"We were all off our faces on mushrooms when we recorded Plug In Baby... There was this big field next to the recording studio filled with them. So we ate them all. I don't know what we were doing, but we all ended up naked in a jacuzzi and I went deaf in one ear from falling asleep in the sauna... " - Matt

Band Name Origins:

  • As teenagers they went through lots of band names that were verging on the ridiculous. After hanging around with a local tramp/'musician' who noted a strange surge in the creativity of their hometown's youth ("like a muse passing through the town"), they decided to settle on Muse. (Sourced from various interviews with the band.) Submitted by: Anamaria
  • The real reason: Matt Bellamy said in an interview that when thinking up a new name for Rocket Baby Dolls, he was studying the seven muses at university. Submitted by: Liamy T.

Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics:

Song Name
Comments & Submitter Name
"Bliss"The lyric is "Give me all the peace and joy in your mind, I want the peace and joy in your mind, give me the peace and joy in your mind" Why the title isn't "Peace" instead of "Bliss"? - Nurul
"Uno"I thought it was a song with Spanish language, but it's not. The lyric is "You could've been number one". Why the title isn't "One" instead of "Uno" if it doesn't contain any word in Spanish language? - Nurul
"Hyper Music"The most famous lyric is "You know that I don't want you and I never did, I don't love you and I never will" - Nurul
"Muscle Museum""I don't want you to adore me, don't want you to ignore me, when it pleases you" I thought the title was "Ignore" but when I searched for the title I only found Paramore song - Nurul
"Sunburn"Chorus : She burns like the sun, and I can't look away, and she'll burn our horizon make no mistake - Nurul

Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Time Is Running Out"
Misheard Lyrics:
Now that you know I'm trapped since ovulation
Original Lyrics:
Now that you know I'm trapped, sense of elation

Story about this misheard lyric by: Amelia

I felt really emotional every time I heard this song thinking it was a really heavy intense song about abortion from the point of view of the fetus. That one misheard line makes the whole rest of the song totally fit with that idea. I've finally just looked it up and realized it has nothing to do with abortion. Was thinking it was a pretty heavy topic to become a number 1 hit!
This is the song with my misheard lyric: (TRIGGER WARNING - SENSITIVE SUBJECT)
I think I'm drowning
Asphyxiated
I want to break the spell
That you've created
You're something beautiful
A contradiction
I want to play the game
I want the friction
You will be
The death of me
Yeah, you will be
The death of me
Bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it
Our time is running out
And our time is running out
You can't push it underground
We can't stop it screaming out
I wanted freedom
But I'm restricted
I tried to give you up
But I'm addicted
Now that you know I'm trapped
Since ovulation
You'll never dream of breaking this fixation
You will squeeze the life out of me
Bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it
Our time is running out
And our time is running out
You can't push it underground
We can't stop it screaming out
How did it come to this
You will suck the life out of me

How did it come to this?

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"New Born "
The Funny Lyrics:
Link it to the world Link it to yourself Stretch it like a birth squeeze
Why They're Funny:
Well after not really having a clue what he's talking about in the first place you then come to the funny bit. If Matt Bellamy is a man why does he sound like hes singing from experience of having stretched it like a birth squeeze. Does he have a secret he's hiding?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Time Is Running Out"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I think I'm drowning.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Oh come on now. If you can't decide whether you're drowning or not, then you must not be drowning at all.
Submitted by: Smellma Pitz
"Plug In Baby"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And my Plug In Baby crucifies my enemies
When I'm tired of giving, woooooo
Why They're Nonsensical:
I love this band and I think they're great and amazingly talented, and all...but come on. Hardly any Muse lyrics ever make sense though, so I guess this is good for them. They did also have 'And you're the only reason that I remain unfrozen' (kinda dodgy), and a hell of a lot of other strange stuff...plus Matt does a lot of wailing. That sounds cool, but when you write the lyrics down...it just looks really bad.
