Showbiz has never charted. It was released on Maverick Records in 1999 and has sold about 100k copies to date.

*This album was never released in the USA during 2001-2003 reportedly because record company execs thought Mr. Bellamy's falsetto on some of the tracks was not considered commercial. It was released in 2005 after the success of Absolution and finally charted in 2010 after the success of their album The Resistance.

Thanks for posting this--I looked these same chart stats up on the Billboard site and it's really interesting to see how Muse has done on the American charts.

Poor Showbiz. One of my favorite Muse albums. :(

CarrieB 27-05-2010 06:01 PM

Thank you. They've done really well! :D

rufygirl 27-05-2010 06:03 PM

thanks for the info. :)

Thanks for this :) To clarify: this chart is solely based on selected stations' airplay? I mean, it doesn't count actual sales/downloads? In any case, WMG clearly did a fantastic job promoting these singles for the radio stations.

Well to be fair I'm pretty sure it was never released over there, at least at the time. Muse hadn't had a big enough hit over here yet.

Very cool to see. I know the whole Twilight issue divides a lot of Musers, but I'm just happy that the band is seeing upward movement in the charts. :D

Thanks for this.
Poor Absolution. Muse's best album, and the worst in the US. :(

fizzers 28-05-2010 04:24 AM

Pretty interesting. I hate to see my favorite album (OoS) at such a low ranking. :(
I hate America's taste in music. I wish I lived in France!
Wait... Nvm, here I get to see all my favorite bands in smaller venues. :happy:

NSC debut's at 22? Thats actually kinda dismal compared to what I thought it would be at.

chudenk 28-05-2010 08:39 AM

Uprising peaked at #14 on adult pop songs.

Yes, in my chart ranking posted above the Muse singles released in the USA were ranked based on radio airplay at alternative/modern rock stations such as KROQ in Los Angeles and not on downloads or other sales.

"Uprising" peaked at No 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA. This chart combines radio airplay from all station formats/genres and also includes singles.sales such as downloads from iTunes as well as physical units sold.

"Uprising" debuted at No. 9 on the official UK singles chart while NSC debuted at No. 11 two weeks ago. I believe at least six other singles from prior Muse albums have charted in the Top Ten on the UK singles chart.

Also, I think Muse have now sold close to 11 million albums worldwide since 1999 as well as several million singles and digital downloads. Breakdown of estimated total global album sales follow below:

TR 2.6 million

BH&R 3 million

HAARP 700k

Absolution 2.5 million

OoS 1.5 million

Hullabaloo 500k

Showbiz 500k

:supersad: 107??? This is a freaking disgrace! Muse's best album and it only reached 107 in the States? :fear:

:noey: Must move to Europe now.

OoS was released in the US in 2005.
