Best Muse SongsGlonnAtronnAdonnAdict
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
NO SONG COULD BE BETTER!V 126 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
Everbody I know likes this song, regardless of whether they like Muse or not. They still like this song.V 82 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!
Awesome SongV 141 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 is one of the best tracks I've ever heard, from any band. I listen to a lot of music, from Johnny Cash to Eminem, and have heard a lot of really great pieces of art. But this song, start to finish, is simply beautiful.V 79 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.
I like the shouting at the end. - biddiebob99
Amazing song, amazing guitar and bass piece. AMAZING all together!
The lyrics are also wonderful!

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.
Starts with a stunning riff accompanied by a great bassline, then began building in intensity throughout the whole song. Vocals during the chorus are amazing, and the ones after the second chorus almost inhuman and divine-sounding.V 61 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).

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!
UNFAIR! TOP 3. - frikianV 97 Comments
I love the flanging in this song, it gives it a heavy techno metal sound, lyrics are amazing too
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).
Great instrumental work and great lyrics. The song is great live. And just a sidenote. it is incredible fun to play on drums.
Best guitar in a rock song, ever!V 56 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.
One of the greatest of all timeV 55 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
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!
Just totally, utterly, fantastically BRILLIANT~!
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)
The most beautiful Muse's song. Without any hesitation.V 49 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
Sexiest Muse song.V 40 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.
The REAL MuseV 23 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"
I think this song represents best what muse stands for.V 45 Comments
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.
This and Uprising is my favouriteV 16 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!
Learning this song on the drums is an absolute challenge. It's fast, it's technical and, at times, very complicated. I'll never forget the amazing, simplistic, yet unique guitar work, and the chorus is just absolute perfection. The way matt recorded his voice multiple times to create barber cortet feel, mixed to together with instrumentals, creates an absoulute masterpiece.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
A very great song! beautiful, it starts with a fantastic part of piano and then it is everything just wonderfulV 10 Comments
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
