Tbh I can't remember a time when Muse weren't polarising. BH&R was probably their peak in terms of critical acclaim. I remember there was a video on youtube about the 2005 NME awards. There was a panel discussing the various bands, and for the most part they had nothing nice to say about Muse. Funnily enough Russell Brand was the only one to really like them and predicted they were on their way to being very successful.

I think a lot of people listen to their songs and see the way they're marketed and think they take themselves way more seriously than they actually do.

Actually, now that I think about it, weren't even their first albums hated because people (read: idiots) thought they were a ripoff of Radiohead?

The Radiohead comparisons weren't unjustified for Showbiz tbf.

Well, okay, but the fact that there is a large group of people who still believe that Muse is a Radiohead ripoff makes me lose some hope for the world.

Is there a large group though? I think I only ever see it pop up as a meme at this point and, even then, it's not a common thing.

There might still be a slight rivalry thing between fans (I remember my optician joking with me about it back in like 2010/11) but I don't think many people think Muse still actively sound like Radiohead.

I do recall some people calling Muse a shit Radiohead when Plug in Baby came on at a student party about 3 years ago. Not that I cared that much given I was humming along the riff at the time.
