**UPDATE**

 

"Undisclosed Desires" debuts at #37 on the Alternative Rock songs chart this week per Billboard while "Resistance" has been moved to recurrent because it likely dropped below No. 20 after spending 33 weeks on the chart. "Uprising" lost only about 50 plays last week so it likely remains on the chart. New singles by Linkin Park "The Catalyst" and Arcade Fire "Ready to Start" are among the other debuts besides UD. Chester Bennington of LP was reportedly at the Muse gig in Phoenix in April 2010 and was favorably impressed by their performance. His band's new song debuts at No. 3 this week. Almost all 57 Alternative radio stations in the USA have added "The Catalyst" to their playlists while only about 17 are currently playing the hip-hop flavored UD including KROQ in Los Angeles.

 

Speaking of LA, Beckham, Williams, and Bellamy were in the Southland this past weekend. Becks was at the Rose Bowl for the Galaxy/Real Madrid friendly match attended by 89,317 spectators including me, Robbie got married, and I think Matt had a date elsewhere in town.

I work in a grocery store and UD is on rotation. I had a ZOMG :eek: moment when I first heard it. We have satellite radio that's linked to corporate office. No idea what channel it's set to.

#161 OoS*

 

*This album was never released in the USA during 2001-2003 apparently because record company execs thought Mr. Bellamy's falsetto on some of the tracks was not considered commercial. It was released in 2005 after the success of Absolution and finally charted in 2010 after the success of their latest album The Resistance.

Evil business people.*shakes head sadly*

Billboard has now removed "Uprising" and "Resistance" from the Alternative songs chart after appearing on that chart for 52 weeks and 33 weeks, respectively. Both songs are now considered recurrents. "Uprising" is still getting significant airplay on almost all modern rock stations including KROQ where it was the seventh most played song on that station last week a year after it was released. Another trade Mediabase has "Uprising" still at no. 11 this week with 853 spins.

"Uprising" has re-entered the Billboard Alternative songs chart at No. 10 this week replacing "1901" by Phoenix and this former #1 song and Muse's biggest hit in the USA has now spent 44 weeks in the top ten of this chart. Billboard's policy is to remove songs from this particular chart if they drop below the top ten after 52 weeks but "Uprising" refuses to be silenced.

 

Listen below to the band's live performance of "Showbiz" at a small club in Paris back in November 1999 and an acoustic performance of "Cave" at a record store in Bristol in the same year since we will probably not hear them on the current Resistance tour.

"Undisclosed Desires" climbs to no. 26 on the Billboard Alternative songs chart this week with about 400 spins at 24 modern rock radio stations while "Uprising" moves back to recurrrent with just over 800 spins at 56 rock stations. "Uprising" is actually being played at more stations than the #1 song "The Catalyst" by Linkin Park (54) according to Mediabase where it is ranked at no. 12 and will be removed from the chart when it drops below no. 15.

 

UD will likely peak somewhere in the teens unless more stations add it to their playlists in the coming weeks. The cable TV channels (MTV and VH1 and Fuse) here are not playing any Muse videos these days.

 

"Uprising" may be ranked as the most played alternative song in 2010 in the USA when the chart year ends in December. The only song which could overtake it is "Savior" by Rise Against.

"Undisclosed Desires" rises to no. 20 this week as it continues its slow climb up the Billboard Alternative songs chart. It has gotten airplay at about 35 radio stations out of 57 on the panel for the modern rock genre.

 

On the latest Mediabase alternative chart UD moves up to no. 23 while "Uprising" falls to no. 14 in its 57th week. KROQ has three Muse songs in its latest top 25 playlist although UD occupies the bottom rung at no. 25.

 

Muse is likely to be honoured as Billboard's Hot Alternative Artist for 2010 with two of its songs being ranked in the top five most played for the year. Kings of Leon were named Alternative artist of the year for 2009 while that band's song "Use Somebody" was the most played track at modern rock radio.

 

The Resistance has now sold 550k+ copies in the States. It is also still in the top 40 on the Official UK albums chart after the band's appearance at Glastonbury and remains in the top five on the album chart in France.

"Undisclosed Desires" holds for a second week at no. 20 on the latest Billboard Alternative songs airplay chart because "Radioactive" by Kings of Leon debuts at no. 16 this week.

 

Meanwhile, UD climbs to no. 17 on the corresponding Mediabase radio airplay chart. Mediabase changed it 20/15 and 40/10 recurrent rules this week which means "Uprising" by Muse has been removed/purged from the chart along with "Savior" by Rise Against, "1901" by Phoenix and "This is War" by 30 Seconds to Mars. As a result, songs by UK acts Florence + The Machine and The xx debuted in the top 40 this week on the Mediabase Alternative chart.

 

The Resistance spends its 53rd week on the latest Billboard Top 200 album chart at no. 156. By way of comparison, Black Holes and Revelations had 32 charted weeks; Absolution 28 charted weeks (0 weeks in the top 100);; HAARP 3 weeks; Origin of Symmetry 1 week; and Showbiz 0 weeks. BH&R still remains Muse's best selling album in USA with over 700k units sold.

Every time I get into a county car for work, Undisclosed Desires is playing on the radio. It feels like it's everywhere! :eek:

 

UD moves up a couple slots to no. 18 on the Billboard alternative rock songs chart this week and will likely climb higher in the next few weeks but fall short of the top ten. It is getting played at about 40 radio stations with around 630 total spins. The current # 1 song on the chart "Animal" by Neon Trees got about 1400 plays at 55 stations.

 

Unless Matt does a duet with Eminem or Rihanna, it is unlikely Muse will ever get a hit song played on Top 40 pop radio stations in the USA such as KISS FM in LA with Ryan Seacrest. Although "Uprising" got a total of about 7,000 plays at these stations earlier this year, the song peaked at around no. 49 and never made the Top 40 Mainstream pop chart.

 

In my opinion, record labels will be extinct in a few years. Their business model is outdated and failing. The only albums that have have gone double or triple platinum recently were Susan Boyle, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Josh Groban, Lady Antebellum and Eminem. Even MTV Networks has given up on music except for the VMAs and broadcasts mostly "reality" shows like Jersey Shore. Artists like U2, Madonna, Radiohead, Trent Reznor, Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, Pearl Jam and Muse no longer need labels to promote and market their music. They are doing extremely well on their concert tours with Live Nation or AEG but they still need music publishers like EMI and Warner Chappell to collect mechanical and performance royalties and synchronization licensing fees.

Update:

 

UD is at no. 17 on the latest airplay chart while "Little Lion Man" by Mumford & Sons takes over as the #1 song at Alternative radio. Also, TR jumps from no. 156 to no. 124 on the Billboard 200 album chart due to the start of the band's second leg of the North America tour and positive word of mouth and reviews of their recent southern California arena shows.

True. But maybe that's a good thing in the long run.

Agreed.

UD moves up one position to no. 16 on the latest chart with 660 weekly spins at 43 stations. It will likely be leapfrogged by "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" by MCR next week. "Radioactive" by Kings of Leon is the new no. 1 at alternative radio. There has been a rapid turnover at the top of this Billboard rock airplay chart in the past few weeks. "Uprising" however has spent 27 weeks in the top three which I believe no other song in the history of this 22 year old chart has ever accomplished. TR has also re-entered the iTunes top 100 albums chart.

I've started hearing it on my local station... I'm still more likely to hear Resistance, but I just heard UD on the way home last night...

UD climbs three slots to no. 13 on the latest Alternative songs chart (Billboard & Mediabase) which is one position higher than NSC which peaked at no. 14 this summer. Most of the radio stations playing UD however are only giving it light to medium rotation including KROQ in LA. The video channels (MTV, VH1, Fuse) surprisingly have not added it to their playlists but it has gotten over 12 million views on YouTube. UD reminds me a little bit of "Closer" by NIN and has definite Timbaland and Depeche Mode influences too.

Wow! A 24% increase in radio airplay this week for "Undisclosed Desires" means the song will climb to no. 12 or higher on next week's Alternative songs chart. UD is one of the three biggest gainers along with "Waiting for the End" by Linkin Park and "Sick of You" by Cake.
