I've always posted about hating that song, definitely my joint least favourite alongside Who Knows Who (can't stand the Streets or the music).

We would slag it off if it came out today, but since older songs are not subject to the pressure of expectations and are taken for what they are, I kind of like it too.

It's probably one of their "emo-est" songs ever, in my opinion.

Has the word 'emo' gone through some serious semantic change from when I was a teenager?

That's definitely the whole album of Drones actually...

Tbf the same arguments used to be more about whether or not Muse were/are a pop band. Dunno if being an emo band is an improvement.

 

Were Muse ever marketed that way around the time emo was a big thing? (i.e. Black Parade-era MCR)

If we're being pedantic, 'emo' was a thing long before MCR even picked up their instruments.

 

Yay, genre wankery.

Of course, it was born as a sub-genre of punk and it was way, way more crude and untamed back then.

Over the course of 90s and 00s, instead, it had begun to blend with pop-rock and other melodical styles, and the more "innocuous" and commercially viable sub-genre that's universally known today was obtained.

Well, they were never marketed that way, and let's be grateful about that. On the other hand, I think The Black Parade is a very solid album, more then some may think.

 

The song title "dead inside" seemed pretty damn emo. I admit I wasn't expecting it to be accusatory. :chuckle:

 

Yeah, it could be perceived like that, couldn't it? :LOL: But, you know, never judge a book by its cover (I'm looking at you, Madness)...

MCR's Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge is actually a fantastic album that has aged really well. It's filled with the kind of angst-ridden hard rock that Muse need to write more of.

 

I would love if some of that angst came through on this "acoustic" album, but I'm not holding my breath.

The Black Parade is a good alternative rock, pop/punk album. Emo is (and has always been) something else. I thought those kind of things weren't even labelled as such anymore :LOL:

 

Muse is the antithesis of an emo band anyway.

I remember when I used to play Left 4 Dead, I'd play music over voice chat for my friends with similar tastes. One day I was playing Showbiz and a randomer joined. He was kicked after he asked me to "stop playing that emo shit."

That's because people tend to confuse dark alternative rock music with emo. Blame Jimmy Eat World.
