Most Underrated Muse Songs

The Top Ten

1 Space Dementia - Origin of Symmetry

Space dementia is so good! The piano is great and the lyrics are really good and it just gives me chills. Really underrated.

I have no clue why madness is on this list. It's a great song, but it's anything but underrated.

Space Dementia is a track that effectively encapsulates what Muse were all about. It is easily their most underrated, as it is almost certainly one of their best, but never gets the recognition it deserves.

All new muse fans have ruined this list. They have strayed so far from what the truly are, and this song is a massively underrated song from an amazing album. Bellamy's piano craft on this record is outstanding.

The outro is Godly

2 MK Ultra - The Resistance

This song is great

This should be #1 - Idiot

its great

3 Showbiz - Showbiz

Most underrated song by Muse ever. The vocal range of Bellamy, the slow buildup of the song and Bellamy's vocals at the end are just awe, inspiring...

One of my favourite songs. Dark, just like much of the first album. - Aeterna

This song is the best on showbiz!

You simply can't listen to this song without MAX sound

4 Exo-Politics - Black Holes and Revelations

I am nobody to decide that this should be no1 but definitely one of the Muse most underrated song. The riffs is so catchy, the solo is sick and fits so well, the guitar part at the last half chorus is sick too, the harmony of the song expresses why Matt is a genius musician and his vocal range in this song is awesome!

Literally shaking my head at the number one. Madness. You are giving the number one underrated muse song to MADNESS? Although, you could pick almost any other song in the top 10, please dethrone the number one.

Very underrated song.. don't know why this song is not given much appreciation here -. - I mean, come on people!

Completely adore this song, the riff is addictive

5 Glorious - Black Holes and Revelations

Faith, it drives me away.
But it turns me on like a stranger's love.
It rockets through the universe;
It fuels the lies and feeds the curse. Believes we could be Glorious~

6 Megalomania - Origin of Symmetry

Although I like Space Dementia better, it's more well-known than Megalomania, After being a Muse-fan for over 2 years I had discovered Space Dementia, but only 3 years after that Megalomania joined my playlist, it took me 5 years to find this song, I have never heard anyone talk about it, which makes it the most underrated to me. - FullMetalTimelord

It's beautiful, the song is emotional and captivating, and an amazing ender - Quart

Fantastic of my favourites actually. Bellamy's falsetto and organ playing captivates me every time. For some reason, the drum beat at the end just gives me chills

7 Invincible - Black Holes and Revelations

The perfect song. In my opinion best Muse song within KoC. The lyrics are... I even don't have words to say what I think about them.. Are really great, uncouraging and inspirational. Also, mentions for Falling Away With You, Endlessly, Thoughts of a Dying Atheist, Eternally Missed, Exo-Politics and Space Dementia, very underrated Muse songs, too.

Another example of Bellamy's incredible talent, this song features what is arguably the best muse solo of all.

Madness is the most underrated muse song and the most mainstream one at the same time... Wut?

8 Map of Your Head - Hullabaloo Soundtrack

This Song was the first cheesy Song if Muse, that I really liked. It's so great

9 Micro Cuts - Origin of Symmetry

Matt's vocals in my opinion are some of his best on the track. Also it has a killer outro.

Listen to that vocal.

2nd Best Muse song

Perfection. Just so good. Unlike anything else on the planet.
One of their best ones next to Knights of Cydonia and Stockholm Syndrome.

10 The Small Print - Absolution

Accidentally clicked on 'Save Me'. This one is the most underrated. Everyone wants Fury to replace this on the album. Isn't known by the public and fans don't consider it at all. - Aeterna

The Contenders

11 Thoughts of a Dying Atheist - Absolution

Tons of people like it but it is good

12 In Your World - Hullabaloo Soundtrack

This song is by far one of the most underrated Muse tracks, living in the shadow of the more known Dead Star. In Your World shows that, even with simple lyrics, Muse are able to express meaningful ideas.

13 Animals - The 2nd Law

This song is technically very impressive: from the smooth arpeggios in the first solo to the powerful outro. The combination of singing while playing subtile licks as support is something that is not easy to pull off. And let's not forget the time signature changes: near the end, while the guitar and bass is playing in 5/4, the drums are continuing in 4/4, what creates a powerful contrast between gentle structure at first and rough chaos at last. Not much people recognize this, thus being an underrated song.

The end drags on for a bit too long I think

Brilluant prog rock song.

This is one of the best on t2l for sure

14 Madness

You're kidding, right? This is Muse's most popular song while others should have gotten more recognition. I would put this last on my list. - Songsta41

Probably has more views on YouTube then any other of their songs. Not sure why this is here.

This song is one of Muse's most beautiful songs and one of their most touching as well. It's what really got me into them because a loved the feeling and emotion of this song.

Dear person who added this song to the list
I think you have gotten underrated and overrated mixed up, this is one of the most overrated songs by muse, it's alright but it's not the best, please get it right next time

15 Revolt - Drones

This is so underrated. The problem is, when we're talking about any song from Drones, we mustn't forget that is a concept album. Every song is linked to each other by a story. And if we put Revolt into context, well, it's just EPIC.

16 Assassin - Black Holes and Revelations

This is probably the fastest song in guitar hero worl tour. It hurt my arm when I play it on expert - gelatinbeastworm

17 Take a Bow - Black Holes and Revelations

Take a Bow describes Matt's personal opinions on politics.

Spell Cast a spell Cast a spell on the country you run this describes how country leaders brainwash their citizens and trick them into believing their lies. WikiMuse Take a Bow

This is the best song ever! (to me anyway) it's really underrated though

18 I Belong to You - The Resistance

This song is a bit underrated... I mean its awesome, yet, people don't seem to see it in the album... It's one of the songs I most like

I love this song, especially as they weren't afraid to include something from an opera (in French, no less)

19 United States of Eurasia - The Resistance
20 Hyper Chondriac Music - Hullabaloo Soundtrack

This song is an alternate showing of the song "Hyper Music" and once you've listened to both songs properly, you get a whole new perspective of this song - It's beautiful

"muse's most depressing song lol"

At the two minute mark it's like - WOAH
