    I was thinking wishfully for crowd sing-alongs. But I really don't see why they're left out of DLC. A lot of DLC songs would sound amazing with them, not just Muse.

    Having only seen the HAARP DVD in the way of full live performances, I can't comment on how different each concert is different. But they do differ from studio recordings (the New Born solo is a prime example) and put immense energy into their songs live.
    That being said, I'll reiterate that I must see them next time they come to the states. I don't care if I miss two days of school and my mother tags along (oof); it's Muse, the rest is unimportant.

    Maybe Matt has perfect pitch or something. Wouldn't be surprised. I do, and I can drop the E to D in two or three seconds. Plus, Matt's had all the practice.
    But Drop-B? That's... really really low. Maybe the original used a seven-string guitar, because Drop-B just seems like a weird workaround for that.

    Most of the tabs I've read list Map of the Problematique as Drop-C, though, while on the topic of songs with low tuning.
    I can switch from E to D pretty quick, but I'm a bit OCD when it comes to tuning (I had a bad on-stage experience once... don't ask) so I have to get it just right. If I'm just practicing, though, I'd say I can do it pretty fast.

    Anyone else have Muse Ringtones? Mine is the solo from Invincible (the H.A.A.R.P. version).
    I've also got the intro to Supermassive Black Hole, the part where the guitar comes in on Knights fo Cydonia, and teh end of the bridge in Knights (no one's gonna take me aliiiive!!!). As part of my nerdiness, I've also got the victory music from Final Fantasy as my text message sound (ala FF Advent Children).

    P.S. I think the crowd sing-alongs would be awesome on the following, if they ever made it into the game:

    New Born
    Knights of Cydonia
    Time is Running Out
    Hysteria (this may actually happen)
    Stockholm Syndrome
    And so on.

    For proof just watch HAARP.
    AMEN! That list is spot on. I can't imagine Knights without the crowd singing along at the bridge.

    The H.A.A.R.P. CD version of Time Is Running Out has probably the most amazing crowd participation I have ever heard. They were almost as loud as Matt was, even amplified to be loud enough for all of Wembley to hear him.

    Amazing stuff. People sing along for almost all of the HAARP DVD.
    That's how it was when they played in Seattle too. Matt cut out right before the first chorus of Time is Running Out and the crowd sung it perfectly. Surprisingly in tune too!

    Nothing like letting the crowd do your job for you.

    I'm watching HAARP, and just now Muse played Invincible. Now, I've watched HAARP before and we've discussed this before, but, the solo is just so amazing and beautiful :)


    On the issue of crowd singalongs. Has any DLC song had crowd singalongs? Isn't it just claps and cheers? I understand that there is a chance that Hysteria will have it because it's on the disc for the EU release.

    There aren't any crowd singalongs in the DLC, but like you said there's a chance since it's on the European disc. Besides, who wouldn't want to sing along to:

    I want it now, I want it now
    Give me your heart and soul

    I just found something out: apparently in 2003 Celine Dion wanted to use the name "Muse" for one of her US tour. Muse, who had the worldwide rights to the name, said no, because they hadn't been "discovered" in the US yet, and when they went over there they didn't want to be thought of as a Celine Dion backing band. So they threatened her with a lawsuit and basically kicked her ass.

    I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't want to have anything to do with Celine Dion, much less share a name with her.

    There have been a fair amount of up-and-coming bands called Muse that had to change thier names, as well as tour stuff like this. At least before they "Broke America".

    The Rocket Baby Dolls have really come a long way. If you say Muse now, everyone knows who you are talking about (or should anyway).

    Yeah, the Rocket Baby Dolls have changed a lot in 15 years or so.

    I may have to move to London, just for the music. Not too many amazing bands springing up around here.

    Yeah, I think the best music around came from the British Isles. I'm sure lots of others agree.

    Coldplay - UK
    Franz Ferdinand - UK
    U2 - UK
    Arctic Monkeys - UK
    Bloc Party - UK
    The Cure - UK
    The Killers - USA (But signed by a British Label)

    Quite a trend there.

    Well, technically U2 is from Ireland. Which isn't in the UK. I don't think I could rank my favorite bands. But the majority of them are definitely from the UK. Radiohead, Muse, Bloc Party, Oasis, Coldplay, the Rolling Stones, and so on.

    Either way, far too much good music has to make a trans-atlantic trip.

    I just got back from buying H.A.A.R.P., and I'm about to watch it.

    Hopefully it's as good as I expect.

    I had pretty high expectations, and it exceeded them. Enjoy!

    I watched it twice the day I got mine. And about 5 times since. And bits of it pretty much constantly. Well worth the money.

    Well, everything Muse I have ever purchased has been worth the money.

    Yeah HAARP is pretty awesome. I wish I didn't live in an apartment so I could crank up the volume!

    p.s. this post ties us with the most replied to thread in the Ultimate Setlist section ^_^ I know it's been due in large part to to the 6 (or so) of us that have been talking about Muse back and forth but still.

    Also, I decided that I want 3 packs for Muse:

    Origin Of Symmetry Pack
    New Born
    Bliss
    Plug In baby

    Absolution Pack
    Hysteria
    Stockholm Syndrome
    Time Is Running Out

    Black Holes & Revelations Pack

    Map of the Problematique
    Exo-Politics
    Knights of Cydonia
