Only if the thought is "God, I wish Muse were half the band that Depeche Mode are".

FINALLY found a muse thread! I am most defintely one of the biggest Muse fans in Texas. We musers are very crazy (just for the record). I actually was there at the ACL concert. It was amazing. Seen them twice, and you know nothing of Muse until you have seen them live. You might think they're overrated, but until you've been to one of their concerts you have absolutely no idea.
Oh yeah, and my good friend Gerry has some WONDERFUl muse pics and videos. He's also met them a couple of times. (I'm am SUPER jealous)
Here's his flicker:

My dad says the exact same thing about Muse all the time... I really do like Muse and he's like "they're not something I listen to frequently but they are insanely talented and you will never ever be able to fully appreciate the greatness of their music till you see them live, it's so freaking apparent and mind blowing." Needless to say I really hope to see Muse someday..

Those photos are so great!!!  After waiting for many years, I will finally be able to see them at Lollapalooza and the mere thought of it makes me want to vomit and dance like a spazz all at the same time.

And I mean vomit in a good, excited way.

So it's official? I mean there's been ALOT of rumors and I was really hoping... LOLLA!!! yay! There's been lots of discussion on the Muse forum but I wasn't sure the gig was still on (ya' know with Kate Hudson being preggers and all).
I was still pretty sure it was still on, but I wasn't sure because times are changing over in Muse-land.

I sure hope the rumours are true. Seeing them for the third time would be mind blowing. And with people I love? Even better. They're spectacular live.

Seen them twice, and you know nothing of Muse until you have seen them live. You might think they're overrated, but until you've been to one of their concerts you have absolutely no idea.

Arrogant much? If I'm already ambivalent about their music, the fact that they play it well live won't make me suddenly think "OMG how wrong was I?!?". I might think they are a better live act than album band, but it doesn't mean I'll suddenly think they aren't overrated or that my opinion doesn't count (especially when their sets are often broadcast from festivals, they've released live DVDs/CDs. It's not like the only footage of them available is if you are physically there.

As for the thing about bands playing music before a show and whether they choose it themselves - simple answer is that it varies. Sometimes bands will say they want specific music played, other times they will employ a DJ to do it, and sometimes it is left completely up to the venue itself.

Although I've been criticising them, I do approve of their decision to play the entirety of Origin Of Symmetry at Leeds/Reading this weekend.

Your wit kills me (regarding the Depeche mode comparison). Also, that comment above makes me think of the Radiohead fan video. "No, you don't understand. Muse are the very best. I will tie you up to a chair and make you listen to their entire catalogue. I will kill you and stuff your corpse with a stereo, so your body will sing out Matt Bellamy, etc." 
I have no idea why I was compelled to go to this thread, but I do have to admit that Absolution is still a pretty solid album. Hysteria is one of those tracks that I cannot skip when it comes on shuffle. I often deny that I have any sort of affiliations with the Muse fanbase because it's like admitting that I have a soft spot for Chris Martin's songwriting...I will never live it down.

So Muse's new album is coming out this September and they just released a trailer for it.  It's going to be called "The 2nd Law" apparently.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/IqFZGnfMLMw?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/IqFZGnfMLMw?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

The ending definitely threw me, lol
