Why does everyone like Showbiz?

Now, in all the votes, and polls on the forum, Showbiz (the song) is hailed as one of Muse's greatest songs. However, in my opinion, it's one of there worst, alongside Sober. I'm gunna get pelters for this, but I just can't see why everyone likes it.......

It's not my favourite song, I'll admit, but I still really like it. I find it quite powerful, especially in the build up throughout the song and I like the bassline.

Just out of interest, what makes you feel it's one of their worst?

It's a brilliant and powerful song and sounds like the band actually fucking mean it.

They have some weaker songs yes, but I don't think Showbiz is one of them. Even thier weaker songs are fantastic and to be honest, I'd take almost any Muse song over any of my other favourite songs.

I love the build up in emotion in the song. You can actually sense Matt getting more and more angry at someone and then eventually losing it.

It's got an amazing buildup, and it just seems really powerful

it's my second favourite on the album behind Cave

It's a great song to play if you need to address frustration.

Like everyone's been saying, it's the huge build up that culminates in an awesome guitar dispaly and then Matt blasts the top of his falsetto on top of it all. Brilliant song.

well for one if everyone likes the song maybe you should be asking yourself why you don't like it.


And second, I think its a brilliant song because it is composed of only a few lyrics and the build up is amazing. So simple, yet so excellent.

Yeah but if anyone made a "Why does everyone like USoE" for example, then it would be OK.

I agree with the OP, it's damn overrated, best from the album, but then there isn't massive competition.
