Muse is among my top favorite band. I edited already 2 videos to illustrate my way two of their songs : Undisclosed desires and Resistance. Undisclosed desires was supporting an Urban vision of a gay approach of day-to-day life situation (Click here to see more) and Resistance was edited with a mix of Mange (Yaoi) and actual pictures (Click here to see more)

Uprising is the third song I would like to share with you. It was made to celebrate a fight against the establishment during the London G20 summit, as explained below by Matt Bellamy, the band leader.  I found out that the wording could also apply to fight against homophobia and to defend certain gay rights not yet recognized.

Muse are an English Alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon.

Since their inception in 1994, the band has comprised of Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion, synthesizers).

Muse, the band

The name “Muse” was inspired by Matt Bellamy’s art teacher. The art teacher Samuel Theoun mentioned the word “Muses”. Matt then looked it up in the dictionary and decided to shorten it to “Muse.” Also, because it was short and the members felt it looked good on a poster.

After the release of the album Black Holes and Revelations, Morgan Nicholls (keyboards, percussion, bass guitar) has performed live with the band.

Muse have revealed exclusively to MTV News the meaning behind their latest single Uprising.
Lead singer Matt Bellamy explained:

The lead single, ‘Uprising’, was kind of inspired by the G20 protests which took place last year. I was in London at the time and I saw it all going on outside where I live.”

He added: “I sort of found that whole protest quite inspiring really; just the idea that people just having a good time, putting together a peaceful protest but the police still do their best to make it become violent and I find that quite aggravating. So, that’s what the song’s about.”

The Muse front-man went on to explain further: “There was a whole economic crisis and the MP scandal which took place last year where everyone felt like they were being ripped off by the powers that be.”

“I sort of wanted to write a song that summed up that feeling like you’ve been done over by people you’re supposed to trust. That’s kind of where the song’s coming from really.”

The band, who are currently sitting pretty at the top of the UK album chart with new LP, The Resistance also shed some light on what we can expect from their fifth studio album.


The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around

(So come on!)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

(So come on!)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
We should never be afraid to die

(So come on!)

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
