TakeABow;540668 said:The special edition boxes (limited to 1000 copies in the US) were all region 2 (UK, Japan, France, Germany) coded, so US DVD players couldn't play them. They had the replacement DVD with the correct region code in the mail before I called to ask what was up.
Alright_Computer;540697 said:That's nice of them. I guess they just wanted to spread the HAARP around.I wonder how many special edition boxes there were in the UK, since they're a lot more popular there.
TakeABow;540716 said:Warner wants Muse fans to be happy, and they pushed HAARP into lots of record stores. I expect that the next time Muse tours over here, it will be thier own tour, with lots of other bands clamoring to open for them. *Imagines an Interpol/Muse Tour* If only...I bet Helium3 put out plenty of the special HAARP DVD over there. Probably a limited time deal instead of a limited number.
Alright_Computer;540726 said:That tour would be awesome. I would go.
Alright_Computer;540761 said:That would be really fun to do. Especially if they had different setlists/props onstage for each show, which I bet they do. I'm praying for a big US tour now...
Alright_Computer;540776 said:Yeah, HAARP was way different than the one I saw. (I saw the Chicago show back in July '08) Maybe that was because back then, the songs were newer. I mean, BH&R was released only 2 weeks earlier. Oh well.
Alright_Computer;540797 said:Oops... I got this year mixed up with 2 years ago... I'll edit it now.I got the Back to the Future reference
TakeABow;540803 said:You gotta respect the flux capacitor. I still believe that thier July '08 show "was" amazing.
Alright_Computer;540813 said:Yeah, it really sucked that Matt wasn't in it, though :eek:Oh, I wasn't supposed to say that part yet...
Alec;540830 said:I love Muse!
Alright_Computer;540834 said:Well, you could always change the future... maybe having a tuna salad sandwich instead of an egg salad sandwich prevents Matt from leaving the band.
TakeABow;540843 said:I will second-guess everything I do now...
Alright_Computer;540850 said:I'm never eating egg salad again. And that's not because I don't like it. Even though I don't.
Alright_Computer;540896 said:Yes, that H.A.A.R.P. experiment is bad news. I also agree that Muse would be something else entirely without Matt. It's just not possible. No one in rock today can top his solos.
Alright_Computer;541013 said:Exactly. I suck at singing (No hard vocals for me ), I'm alright at guitar, and good at the piano. But nowhere close on any level to Bellamy. The least I can do is jam along to his songs, if RB would release them already... and not just Hysteria.
TakeABow;541034 said:I'm going to get a guitar shortly, and hopefully after a few months I will be able to play a few Muse riffs. Maybe even a solo or two.
Asphyx1ateD;537948 said:Assassin would be an amazing choice for Rock Band, and especially the Grand Omega Bosses Edit version of it (the b-side to Knights Of Cydonia).However, I think they made a very good choice in Hysteria, as it does have a very good bassline and what I find is the bassist does get stuck with pretty boring lines in a lot of songs.Stockholm Syndrome would also be a good choice, especially drum-wise. The opening Plug In Baby guitar riff would be a beauty to play. Time Is Running Out would also be a great song overall. Bliss, my favourite song of Muse, would also work well.Easily, though, would no doubt be the perfect Muse song for Rock Band. It's only a b-side though (to Starlight) and thus isn't very well known. Its bassline is amazing though and it's very Bliss-like.
No really, I don't know anyone that's heard Muse and not liked them.

May I put in my two cents?The Groove has some little flips that I would never have gotten when I got my first guitar (then again, I didn't even know who Muse was back then. I was 12, give me a break.). The main riff would probably be pretty easy, but fully learning the song would be rather difficult. Exo-Politics would probably be a better starting point, if you must start with Muse. (As far as Muse songs go, The Groove would be right after, but you'll probably want to throw some non-Muse stuff in your guitar-learning escapades, because most Muse is on the difficult side.)Also, Guitar Center has probably got what you're looking for. (And as far as I know, they're all over Texas.) I know the one I go to is generally very helpful; I didn't actually buy my guitar from there, but one of the employees both recommended me my Ibanez Mikro (yeah, I have tiny hands.) and pointed me to the last white one in Texas.
