrics are amazing too
Great instrumental work and great lyrics. The song is great live. And just a sidenote. it is incredible fun to play on drums.
Unbelievably beautiful; this song has so many freakin' layers that reward multiple listenings. Even if it does borrow a little bit from Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence", it's about the same way that Rush borrowed from Morse code for "YYZ" (which is to say, they took something good and made it amazing).
Muses most complete song. Beautiful.V 56 Comments
Where do I find this song? This is the only song on the list I haven't heard, I'm sure it's fantastic but I can't find it :(
This can be found on the Starlight dvd. If you type in Muse Hidden Track on YouTube then it should come up.V 2 Comments
One of their deeper, more emotional songs. This is surely to make any listener freeze in place and get goosebumps during the chorus. This song is, in my opinion, a "happy" song (No more being ruled by secrecy from government and all that) however even though the government is "gone", no one rules and everyone is confused not knowing "who is in control". This is most definitely one of Muse's songs that you have to listen to while thinking at least a bit negatively.
Had to Ctrl-F just to find you, Ruled by Secrecy. Only Muse could write a song about a guy that has just come home to his wife after killing everyone at work. Brilliant piano work from Matt Bellamy and the explosion in the middle of the piece is just amazing. Easily one of their best songs.
Easily overlooked at the end of absolution but If you ever have the pleasure of seeing this live you will get it. Quiet and beautiful then hits you in the face with as powerful a piano riff as you have ever heard
Um...why does it still say 0% when I voted for this this song?!?V 8 Comments
One of the craziest introductory riffs in rock history. Period.
I heard this song just yesterday and am probably plying it for the 1000th time!
My favorite Muse track, with a drive that takes you riding a wave of euphoria. Thumping bass and strong vocals, just a wonderful track.
Its very beautiful harmony of muse songV 54 Comments
This list is a mess. I can guarantee that most of the votes here are from "new" Muse fans who have no idea that Origin Of Symmetry was BY FAR the best album. This, New Born and Citizen Erased should be MUCH higher! How are Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole etc better than this!? Listen to this and vote!
1. Bliss 2. Stockholm Syndrome 3. Plug in Baby 4. Knights of Cydonia 5. Time Is Running Out 6. Map of the Problematique 7. Easily 8. Eternally Missed 9. Hysteria 10. New Born 11. Mk Ultra 12. Resistance 13. Hyper Music 14. Glorious 15. Sunburn 16. City of Delusion 17. Citizen Erased 18. Thoughts of a Dying Atheist 19. Cave 20. Uno That is roughly my Top 20 (long time fan)
How the hell is this song at least not in the top 5. The blend and melody of the song is epic and is so much better than Starlight and knights of Cydonia. Starlight is pretty much monotone the whole song with the stupid droning guitar and is one of the most boring muse songs
Just listen to the song Bliss, then you might understand.V 48 Comments
Sorta futuristic groovy sound, with a nice backing guitar
Great song, it's a pity it was in twilight! Ruins the whole illusion!
This song is has a complex melodic structure, all the while sounding epic (and I do not use that word lightly).
I like every Muse's songs but this one is the best, for me. I've liked this song, before to become a Muser.V 30 Comments
Everything about this song is amazing; the vocals are sound, the lyrics are cleverly written and the beat is immaculately composed. There isn't a single fault with this song. You really live for the chorus in this one, you anticipate it with a sense of excitement and then an exemplification of relief occurs when it begins. You don't get that often.
Don't sound much like muse but a really cool song. - biddiebob99
I really like this one don't know why and how to explain but it is one of the best songs ever
I did not hear from them either but then I heard undisclosed desire.I Love It!V 39 Comments
Damn this song is great! And the ending is just beautiful!
I don't care what they say, the new album is going to be fantastic.
Muse�'s ability create great songs in many different styles is just awesome. Matt is one of the greatest song writers ever in my opinion.
Oh man I love this song so much this song is like a thriller you are thinking oh what a plain song in beginning but as the end keeps coming it just gets getting better and better and then at last whoa.. The last part is so awesome I just can't stop from hearing this song and the electronic voice in the background just increases this songs quality thumbs up for this song vote for it guys!
Guitar riff & high pitch vocals in the last part, 'I need to love' just amazing. I always listen that song in silence. It's an epic song from that whole 2nd law album.V 93 Comments
The Piano chorus was amazing along with everything else, this should really be up in the top 5 of their songs at least.
This song should be at least on the top 5, I love the piano play and the voice of Matthew Bellamy create a perfect mix! Its very catchy and pure, one of the best muse songs ever! You should listen to it, I'm sure you gonna love it!
Picking Muse's best song is hard as they have so many great songs as can be seen from the split opinions of the voters.
This is my pick as I feel Muse have done everything right with this song. The title is awesome (referencing the butterfly effect: where a simple butterfly wing flap can cause a hurricane), lyrics are powerful and incite the listeners to take action ("You've got to be the best, you've got to change the world, take this chance to be heard, Your time is now") and the band's full abilities on all instruments and vocals are on full display. It has powerful riffs and amazing guitar & piano solos, as well as slow sections.
This has to be Muse's masterpiece in my opinion. Even Muse themselves agree, as they had this as the lead single on an album that have fan favorites like "Hysteria & "Time is running out"
This song is gorgeous! I love it all. I am always a fan of blending classical and rock, and I feel this song does it beautifully. Matt's vocals are great, plus the piano solo is beautifulV 43 Comments
Easily the best muse song, if you haven't listened to it, go listen to it now! It has great vocals, matts great singing it live, great build up for the end, great high hitting notes. Muse show their raw talent in this song. Brilliant guitar playing and solos, deep lyrics, meaning to lyrics, really good percussion, Dom's drumming is extraordinary and Chris' bass a
Is amazing as always! I think this deserves to be number 1 as it pure Muse, from their first album and the title song. It deserves it so much. I'm disappointed this song doesn't get as much recognition it deserves. It's got a brilliant build up. Brilliant song. Definitely deserves to be in the at least top 5.
Come on guys... how could this one sunk like this? I mean,47th? Seriously? The lyric were as epic as it sounds...
This is one of Muse's darker songs, but from starting out with a heavy intro to Matt hitting a G Sharp in conclusion, hands down the most inspiring and beautiful pieces ever performed.
Absolute masterpiece. The intense drum build up at the beginning, the haunting lyric and vocal job, the intense pace of the song when things get going, ended when things come full circle with an awesome drum outtro make this a top 5 song. It's voted #1 from me to get it's rating on this board higher.V 21 Comments
Absolutely fantastic. The music really gets into your head, something that you can come back to over and over again. The Grand Bosses Edit takes the already amazing song and turns it into something approaching musical perfection.
This song is really powerful and unique in a way. Much better than the likes of Starlight!
Absolutly great song, the guitaring is awesome. If it wasn't for guitar hero I would never have heard this song or appreciated muse in the way I do!
Probably one of their most underrated songs.V 11 Comments
Awesome Piano and Bass Riffs
altogether the best Muse song in existence - seacowphil1
Love this one, the piano is just amazing, gives me chills
like a clasiique song really great and awesome
It is a very awesome songV 9 Comments
Why is this so low? An awesome song with strong, powerful lyrics. A great guitar riff, with nice vocals from Matt once again, and just all in all a really catchy song.
A classsic riff, an amazing guitar solo, a drum beat that is both catchy and complex, and lyrics that manage to be both powerful and mysterious. The bass and guitar parts go so well together in this song. It also has a really cool spaghetti-western space rock vibe I felt throughout Muse's album Black Holes and Revelations. Exo-Politics captivates you from the start, and has an astoundingly emotional and ambiguous ending. This song is very underrated, extremely catchy, definitely worth a listen, and undeniably deserves a spot in the top ten! Go Muse! You guys rock the universe! And I do mean that literally - raptorhunter
This song should definitely be in the top ten! Awesome lyrics and vocals as well as a great riff!
Cool song for the first time listening
Really should be the best..
Time Is Running out is good, and Starlight..
But This should really be higher
