Do people that only know The Resistance get to call themselves Muse fans?

Most of my friends love Undisclosed Desires and United States of Eurasia, and call themselves fans, and that they all "really" want to come to the Aus tour, but shouldn't they leave these positions to the true fans?

Every time someone throw the word "true" fans around that's what I think of.

It's pretty silly to pay $100+ to go see a band that you only like/know two songs of.

If they want to see them, they should be able to, but it's a bit silly of them.

Why's that?

Most bands I go to see I've probably heard 30 secs of on Myspace. If you need to have heard everything by a band to go hear them live, you are not a fan of music. End fucking of.

In reality, yes. They're casual fans which may lead to them becoming bigger fans and listening to the back catalogue. If not, they'll enjoy it while it lasts and enjoy the gig.

In Myooze land, no. Listen to OoS or gtfo.

well if they do decide to go... they have a long while to get to know them

so you should make it a priority to "teach" those people about Muse The Resistance could be the start... it was for me (basically...)

I agree and don't agree, I personally disagree with Super Massive Black Hole and also The Resistance on a whole - they seem to be made mainstream and to appeal to everyone. I dont think that because they like these songs will they like OoS, it seems to have its amazing effect only on the more rock/alternative fans.

A massive selling rock band on a major label and you expect them to make music for a niche audience?

Not that rock is a niche, but it's hardly 2001 where mentioning listening to Muse, then deemed a scary goth band could get the shit kicked into you

They could make it just for the "niche" of rock, and still sell huge, Im just wondering whether they specifically made those songs so that they approved to an even larger audience, or whether they wanted to experiment with a different sound? I reckon time would have been better spent making more amazing niche songs. Just my opinion.

Yes. End of story.

Also, quit throwing around the term "true fan". There's no such thing. It just makes those who use it sound like pretentious idiots.

Sure. I like one or two songs from loads of bands and I consider myself to be a fan of them. It's just more incentive for me to go out and buy a CD by them or see them live.

I'd have to respectfully disagree with you there, while I enjoy listening to support acts that I don't particularly know, when I am going to see a band I try and saturate myself with them beforehand so I know every song - it just enhances the experience for me as I feel like part of the crowd more, if you know what I mean.

I get what you mean. I do the same thing .

Also I want to be completely sure I like the band before spending money going to see them. I would never buy tickets for someone that I've only heard 30 seconds of, as someone else here posted. I'm too broke for that..

I thought it said "Do people that love The Resistance get to call themselves Muse fans?" and I was about to kill you.
