Radiohead vs. Muse

Which band do you like the better, and why?

Radiohead. I'd list the reasons why but that would involve disparaging Muse. They're probably the one band everybody loves on this board that I actively dislike but I'd rather not start any fights.

Except if there's going to be table throwing, I'm game for that.

List all the reasons. If people get aggressive, we'll just ignore them.

Radiohead! ..even though I've heard very little of Muse and virtually nothing from the new album.

I like Muse a lot (although honestly I consider them a bit of a guilty pleasure) but IMO they aren't even in the same league as Radiohead. I can get tired of Muse's testosterone-fueled over-the-top show offy prog rock even though, as I said, I like them and I'd love to see them live. But Radiohead move me on so many levels; they have more depth, the music and lyrics are more interesting to me, and I just connect with them more. Muse are fun but I don't necessarily take them all that seriously.

Muse. They are great live.

I've never really liked Radiohead.

I don't think they are the same. Besides maybe a weensy bit of similarity in singing style I don't see much comparison.

x infinity.


To be fair, I've only heard Black Holes and Revelations from Muse, and that was just a few listens. Maybe I owe them another shot on my mp3 player while I'm walking outside--the ultimate proving ground for music that I end up liking.

From what I have heard, there's a heavy and undeniable Radiohead influence on the band, especially with the vocals. The rest comes across a bit like Queen mixed with Nirvana; amazing harmonies, but a real harshness, as well.

Dare I say it, but maybe Radiohead have more heart?

Two of my favourite bands.

Have to choose between them? Muse.

Radiohead.

Muse get too prog-ish sometimes.

Plus they didn't write The Bends or OK Computer and Radiohead did.
