Sometimes over-indulgent, sometimes funny, sometimes unintentionally funny, over-dramatic and weird. And the video is the same.
i agree with that...i think its a great video for that song...so much so i couldn't picture any other kind of video for it!

I never liked it. I dunno why, but I just imagined something else.

I bought the KoC DVD, but I doubt I'll watch the video...

Cool Anybody seeing parallels with Queen?

Hi, just new to this board and having seen the video and listened to the song Knights of Cydonia by Muse I've gotta say I hear something Queen-like.

Don't get me wrong, I find the song very cool but it reminds me of Queen when they we're just starting off. Like the song 'March Of The Black Queen' or something like 'Ogre Battle' from the self named album Queen. It's like Muse's lyrics are about space and beyond, and Queen's lyrics are more about fantasy, sounds very experimental. I hope Muse doesn't end up with a dead singer though, trying to replace it with some inferior lead-man

Anyhow they're doing their own thing and I'm like it as is everybody else I know!

p.s.

Nobody knows Queen anymore probably, definitely not the early days I guess?

The yjust played KoC on kerrang...only it's an awful cut down version, beginning sounds so poo without it all beign there. Riff at the end is also cut poo. Nice that it's on the radio but the cut down ruins it.

Nope. I love the video. Muse have proven that they can make serious videos, just because they make one that's a bit tongue in cheek it doesn't mean that they're suddenly a comedy bands.

Would you rather they made another "Uno?" (The first version.)

Meh, I think it's fun. Pretty much how I imagined it though, I still see it as quite a powerful song, but the beginning with the horses galloping has always made me do a kind of 'ride the horsey' bounce when I hear it. Hence purchasing the hobby horse I get to prance like a little girl!
