Mate, I'm relatively new too, but look at my age; I'm old enough to be your mother I've known about Muse for YEARS but for various reasons I lost the faith after Absolution and just saw the light again with Drones. So I've got like over a decade of catching up to do. What those idiots have said about you could easily apply to me!

Except for maybe, and I'm not even sure, seeing them supporting Feeder in Manchester in 1999, I've never seen them live. I own just three albums but I didn't even know about two of them until I started sorting out the CD collection over the Christmas holidays! Until relatively recently I wasn't 100% sure whether Dom or Chris was the drummer and other stuff like that So I've basically never seen them, have practically no stuff by them, wouldn't know two of them if I fell over them in the street* and even I at my advanced time of life was a bit nervous of dipping my toe into a forum made up of die-hard "pwoper" (I know that one) fans.

They've not chucked me out yet even though I made a really embarrassing mistake in the misheard lyrics thread

Please don't pay any mind to these creatures that have mocked you. I do not understand the mocking of fellow fans of "your" band who are only just discovering their music. I follow Instagram accounts of teenagers who are just getting into Queen, which I think is amazing. I've been a fan of Queen's for as long as I can remember - but I wasn't even born when Bohemian Rhapsody came out, and these people weren't even born when Freddie died. So what? Music is for everyone. Matt, Dom and Chris didn't make their music just for some people; there are no labels saying oh by the way you can't listen to this until you've heard every B side we've ever recorded.

YouTube commenters are also the Worst Thing Ever.

It's something about "genuine fans" being there "ever since the beginning" and "knowing all the songs down to the T" and "owning everything they've ever done in physical form." If you ask me, they're just really insecure and looking to remedy that by lording themselves over new/casual fans.
And she's very right. It's the "I liked them before they were famous" syndrome. Some people will go off a band when they become commercially and/or critically successful because...well, I have no idea. They want to be different and special, I suppose. I never could understand it.

As for your depression/mental health issues - I'm there too. It sucks MASSIVELY. Hang on in there. The voice that tells you you're not good enough, not whatever enough, is a big fat liar and it can go screw itself, because you are. I struggle constantly with people's opinions of me, and trying to please everyone. and my friend once pointed out that I'll believe people when they say I'm a twat or whatever, but I never believe people when they say I'm great. Why do I only believe the negative stuff? I don't know. But I understand how it feels, I really do. Big hugs to you, fellow Muser.

Hey I just wrote an essay heh

*does not apply to my little Matt, who I've had a crush on FOREVER whoops

OMG your story is so similar to mine it is scary!

I owned OOS and Absolution, but then lost contact with them until shortly before Drones was released, rediscovered them with 2nd law, beginning of 2015. Never been to a concert. i am 39.

Now I own all of their albums, some DVDs and will see them live in May in Vienna.

Ohoh...conspiracy theory

I'm old enough to be YOUR mother and I only became a fan three years ago. My kids saw them before I did. My husband went with me to see them last year and my son will go with me this year.
