The ending riff from Knights of Cydonia has to be in there, as does New Born

Dead Star would have got my vote...

This sig was too fucking big. Make it smaller next time, chief.

the limit is 10 options, you think i could fit them all in? and i agree, i should have added them
#10
Plug In Baby, Bliss, Dead Star, Microcuts, Citizen Erased, New Born. So many great riffs.

I'll go for PiB though.
#11
New Born for me, although there are so many fantastic others, Plug in Baby and Hysteria especially.
#13
ending of knights of cydonia maybe. i went for citizen erased, one of my favourite muse songs form back in the day.
#14
ASSASIN MUCH? I picked supermassive black hole because of its dancability and funness and map of problematique comes close. Assasin ****ing gets me pumped because of that riff! Didnt they use it in the superbowl or was it like another playoff football game?

My favorite is Supermassiveblackhole. But I haven't heard much, I just love that riff.


Really? I think it's crap. It sounds like a cross between something Radiohead would write, and then never speak of again, and that stupid Britney Spears song.

Eugh. Plug In Baby is my favourite on the poll. Though I think New Born and Cave are better.

EDIT: Oh, New Born is there. Didn't see that. Good job I haven't voted yet.

And you're obviously here because you fancy Phill.
Phill is a very attractive guy...

The Knights of Cydonia rif is the most epic Muse riff ever!

DUUUUUUUUDE.


Where's Falling Away With You, DAMMIT?!?!


That is by far Muse's best riff.


Additionally, the climactic riff that ends Microcuts (every bit as deserving of recognition as KoC!!!), the Groove, Fillip (so catchy OMG!), and...

Maybe, but it didn't give me The Chills (actually deserving of both italics and capitals) like Citizen Erased did. That song defines "epic".
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Yeah. Citizen Erased owns. When I saw them at Wembley, about 10% of the people there new that song. Nearly everyone else had just picked them up. There was a great sense of unity

And Epic by Faith No More, also kind of defines 'epic'

hey, im the only one who voted for showbiz

you all suck now

It's really epic, but I wouldn't say it defines it. And yes, I get The Chills when I hear that song as well.
