Ditto. Definitely in my top 3, if not my fave song of Muse. Perfect finale for OoS. I'm getting a Megalomania lyric tattooed on my ankle when I'm older.

You mean that people who listen Madness and Resistance in the place of Megalomania and Exogenesis? I pretend they don't exist.

I love the lyrics and Matt's powerful vocals in the chorus. It certainly is a perfect ending for OOS

That's what I felt a few years ago when I first got into them. I've now discovered so many much better bands.

Define better? Better for you or better for him? It's all down to taste...

He obviously means better for himself, it's so hip and fashionable to place Muse lower and lower on your list of personal favorites on the Muse board.

Brilliant, brilliant song. My second favorite OOS song after "Citizen Erased". Just fucking love the epic music and lyrics, but what do you think "Take off your disguise, I know that underneath it's me" means? The rest of the lyrics have a strong "anti-religious" feel to it.

Well, well, why not leave a message of appreciation, huh.
I love you, Megalomania, and I wish the band did too, just as much as I do. 3rd best OoS song.

I always related it to what he's said regarding psychic powers and all that... essentially, no higher powers/spirits/etc exist, but it's just all extensions of our sub-conscious mind, which we can't truly tap into.

So, I always took it to mean anything we attributed to a god was just a reflection of ourselves, and maybe in his case, WANTING there to be something to attribute/blame the world on... but knowing it's hopeless (or maybe we're to blame for our own problems, and life is infact meaningless.)

Plus, he's said the song is based on wanted to find religion and not being able to, and on asking a fictional god what the point of life and proliferation was (with a life being negative sort of flare.)

And, of course, relationship issues.

I think I understand that line more now. "Take off your disguise, I know that underneath it's me", he was referring to God. Matt's saying he himself is God. "Take off your disguise", is him telling "God" to give it up with the charade. "I know that underneath, it's me", because he knows that there is no God, or rather, in the end, we are each our own God, and we are fully responsible for what happens in our life.

According to the Muse Wiki, "the earliest known performance [of Megalomania] used a grand piano rather than an organ or keyboard with organ effect. A video can be found of this performance on the DC Muse Hub." Could someone verify if this is really true or not and if so link me to the video or audio file?

It's true. Here is the link to the download.

Oooh thank you very much! I can't believe I didn't even know this existed until today. I love how casual Matt is about choosing to play Megalomania when the radio host asks them for another song. I highly doubt something like that would happen if they were on a radio show today.
