I heard Time Is Running Out back in 2003 when it was really new and a big hit. Anyway I heard it on the radio, on this station that is like the lamest radiostation there has ever been and I remember I liked the song really much (still one of my favourites) but kept my mouth shut because I thought that if THIS station plays them, it would be too uncool to listen to them.
Then about a year or two later I was using dc++ (lame, I know ) for the first time
and wanted to download something, and I still remembered the name Muse and typed it in. As it happens I didnt just download Tiro then but the whole discography.
I was in my kitchen making lunch with the tv on when Hysteria came on. After the first two seconds of pure bass, I forgot all about my intended lunch and sat in the living room staring gobsmacked at the tv. I'd never heard a bass line as incredible as that and instantly got on the computer trying to learn as much about them as absolutely possible. I unfortunately spent the next four years being the only person i knew who had any idea who they were.
I think my first experience of Muse may have been the mimed New Born performance on Live and Kicking, as I watched it very saturday morning without fail at the time, but I can't actually remember it.
Anyway I remember seing SMBH being performed on Jonothan Ross in Summer 2006 and didn't think anything of it tbh. Then in early 2007 a couple of people in my Geography class told me to listen to some of their songs and I listened to Plug in Baby a few times and got it on my iPod, didn't quite like it enough at the time to listen to more though.
Then in May/June '07 my auntie came over and left one of her CDs in out CD player, some rock compilation thing, and I listened to SMBH on it having no idea what it was, having only heard it once a year before, and I was like OOOMFGZZ, and the rest is history.
My friend made me listen to New Born in his car.
At first I was like "wtf is this shit."
Then I listened to some more songs, and now I love them
The first song I heard was Knights of Cydonia as I was watching music videos one day on the tele. Here's nearly every thought that ran through my head in that moment.
"...... What the hell is this? *confused* *keeps watching* Wow, she's hot... God this song is freaking weird.... Oooo, they're not bad looking themselves.... This song is still weird. *video goes off*"
Tell how much my mind jumps from one subject to another. At first I didn't like it, then a few months later I see the video for Supermassive Black Hole and fell in love with them. *has an obsession with black holes and loved the title*
I'm pretty sure i had heard them a while ago but being not that into music and prefering less heavy music I didn't notice. But when I started actually playing Guitar Hero(it took a while to convince myself it was fun) I played that song and was like holy crap that song is really hard and awesome and awesome.... hmm starlight... hmm newborn... hmmm Time is Running out.... few months later- MUSE is the best.
"Hey, I kinda like Starlight!"
I look back at that now...
I used to think that was the best thing Muse created.
SMBH off the Twilight soundtrack. I remember watching the movie and thinking "Oooh, cool song! What is the band called again? Hmmm.. lets go find the album!" So I bought BHAR and heard Assassin.... and so I became hooked.
Twatlight? Oh well.... More Muse fans =good thing!
First song I heard was "Time is running out" I think... My friend showed me a Murtagh (Eragon) video on Youtube . I didn't love Muse straight away,even though I loved some of their songs. It was my Muse obsessed friend who made me want to find out more. For like...many months I only listened to Hysteria, Starlight and Time is running out.. I thought the others were weird! lol
"OMG THIS SONG IS FRIGGIN' HARD!"
Knights of Cydonia, Guitar Hero III.
"OMG THIS SONG IS FRIGGIN' HARD!"
Knights of Cydonia, Guitar Hero III.
I'd never really heard of Muse until I saw Starlight on TMF and became well and truly hooked. Come to think of it, I'm sure I heard Hysteria somewhere before...
And caught the last few seconds of SMBH at a friend's house:happy:
It was a video on Muscle Museum: I laughed all 4 minutes, my mom tried to cry
So, since 1999 I listened Muse...
When I was 12,I looked up Hysteria by Def Leppard for download:Got a wrong(but much better)version.Loved the guy's voice,looked up the lyrics,made the best discovery I've made all my life.
Then I heard SMBH on FIFA,
I was in love.
It was rather odd:
It was Summer Of 2003, and I was watching MTV, I was a big fan of FRANZ FERDINAND: Still Am, and suddenly there were a LOT of "Top 20" Rock songs of the day
It was about 11AM, and I was eating and watching this "Top 20" countdown to watch a Franz Ferdinand Video (Take Me Out) when on NUMBER 20, the song "Time Is Running Out Came Out"
I Loved the Video, basiclaly the way the song was made, I loved TIRO so much.
Then commercials about absolution tour started poping out on MTV (weird eh? in America!)
and I was like "I ought to check this band"
then one day, the VIDEO PREMIERE to Hysteria came by
I ran to my computer, went to muse.mu and heard the earlier OOS (which wasn't released in the USA back then)
and I listened to BLISS
I felt in love
every SINGLE song talked to me, and I related fully:)
I think it was either Feeling Good or Time is Running Out..
My friend made me listen to them because she was obsessed. at first i was like..meh.. and i thought of them as "okay" for a while. then for some reason i just fell in love, and im glad i did haha
The first real song I heard from Muse was Supermassive Black Hole, and I was hooked + I love that red long coat Matt wears in the video. But what really got me was Matt's voice when he sings and that I could listen to him all day and not get bored. There is not many singers which can do that to me. + there is no swearing in the music "Very Important!", in my case anyway.
I heard Plug In Baby when i was quite a youngster. I think i matured soon after i heard the song haha.
There are a couple of songs with swearing
"Crying Shame" has the lyric "And we Really F***ed It Up"
then the hidden track "You F3@ng Motheer Fuc@$r!!!"
so they do swear in some songs.... very very few...
First song that I ever heard was Time is running Out, i was playing it on my dads pc not knowing who it was, i then heard the song and played it non stop for about 3 weeks, then i bought all the albums and listen to Muse everyday, woooooooooooooooo:LOL:
It was Assassin, in an LP by ProtonJonSA on Youtube. I fell in love with it.
that takes me back.
the first time i took notice was newborn on some random german music channel back in 01.
It was "Plug in Baby" back in the day...
I loved it so much I went deaf in one ear after a couple of days of listening!!
i think mine was plug in baby!
the drummer in my band wanted to cover it and i was like "who the fuck are muse!?"
then he let me hear it and i jus fell in love with them
I heard TIRO on tv when I was 13 with my brother, who was 9. We thought it was great and we bought Absolution. I loved Muse ever since, but I wasn't really into music, so only after my friend borrowed me their whole discography two years after I was hooked and couldn't listen to nothing but Muse for other three years!
