Best Muse Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Glorious Glorious

One of the most wonderful songs by MUSE. It is very powerful and it makes you feel so intense emotions. I will always love this song. Simply phantastic.

I hope the only reason this is at number 69 is because it sounds sexy like Linkin Park

Unique song in every way... In my opinion... This is better than knights of cydonia

Outstanding song. Beautiful Space Opera feeling throughout. My top 5 overall.

62 Exogenesis Symphony Part 3 (Redemption) Exogenesis Symphony Part 3 (Redemption)

It's an extremely sad song and has a powerful meaning. The simple lyrics, the passionate melody and Matthew's vocals make this one of their most beautiful compelling songs. A perfect closure for the Exogenesis symphony and a song that made me burst into tears like I never did before. Muse did a fantastic job with their three part symphony and Redemption is as sad and honest as it can be, because it reflects everybody's wishes: to start over again! Beautiful.

65th? This song has made me cry on multiple occasions. The acceptance of our failing planet, the realisation that we need to change ourselves and our livelihoods to save ourselves - the song has such a great meaning behind it. Not to mention the heart-wrenching piano with strings and vocals bringing the song to a stunning climax. This song is written and performed with a real sense of typical Muse musicality - few bands write music like Muse does, with true appreciation of the music and the interweaving of rock with unexpected genres. This final 'The Resistance' track is a prime example of this. It's amazing.

Being the best song ever to exist, this has to be at the top of the list.

I cried when I when I watched the music video

I gotta say there's some therapeutic value from matts astonishing vocals and that chord progression I love the falsetto that comes back again and again throughout the whole song the lyrics are very deep and meaningful to and most importantly if you close your eyes it makes you feel like your in Hawaii

Great song! It has a nice relaxing vibe about it, I smile every time I listen to it If you haven't heard this song go listen to it now! It should be much higher on the list so give it some votes!

Great acoustic piece, incredibly we'll written and sung. Muse are the greatest band ever.

64 The 2nd Law: Isolated System The 2nd Law: Isolated System

How is this not in the top 10? It should be much higher. It's so hard to find this kind of music these days. It has a very profound meaning.

Amazing song! Very futuristic... Should be higher!

65 Futurism Futurism

This song is overlooked by so many fans. It's an extra song to the greatest album Muse created - Origins of Symmetry. The falsetto Matt uses in this song is incredible, especially at the end. I think the lyrics are really powerful too.

This sing is the epitome of what Muse crates. Screeching guitar, massive sound, desperately soul-sucking vocals, and a deep meaning that is unfortunately missed by many due to its exclusion from the original album. Muse has made some incredible music, but this is the best. Listen and be grounded.

It shouldn't have been a bonus track because it is overlooked for that

This song is great!

I like this version better than Hyper Music, but I feel like Hyper Music fits Origin of Symmetry better. - neonbrother

I want to die while listening to this song.

This song is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG I HAVE EVER HEARD. While the top 5 are not bad in ANY way, I just thought they won beause they are overrated.

Better than hyper music in my opinion

67 Yes Please Yes Please

By far, the best Muse song of all time, an AWESOME riff, the voice is perfectly manipulated and that hard rock style is great. Please listen it and you will be agree =) - mattlol

68 Guiding Light Guiding Light

This song is at least top 20 if not top 15. Such a great sound, its awesome

It was amazing in Rome. But it's a really underrated song.

This song isn't great but it's not terrible,

69 Dark Shines Dark Shines

I agree theat everyone has got a different opinion, but why is this so poorly rated? I mean, has anyone ever heard a song where matt conveys emotions better than in this half-screamed, half-sung chorus?

Love piano bit in the transition into the chorus. This isn't their best song but should be higher

I can't believe my favorite song from muse is so low in this list. I mean every song from origin of symmetry worths to listen. But this song is something else. With its guitar riffs, lyrics and the way matt sings just blow my minnd up. But it is sad to see it so underrated

After listening to Muse for several years, this song never gets old.

70 Ruled by Secrecy Ruled by Secrecy

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?!?

This song display great vocal range, with three ocatves ranging from A2 up to G5.

The music (as always :)) is amazing, even if Matt didn't sing they would still be incredible
Muse Forevah!

73 Escape Escape

It's a really underrated song but it conveys great emotion and always touches my heart

74 Defector Defector

A little bit Radiohead, a little bit Queen. The first song I heard by Muse and it got me instantly. It's different --doesn't follow the usual pattern of a song. I love it

Reapers, The Handler and Defector. It's an outstanding sequence. Besides The Globalist, Defector is probably my favourite song of Drones.

So far my favourite Muse song. What a beautiful, honest, and true song. Every Muse fan must listen to this masterpiece!

This song just sounds so cool! The epic queen esque vocals in the chorus send shivers down my spine. I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list. - huntlee17

Essentially this song is Starlight: Part 2. Fantastic song!

This song should be #1. I know it's new, but it's my number 1 favorite song. Just amazing that it's so far back on the list...

I kinda hated this song when I first heard it but I kinda like it now

In my opinion this song needs a lower rating

76 The 2nd Law: Unsustainable The 2nd Law: Unsustainable

Unsustainable is possibly the most hated song of Muse's careers, and very judged by the fans. I personally love this song enough to call it my favorite Muse song. It combines the instruments of rock into a new sound never before expected could be done on instruments. It combines an epic orchestral opening, a cool-sounding transmition about the 2nd Law of thermodynamics, an awesome dubstep-rock main riff and a breathtaking vocal solo from Matt Bellamy.

My favourite song from 2nd Law. Totally moves me and is totally epic. I think muse fans should be grateful that they try new things and don't just repeat same stuff.

This song is so powerful and epic. Muse fans are not true fans if they can't accept this great track.

It is such a good song! It is different compared to their usual stuff but it is great nonetheless.

This song is just one of muse's hidden gems. At first I always skipped the song and though it was stupid, boy was I wrong. It just pulls you in with Matt's beautiful voice and the guitar are sounds very awesome with its dark tone

78 In Your World In Your World

I don't quite know why, but I absolutely love this song. It has to be one of the most underrated Muse songs there are!

People only listen the new stuff and think all of the old stuff is just crap that's there, but I love this song

THIS SONG JUST ROCK! Come on; it intergrates Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" as a piano piece and the main riff in the beggining. Why isn't this number 1, or at least in the top 10?

This is one of my favourites and I personally think that it's just as amazing as dead star

Just because it's instrumental doesn't mean it's not good, Muse are great musicians!
