Weak trolling.

I think Muse did mention being inspired by Skrillex, who is the Brostep posterboy after all.

We're talking specifically about Isolated System though, which only connection to brostep is that it has bass.

The connection is they were trying to replicate Brostep 'bass' with guitars, that's all. The idea they are Brostep or Dubstep is as daft as saying RATM is Hip Hop because Morello created sounds similar to scratching with a guitar. But in either case it was certainly an influence.

Yes, in Unsustainable. Not Isolated System.

Ah this is confusing. (I must admit I've only ever listened to the album through once)

And wait, what? How would anyone think Isolated System has anything to do with Dubstep!?

It was funnier when 'purists' would refer to it as mid-range cack. But Brostep is still subtly derogatory.

Sure, "Brostep" sounds a little dumb, but I think the distinction between an artist like Distance and one like Skrillex is important to make.

And to bring the topic back to Muse. I'd say Isolated System reminds me more of Distance, and Unsustainable sounds more like Skrillex.

Isolated System sounds nothing like Distance or Dubstep. Couldn't be any further away from it if it tried. If you want to define it as a genre, probably closest to Post-Rock, with the slowed down Motorik beat, use of strings and electronics, being a somewhat ambient track, use of repetition etc.

"Brostep" isn't just about making that distinction, its also criticising it for what is seen as its target demographic and how it effectively 'whitewashed' a genre that came from multiculturalism in Southern England. Its an insult.
