Because you're missing out. But, eh, you're right. To each his own.

I've listened to it quite a few times in the hope it would grow on me but it's no good. It's a really poor song. And what's all that clicking business? Sounds like a badly scratched vinyl record. I'd say a cracked 78 but you're all too young to know what that means!
I don't think Muse are imitating Queen. The guitar in the first half (about 3 minutes in) does sound Queen-ish and the choral stuff but there's plenty more that is different. The guitar from 4.00 in the below clip is more Muse, I think. It's pretty amazing. Also, I love the way Matt sings 'I'm gonna win' at 2.26. Not Freddie-like at all

Similar vocals perhaps but Apart from that I see no comparison. They are 2 completely different bands.

Queen, rubbish?
Would you prefer Matt to be influenced by the Spice Girls? It would manage the feat of at least please some of the reviewers in the press

Wouldn't be the first time he took influence by them, and the solos reminded me of Malakian since the first listen.

100% sure these will show up at some point in youtube. Fan-made, just like those creepy 'vocals + bass' (etc) versions of Resistance songs.

Interesting what hatred you got from saying Queen is rubbish. I have to admit I don't get their genious either. Never been a fan, but I spent now a couple of hours listening through some songs, and I still don't get the genious. I wouldn't call them rubbish, though. I do like the few 70ies hits. Btw their fans must have been devastated by the change of sound in 80ies Muse are extremely faithful to their early sound compared to Queen.

Tbh I also don't quite understand why you say Muse are imitating Queen. Sure there are influences but Survival does not sound like Queen imo. Which parts in your opinion make it sound like Queen? The choir?

Just a general side note: I don't get why people have to express their opinions of music in terms of either rubbish/sucks/shit, or epic/masterpiece/genious. Most of the music is imo fairly good or somewhat poorer, there's no need to use superlatives all the time.
