MUSERS! COME ON! COME ON!
MUSE ARE GREATEST BAND OF THE UNIVERSE.
Five MTV Europe Music Awards, five Q Awards, eight NME Awards, two BRIT Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, four Kerrang! Awards and an American Music Award, Grammy. Is not that enough?!
THEY ARE THE BEST BAND! WE ALL KNOW IT. THEY WILL BE SO GLAD! YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT?!
SIT DOWN AND VOTE MUSE!
The Olympics need a great, epic, British band to perform. They need a band that is able to perform in a huge stadium and who are used to it. They need a band that can put on a fantastic show, that goes over the top. Muse tick all the boxes. They really deserve to perform at The Olympics. Not only are they one of the greatest bands on Earth today, but their stadium shows are simply breathtaking (their 2007 HAARP show was voted the greatest Wembley Stadium performance ever - beating Queen, Michael Jackson AND The World Cup). THAT is why The Olympic stadium would be the perfect venue for Muse's greatest performance - Muse's OLYMPIC performance.
They are the best musicians ever! And they are English! It's good cause Olympic Games will be in UK!
You want some good music? Different, unique and incredibly incredible? A taste of a new kind, not the same old mainstream music; interested in freedom fighters, politics, conspiracy theories, Matt Bellamy dressed as a disco ball, and sizzling riffs from Plug in Baby to Hysteria? Or in the mood for some quiet, inspiring music like Invincible? Or maybe, a heavy, indestructible bass-line? How about mass energy on stage, floating ballerinas and flying UFO's? Dom Howard's bright coloured jeans and leopard printed clothing? The anticipation rising, for a chorus of stamps of feet at the beginning of Apocalypse Please? A wave of clicking fingers in the beat to Time Is Running Out? Flashing strobe lights and flame-throwers too overpowering, even for Reading ^^ Leeds? The most insane band, but the most outstanding, how about you try some Muse?
Holy mushrooms! Muse must win!
What is tokio hotel doing here?! Haha it could only be a laughing stock. Come on Muse! Let's conquer the universe!
If you want epic Opening Ceremony then you need epic music. And there's no band more epic than Muse. They are British and they are one of the most popular rock bands in the world.
DON'T BE STUPID!
VOTE FOR MUSE!
Let's make our Olympiad the best in the world!
These guys now how to make an unforgettable show!
Moreover, MUSE are English so it's the best choice!
Muse represent a large part of British culture and are an example of what Britain creates - brilliant music renowned world wide! They have a large fanbase across the world and I know that they will create a fantastic show that we will remember and be wowed by. MUSE!
Only 23?! Are you insane?! They are simply the best! Their music is divine! They are the sexiest men ever! Their performances are incredible and full of energy and genuine strong emotions! Come on, guys, vote, vote, vote!
Muse, Britain's best live band for god knows how many years running should be THE band onstage during the 2012 Olympics. You're looking at the first band to sell out the new London Wembley Stadium two nights in a row in 2007, and then another 2 nights again in 2010!
With inspiring powerful and emotive songs like Butterflies And Hurricanes, Knights of Cydonia, Plug in Baby, Stockholm Syndrome, Citizen Erazed, Uprising and Supermassive Black Hole, stunning visuals, outstanding musicianship and limitless energy, Muse will own the stage and be sure to melt the faces off EVERYONE who watches!
After 17 years of hard work slowly getting to the top, this band from Devon deserves a spot at both the Olympics and the history books.
Vote British, vote Muse!
I honestly think it should be Muse to play at the Opening Ceremony at the Olympics.
Especially if they play Knights of Cydonia or Uprising. Those two songs are the best choices to play at an event like this.
They already have received numerous awards, even the Grammy, so you can't deny they have recognition from the community.
And just look at any of their live performances, if there's one thing that have to admit, it's that they're the best at live performances.
Plus, what better way to start off the London Olympics than by having an English band perform in its opening ceremony, don't you think. I mean if the Olympics were to be held in your country, wouldn't you want a recognized band/artist from the same country to perform. I know the Olympics are about creating ties between the different regions of the world, but shouldn't the host also have a chance to show the talent it has
So you should vote for Muse everyone! Cheers from California
If anyone like Justin Bieber does it, it will be a disgrace. Muse are the people to do it! They are one of the best live bands in the world and I will CRY if someone like JB does the opening act. It only makes sense for someone from the UK to do and Muse are the best and will deliver the BEST performance EVER!
Muse is, quite simply, one of THE greatest live bands in the world. Their stage presence is untouchable, which is quite impressive considering that they're a 3-piece. The only negative I can possibly envision with them performing at this event is that their performance may very well outshine the grandeur of the event itself. Yup.
Muse have unforgettable style. Their music is so unusual and Matt's voice is so strong!
The MOST IMPORTANT THING they know how to make a show and you'll be amazed by how they perform on stage!
MUSE - THE BEST! I LOVE THEM AND WON'T GIVE UP!
Muse are one of the only remaining truly original, truly talented and truly breathtaking acts we have left in a Britain that seems so overrun with Simon Cowell's puppets and other manufactured-karaoke-rubbish.
An opening set from Muse would really set London apart in hosting the Olympics and would blow everybody away - they are constantly commended as being our best live band, and are as popular in Europe and across the world as they are in their home country. So why not reward them with this fantastic opportunity?
Muse would be INCREDIBLE. Enough said really. None of this X-Factor crap. Give us a REAL band and something to be PROUD of!
Muse are the greatest live band on the planet. They've won loads of awards for their ability while live. And they're actually a British band unlike many of the other suggestions here. Muse for the win!
We need a good British band to show off our country and there's no band better to do this than muse! Muse are what we stand for there are 3 beautiful and incredibly talented men that I am completely and obsessively unlovely with. Matthew bellamy is a lyrical and music genius an they have come so so far they deserve to play any of their stunning passionate exciting breathtaking songs to show the world we have real talent. Vote for muse please they are the best god sent damn band you will ever find! Invincible song of my life MUSE I LOVE YOU
Muse are the most amazing band in the world and I believe that they should perform at the olympics cause they're English and the olympics are in London. Also they are really good live and will provide a great show and the entertainment will be talked about long after. One direction are crap, people only like them cause they are good looking but Muse are better looking, with Matt's cute eyes, Dom's leopard print clothes and coloured pants and Chris's soccer playing, plus their amazing musical talent they really are the perfect band! I love them so much, muse for the win!
Muse are a prominent band that have risen in popularity over the past few years. They are a reflection of different parts of the country and in addition are a reflection of different types of music married into one incredible and mind-blowing spectacle. The fact that they have won awards for Best Live Act years on end is a great indication that they would be worth the time and the money. Their music is thought-provoking, their style is iconic, and they would be a great representation of global awareness and culture at the Olympics.
Muse is the best group people have ever heard, and I think they are symbol of GB. And I can agree with other comments : English people - you'll be proud!
Muse are quite simply, one of the best bands in Britain. In fact, make that the whole of the world. Not only is their music one of a kind, they are a fantastic live act with countless awards for their stage shows and musical talents.
Matthew Bellamy is a lyrical genius, who with the help of Drummer Dominic Howard, taught himself to play the guitar and piano. Watching a performance of Butterflies and Hurricanes, you would not believe that this man was a self taught musician. His guitar riffs represent world apocalypses, and his piano solos are often to compared to great composers such as Rachmaninoff and Berlioz.
I feel that Muse would do a grand job of representing Great Britain in the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. For 17 years, the boys have worked non stop to stand out for the crowd, to not follow trends, and to create music that has no boundaries.
They stand proud as a great British band, and they deserve to represent their country in such a prestigious ...more
Muse are by far the greatest band around in the world at the moment; their ability to put on an out of this world live show, with anthemic, AMAZING music- is that not enough, Olympics board? I mean, come on, have One Direction and Justin Bieber had 18 years in the business, millions and millions of loyal fans, fans such as Madonna, Jay-Z and Beyonce, U2, the remaining members of Queen, and Lady Gaga just to name a small few. They are purely English and the whole country should be proud of them. They are true British music heroes.
MUSE ARE BRITISH. THEY SHOULD REPRESENT LONDON AND THE SHOW WILL ABSOLUTELY BE AMAZING! MATT HAS AN INCREDIBLE VOICE AND DOM AND CHRIS PLAY AWESOME. EVERYONE LOVES THEIR SONGS. THEIR PERFORMANCE AT ALL OF THEIR CONCERTS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD. I CAN IMAGINE WHAT THEY WOULD COME UP WITH IF THEY WERE WATCHED BY THE WORLD IN AN EVENT LIKE THE OLYMPICS. THEY ARE THE ONE AND ONLY BAND THAT HAVE THE OUTSTANDING TALENT TO ENTERTAIN THE WHOLE WORLD. CHEERS!
MUSE IS IN OUR HEARTS!
English people should be happy to have such a great band! It would be amazing to see MUSE on the opening of the Olympic games.
The best concerts I've been to have been Muse concerts. They're one of the biggest and most successful british bands, who have won numerous awards as the best british live band. So it would be only right for them to perform at our home Olympics.
