I haven't really been into Muse since 2006's Black Holes and Revelations. It was a decent album -- nowhere near as brilliant as Absolution but a hell of a lot less insufferable than pretty much everything that's come after it. I blame the succubine influence of Kate Hudson, who, according to Almost Famous, was supposed to improve a band's music, not make it worse.
Anyway, I have to admit that the new Muse single, if nothing else, breaks their recent trend of releasing thoroughly irritating -- or, in the case of their song for the London Olympics, unimaginably awful -- music.
Here's the brand new video for Madness.
