Muse Fans Name 'Knights of Cydonia' the Band's Best Ever Single

Muse fans have voted the band's 2006 single, "Knights of Cydonia," the best release by the Westcountry three-piece in their 20 year career, Gigwise reports.

Fans have voted in their thousands this week in a Gigwise poll to pick the best Muse single of all time, and the "Black Holes & Revelations" single narrowly placed above earlier releases "Hysteria" and "Plug in Baby" to take the top spot. It was a tight-run race with the top three switching places contstantly. Votes were tied for second place between these two singles.

Placing fourth was the band's 2003 single, "Time Is Running Out" and "New Born," both of which shared third place in the poll. The poll is now closed, but you can see how votes were cast below.

"Knights of Cydonia" was the third single to be taken from "Black Holes & Revelations," reaching No.10 in the UK singles charts when it was released on 27 November, 2006. The inspirational track has proven a fan favourite ever since its release, thanks in part to its themes of determination and defiance, which have rung true with the devoted Muse fanbase.

Proving less popular with Muse fans and Gigwise readers, the band's 2010 single, "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)" was voted readers least favourite release. The stand-alone track was taken from the movie soundtrack to the "Twilight Saga: Eclipse."

Also placing poorly were early tracks "Cave" and "Uno," which were second and third least favourites with and more recent releases, "Follow Me" and "Madness." See the five most, and least, popular Muse singles below.
