Rate / Rank Muse songs live

Always one for an argument, Fabri and I were discussing what songs were and weren't shit live so I came up with this. Had a quick search and couldn't find a thread specifically for this so thought I'd make one.

Rather than just leaving this open to debate whatever you wish, I'll start specifically with the discussion Fabri and I were having about Starlight and Supermassive Black Hole.

I personally feel like Starlight isn't that bad of a song live and is a nice sing along even if it isn't the best song Muse have in their catalogue. Fabri seems to think it's shit, should die a horrible death and should never come back.

As far as Supermassive goes, I think it's a fair song live but nothing special whereas Fabri thinks it's one of their better song live (I'm sort of paraphrasing). I don't entirely disagree, I just think quite a few songs are a lot better.

Of course, you are welcome to debate this if you so wish as well as give your personal opinions on how good certain songs are live, etc.

I only did it so other people could tell you you're wrong.

Cool idea

Starlight and Supermassive are both good and fun live, to me anyway. That's often the case with the better known songs; more people know them so the atmosphere is just waaayyy better for them


Best live songs (based on the gigs I've been to):

Knights
TIRO
Butterflies


Worst:

Guiding Light
Blackout (pains me to say that when I see it from Wembley 07, but it really wasn't great at the Emirates)
Explorers

I think that performance of Blackout was one where if you're closer to the cat-walk or the B-Stage, it's better because you're close to both the band and the acrobat so it feels a little more intimate whereas if you're further back, I can imagine you feel a little left out.

Okay, I'll bite

I like both Starlight and SMBH live, but I would definitely say that SMBH isn't anything special (though it's certainly good live), and neither is Starlight, but the sing-along is fun. It's just an awful closer

Here are my personal lists for best & worst live songs I've seen.

Best:
Dead Star
Bliss
Citizen Erased
Butterflies & Hurricanes
Knights of Cydonia
Stockholm Syndrome

Worst:
Undisclosed Desires
Guiding Light
Explorers (though I do enjoy it on the album)

Hate time

Deadstar at Coventry surprised me with how generic it sounded. Maybe it was just the crowd but it didn't give me any sort of wow feeling compared to the first time i heard CE and Butterflies

Edit: Also nothing sticks in my mind more than the first (and only) time i've seen Map live. I wanna see it again to make sure it wasen't just first gig excitement but i hold it as the best song ive ever heard by any band live.

Yeah, that was something to do with it. But it generally just wasn't that great The acrobat and lightbulb was cool, but the fact that they'd done similar stuff before at the Wembley gigs kind of ruined the novelty of it... That and Matt just pissed Sammy and I off a bit during it

Hysteria, Resistance, New Born, Knights, Stockholm, Sunburn, Uprising, Survival were all huge at my gigs.

Starlight gets a good crowd reaction but it's shit. Explorers is the worst song they could ever play live, imo.

Not playing the Guitar takes away from it for me too but I'd rather see the song that way now than not ever see it.

That's the way I look at it.

I definitely enjoyed it but I do feel like it could and should have been better.

Would say at the moment Stockholm Syndrome was far and away my favourite live song from this tour. Bliss/Sunburn/Butterflies and Hurricanes were all really good as well

SMBH is alright but i always think it could be better and more lively, Starlight is a good enough live song just no guitar and closing the show on this tour is still a daft idea...
