Hey, so I arranged a Jazz cover of the song Hysteria by Muse, but am having trouble contacting them to authorize the cover so we can play it in our jazz band. Anyone know how I can try to contact them? I tried messaging their MySpace to no avail...

arent covers by an amateur band alright? failing that contact their manager/managing team, not their myspace

unless you are putting that song on an album and then selling it you dont need their authorization. Buskers dont get the authorization for each cover they play

Yeah, our director refuses to let us play it unless we get authorizes in fear of Copyright junk
