21 The Handler

My current favourite song of all time, overtaking Citizen Erased. I love how dark it is, I love the slow repetitive baseline, I love the lyrics, I love Matt's voice and how his screams came back. I love pretty much all of it. The instrumental could be shorter as it is a little repetitive and goes on for slightly too long, but I can look past that for how amazing the song is and how is makes me feel. Favourite part is where Matt screams "AGAIN" at the end. Second verse is amazing too for it's base and drum only. - Aeterna

Best song off Drones. It's so heavy, it could easily fit on Absolution. And the middle part is insane!

Love that unique guitar riff. Only one hand can play that riff that's awesome. Matt have used much more distortion and modern heavy effect in his amp to produce that type of heavy sound. And of course vocals are amazing too.

If you watch them play this live, the lighting is so good.

22 Feeling Good Feeling Good

Feeling good isn't just a cover, it's a BRILLIANT cover, the best cover done for this legendary song. The intro is soft and slow, typical Muse and then it gets proper rock-and-roll-y, and the first song I heard by Muse and ever since then I've been hooked...! It's amazing go listen to it now! Don't keep reading this go on YouTube NOW!

I thought Feeling Good is their song. Now I saw for the first time it's a cover. My whole life is a lie. Anyway, great song - uros

AmaZing song should be number one! They remade this classic perfectly and enhanced it to a new level. If you've never heard it go listen now it'll be worth your time.

This song always gives me chills, such a good remake on an amazing song. they truly out did themselves with this song<3 I could listen to it all day

The best cover of all time

23 The Globalist

This song is great! It's a really fabulous tune, but I think people are overlooking it because of the super high expectations set for it. I mean when Matt calls a song a ten minute prog rock nightmare and a sequel to citizen erased, you expect a ten minute prog rock nightmare that'll at least be as good as citizen erased. But that didn't happen. The first part of this song is awesome, the middle guitar riff is absolutely incredible, and then it all comes down at the end. In my opinion, if the boys had decided to kick out the last part and instead just have like a five minute head-banging, metal solo, this song would have been Muse at their very best, no doubts about it. But with the path they chose with this song, there's definitely gonna be some hate going out towards it, but that's ok. It's still an awesome song that deserves to at least be in the top 15. Vote for the globalist!

The globalist is one of the masterpieces that only muse can make and it sounds so beautiful yet unsettling at the same time. It sums up the story of drones and is very underrated. The heavy part in the middle is very awesome and the piano at the end makes a person happy just from the background singing and slow melody. For a somewhat heavier album, the songs reapers, the handler, and defector are great but the globalist really brings a good mixture of emotions into a single 10 minute song. IGN 10/10

This had every sign pointing to it that it would be the greatest Muse song of all time just by listening to the first five minutes. I found it incomprehensibly upsetting when the intensity dropped. I mean, it built up perfectly and had amazing instrumentals, vocals, everything, but they messed it all up. Badly. - Songsta41

The applause at the end of this + Drones during the current is phenomenal. It seems to be a really popular part of the set, particularly with the reports of lifeless crowds.

24 Take a Bow Take a Bow

First muse song I ever heard simply the best buildup of any muse song, to start with a keyboard and to slowly build it up to what sounds like dozens all running riffs over each other in Orgasmic perfection while many beautiful vocals overlap creating a hugely full sound... Then the guitar comes in and you realise at this point that you have been listening to a true masterpiece

This songs speaks the truth. The atmosphere is amazing. The way the music builds up and brings in a dynamic flood of different emotions. As a writer this music helps me to write anything I want. I'm simply lost for words for this song. It's truly, truly amazing.

How is this not in the top 10? It's the most epic piece of music I've ever heard. It's like James Bond is spitting Charizards at a giant nuclear bomb while aliens crash land into a load of ninjas.

This is my absolute favourite song of all time it's sad that it has such low ratings.

This list is so messed. OOS was best album (along with The Resistance), and this is the best song off it. Such a unique song.

I don't usually like songs which are sung on though high an octave, but this song is unbelievable. The chorus sends gives me goosebumps as Matt Bellamy reveals His true potential. For me it should at least be in the top 10

This is their best song. The originality, the intensity, the insanity of it all. Everything turned up to 11. This is space gothic opera rock. You could start a whole genre off of this song alone

The vocals in this song are amazing. The use of instrumentation like the organ gives such an unique sentiment. This is a great masterpiece.

26 Supremacy Supremacy

This song is the one of muse's best song. It's very distinctive to any other song by them or anyone else for that matter. The bass intro to this song is the most badass intro! The bass will shake you and when he first open his mouth, it's the most godly thing you will ever hear!

WAKE TO SEE, YOUR TRUE EMANCIPATION IS A FANTASY!
What a start to the song, just awesome, their songs makes them so gigantic!

Just heard this song and is easily one of their best up there with Citizen Erased. Incredible song.

One of my most favorite song from muse. The starting and the end of the song Guitar, drums and bass are just beyond amazing. Guitar riff is more like a metal riff. And the Matt's high pitch vocals, makes that song really more energetic.

27 Muscle Museum Muscle Museum

Amazing song, so well crafted, what is is doing all the way down here?

The song about how INVISIBLE they were. Singing in crowds but no one would look. In the dictionary, Muscle comes before Muse and Museum comes after. Muse was literally ignored even in the title. This song is their most underrated masterpiece and truly shows their origins and humble nature. Listen to the acoustic version, it truly gives chills. It will always hold a dear place for Muse fans since it's so inspiring!

'I don't want you to adore me, don't want you to ignore me, when it pleases you. And i, I'll do it on my own. 'this song is awesome. Even though it's the second song they ever wrote under the title muse, its still the best. I love muse

Starting bass makes your ear vibrate. Amazing song

such a great romantic acoustic song... wt a diffrent guitar chords.. like you are in the heaven... loved it alot. like your pain has been sucked from you.

To me, most every song in Showbiz is underrated (considering that Muse hadn't even begun to rise to fame at the time). But this song in particular is a brilliant, powerful acoustic song with that hint of sadness that Muse always brings to the table. Not to mention that Matt's vocals impress as always and play a major role in setting the tone for this song. Whether you're a

This song here deserves a real high position in the list... It's the first song I ever heard from them and I was just like - WOW! How can someone have such a great voice? Top class song!

May not sound so "Muse", but this song is one of their best

29 MK Ultra MK Ultra

How can this song NOT in the top 10?!? It's the song that really got me into Muse and started to explore the band. I had this song playing in my brain for days! How Matt sings it, low and high tones, so diverse! Not to mention the guitar playing, awesomeness! Vote vote!

Go research Mk ultra for a little bit, then watch the Mk ultra MTV video. Then come back and vote Mk ultra up. - BoomBangBoi

Love the guitar riff to this so much I just had to learn it so many muse songs should be film sound tracks

What a cool song!

Practically everything I love about a Muse song congealed into one item. "Drones" is top heavy, but this is at the forefront of their library for me.

While my favorite Muse song is probably Knights, I'm voting this one because it is easily top 10 and currently it is really low.

Amazing song from the new album, the bass line is really cool, the solo guitar is really enjoyable

The riff is the best best best

31 Apocalypse Please Apocalypse Please

great piano and keyboard.
this is one special and unique song.

One of the best rock piano intros ever.
There is not a bad song on Absolution, but Apocalypse Please is definitely one of the best.
Muse's piano based songs are awesome!

Definitely one of their best. Love the piano and synth. Plus a very emotional vocal performance from Bellamy. - IronSabbathPriest

Definitely one of their best. Piano, bass, and that weird noise at 1:45. Crazy good!

32 Space Dementia Space Dementia

Come on people! Space Dementia is easily in the top ten Muse list! It has so much feeling, a great rhythm and the piano backing is to die for! If you have not heard it, I guarantee you will LOVE it and listen to it on repeat like I do!

The piano parts on this song are nothing short of flawless. Very well constructed song in general, great lyrics and vocal melody. Top it off with an insane breakdown for the song's outro, and you have one of the most fantastic Muse songs in history.

This is one of my favourites for the rolling rock piano riff. Bellamy's voice gets continually more manic until that fabulous drum roll. The bizarre chorus is a magnificent counterpoint to the first section. I saw this live years back and it was the one we all went mad to. Brilliant!

This should be number one what the hell?!

33 Invincible Invincible

I enjoy so many songs from Muse... I've been following them since 2003... Went to many concerts, even moved to Wembley (I'm from Switzerland)! Impossible for me to choose just one song. I chose Invincible because I love it and it has a very special meaning for me. Can't wait for SECOND LAW

I Think this song is the best I have ever heard! When I watch a video live I found on Youtube of this one... I have no words.. really
Obviously the guitar solo is amazing!

this song is so emotive and powerful
and it has their best guitar solo EVER! -

Seriously this live is just sensational. The build up to the final guitar solo really does smash it out the park. Not quite Knights of Cydonia, New Born or Blackout live but well up there.

34 Panic Station Panic Station

Great bass, great drums, great guitar, great brass, great lyrics, great vocals, great production, great solo, great song.

The best song from the 2nd law. Period. This song deserves a place in the top five.

This song along with Stockholm Syndrome is my favorite muse song. Panic Station has sort of a different sound than most muse songs, but it still rocks! I can't get tired listening to it.
The bass is awesome, the drums, the guitar, the voice as well. You can really see how the band has evolved musically when you listen to this song and compare it to some of their older pieces. You can hear the old muse as well as the newer sound that I still like.

This song just had an amazing feel to it that hooked me in. And for all those people who think I'm just another "new" muse fan who hasn't listened to OOS, it's actually my favourite album by them. But this is easily my favourite song.

This song has Queen written all over it, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. This is the best song from the Resistance, and one of their best songs of all time!

This song is so amazing!
How is it not in the top 10!
The lyrics are great and it's so powerful when it's performed live
And it reminds me of queen

Wow. Why is this song all the way down here. Should be at least in the top twenty. So well written, watch the extras video as well.

I hate this so much but then I really don't like Queen either

36 Follow Me Follow Me

I think "Follow Me" is Matt's ode to fatherhood. Although I didn't really like this song at first because I thought the lyrics are too simplistic and bland for a Muse song, and I'm not a big fan of Matt's new deep voice he sings with that makes me feel like Muse now takes themselves too seriously, "Follow Me" muse mean a lot to Matt. However, I do enjoy the dubstep in this song. In a nutshell, if you want to enjoy this song, don't be so picky about the lyrics, and just enjoy it as Matt's ode to fatherhood. Once I did so, I was really able to feel Matt's emotion and I am now able to get the whole "Follow Me" experience, and the message that this song was meant to convey. Once you get past the straightforward lyrics and think of Matt's deep voice in the beginning is a lullaby for his infant son, it makes the lyrics and Matt's vocal performance all the more suited perfectly for this song, and you can feel just how heavily emotional this song is, and how beautiful this song really is; at ...more - raptorhunter

This song is so cool, why is it this far down? Muse have tried using dubstep in their new album, and to me it has worked, I love this song and I love loads of muse songs too, I just voted for this one cause it's a great song and it's this low down on the list! I LOVE MUSE!

Such a brilliant song with dubstep... Modern and melodic

Why the hell is this up here?

This song deserves a higher rating. Maybe people will start listening to it and rate it higher in the coming days.

Can't believe that this song is not here - the fast and the slow, the pounding bass and its general awesomeness.

Please Guys listen to this song. It is top 5 deserving song. LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN!

For me the best of Muse. It deserves a higher position on the hit.

31? You got to be kidding me! This song deserves to be in top 10. The guitar solos are plain awesome. One of the best of their new album.

Great song. Muse knocked it out of the park with this one. Perfect theme for the Olympics--extremely motivating. The truth is that there really is no best Muse song because there are so many excellent ones.

Awesome composition! The lead melody has a great balance with the orchestra.

The start sucks but the rest is great!

39 Exogenesis: Symphony, Part 1 (Overture) Exogenesis: Symphony, Part 1 (Overture)

If Heaven ever fought Hell in an epic battle which decides the fate of the Universe, this song would accompany it. Excellent orchestration and earthshaking arpeggios make this Muse's best song in my opinion.

Amazing buildup, Thom Yorke like vocals, a great guitar solo, and orchestral perfection

Gosh...i only discovered this song today. It sounds like if Thom Yorke created a space opera soundtrack.

How on earth is this so low? This is the definition of masterpiece
