Muse Goes Dubstep With “Unsustainable”


This has to stop. Muse‘s dramatic, over-the-top rock music is already so close to being “too much,” but it always came so close to that line while still maintaining enough integrity to be taken—for the most part—seriously. Then they did this.

Unless this is somehow a clever stab at the “unsustainable” nature of trends in music, it appears that Muse has jumped on the dubstep bandwagon and gone full-blown womp-womp. Somewhere in the world, Skrillex is fist-pumping and planning a collaboration.

    From what I’ve heard, Muse created this track to see if they could make the same sounds electronic producers do with a computer on their own live instruments, not because they’re full-blown dubstep fiends.

    Also, they are British and probably have been around the dubstep sounds for far longer than any of us US hipsters would like to believe.

    HOLY CRAP, I need this new album!! I welcome Muse’s “over-the-top” sound to blow my mind. They are never “too much” to me. … But, why does Matt look like Chris Hardwick in that picture up there? haha

    Badger, dubstep used to be nothing like it is today, was not very popular in clubs or that scene because it was hard and not fun to dance to. Muse is a rock band jumping OJ the bandwagon. And if they have liked it for so long like you suggest, why wait until after even fucking korn made a rockdubstep album.
