"Ridin' the Wind" composed by George Bellamy for his band The Tornados debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1963 at position no. 80 while Muse's song "Uprising" composed by George's son Matthew debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at position no. 81 in August 2009. "Ridin' the Wind" was never released as a single in the UK but their earlier song"Telstar" composed by Joe Meek and the Tornados hit #1 in both the USA and the UK in 1962. The Tornados were known as the Tornadoes in the USA because another band had the same name. They were unable to tour in the USA in the early 1960's because of contractual tour commitments they had with British artist Billy Fury and because of a copyright infringement suit filed in France which the band eventually won.

"Uprising" peaks on the following Billboard charts showing genre crossover appeal:

#1 Alternative
#14 Hot AC/Adult Top 40
#21 Triple A
#28 Mainstream Rock
#37 Hot 100
#46 CHR/Mainstream Top 40


Records held by Muse on the Billboard and Mediabase Alternative songs charts:

"Uprising" - Most weeks spent at # 1 - Total of 19 from Sept 2009 thru Jan 2010 (Mediabase)

"Uprising" & "Resistance" occupied two of the top three positions in March 2010 (Billboard & Mediabase)

"Uprising" & "Resistance" & "NSC" concurrently in the Top 15 in June 2010 (Billboard & Mediabase)

"Uprising" & "Resistance" & "NSC" & "UD" concurrently in the Top 50 in July 2010

"Uprising" has been certified Platinum (one million paid downloads) by the RIAA in the USA. It was one of 98 songs which achieved platinum status in 2010.

Il est évident que les soulèvements populaires méritent d'être encouragé.

1 1/2 Year Chart Streak

For the past 83 consecutive weeks Muse has had at least one song on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. The streak started in August 2009 with Uprising and has continued uninterrupted with Resistance and NSC in 2010 and with UD through March 2011. This current streak beats the prior 69 non-consecutive weeks streak set by Muse from July 2006 through October 2007 with the three songs released from Black Holes and Revelations including KOC, Starlight, and SMBH.

BH&R remains the top selling album by Muse in both the USA and the UK. However the IFPI has just given the band's latest GRAMMY nominated album The Resistance a 2 x Platinum Europe Award for sales of two million copies. Click on the link below for the latest albums certified in Europe.

2011 GRAMMY performance of "Uprising" and acceptance speech by the UK rock trio watched by 28 million TV viewers impacts Muse album and single sales in the USA

"Uprising" has re-entered the iTunes singles chart peaking as high as #19 on Monday the day following the ceremony and The Resistance has re-entered both the iTunes and amazon.com album charts peaking as high as #16 on the former chart and as high as #14 on the latter. The GRAMMY winner for Best Rock Album also re-enters the Billboard 200 album chart at #178 which reflects sales of about 4,000 units thru Sunday February 13. On next week's chart the full impact of the GRAMMY performance will be the felt and the album will likely enter the top half of this chart with estimated sales of 8-10k. It already has sold well over 600k copies in the USA since its release in September 2009.

Muse did not make as much money in the USA for 2010 as Lady Gaga did but the lads did make the list. Click the link below for details about estimated net take home pay for various artists as compiled by Billboard.

http://www.billboard.com/features/mo...2.story?page=2

The band probably made closer to $10 million in the USA when you include festival headliner appearance fees, songwriter royalties from radio airplay, synchronization deals, and merchandise sales. Multiply this figure by four or five to get estimated worldwide net earnings generated by The Resistance.

2011 GRAMMY impact from Muse performing Uprising and accepting the Best Rock Album award on February 13:

The Resistance jumps from #178 to #66 on the Billboard 200 Album chart with sales rising from 4,000 to 11,000, an increase of 157%. The week prior to the GRAMMYs it sold about 2,000 copies and was not on the album chart. TR now has spent 65 weeks on this chart debuting at #3 in September 2009 and has sold over 650,000 units in the USA. The last time TR ranked this high on the BIllboard 200 was way back in January 2010 when it held position #63.

Meanwhile, the already certified platinum Uprising single sold approx another 60,000 copies after their GRAMMY performance.

The three singles from TR have now spent a total of 117 charted weeks on the Alternative Songs/Modern Rock airplay chart with Undisclosed Desires having just spent its 31st week on the latest chart just released by Billboard. UD will be removed from this chart when airplay detections rank it below #15.

Another Muse chart record in the USA:

The Resistance album now has had three singles spend at least 30 weeks on the BIllboard Alternative Chart, a feat last achieved by Linkin Park with their Minutes to Midnight and Hybrid Theory albums. LP accomplished this under the old chart rules which moved songs with 20 or more charted weeks to recurrent status after they dropped below position #20 while Muse operated under the new chart rules which removes songs with 20 or more charted weeks after they drop below position #15. Uprising meanwhile is still getting significant airplay at modern rock radio stations with over 640 spins and would rank in the top 20 this week. Also, British chanteuse Adele is actually getting played at 17 modern rock stations with just over 200 spins and debuts in the Top 40 on the Alternative chart this week while UD will likely move to recurrent status next week after a sharp drop in airplay the past few weeks.

The Billboard Music Awards will take place on May 22, 2011 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be televised on the ABC television network in the USA. This award ceremony was televised annually in December from 1990 thru 2006 on the Fox television network but it has not taken place the past few years.

Nominees in various music genres including Rock and Alternative will be announced by Billboard this week on Wednesday April 13. The nominations will be based on album, single and digital sales, airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on online destinations for music for the period from February 28, 2010 through March 1, 2011.

If Muse is nominated, a separate thread will be created. Muse will be performing a gig in Moskva, Russia on the day of the awards. Rihanna has already been announced as one of the performers for the show.

Mediabase Alternative chart history

Muse's single, "Uprising," smashed another rock radio airplay record, spending its 19th consecutive week at Number One on the Alternative Rock chart in January 2010. That breaks the record for longest run at the top in the chart's history, which was previously held by Foo Fighters. That band's "The Pretender" logged 17 weeks in the Number One position back in late 2007.

Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme in an interview with Philadelphia radio station WMMR said that "Uprising" started out sounding very different from its final version:

"Initially when Matt brought the idea in, it kind of sounded to me like it could have gone down a very kind of electronic or synth-y kind of road. But we, you know, we talked about it and we thought, you know, instead of thinking along those lines, it would be a bit cooler to maybe think more along the lines of glam rock. And we really wanted to keep it real, you know. We wanted to keep it as a piece of music that was played by the band. You know, we wanted the power of the song to come from us as people and as players."

I think Dom agreed with Chris.

"Uprising is influenced by glam rock, 80's synths, riots and the more eccentric protesters at the G-20 summit held in London in April 2009. It expresses a general mistrust of bankers, global corporations, and politicians." - Matt

Source: iTunes LP liner notes for The Resistance


In a 2007 interview with XFM, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl stopped short of explaining the meaning behind "The Pretender," but alluded its roots go to current political unrest. Grohl noted:

"That's the thing with lyrics, you never want to give away specifics, because it's nice for people to have their own idea or interpretation of the song. But, you know, everyone's been f*cked over before and I think a lot of people feel f*cked over right now and they're not getting what they were promised, and so something to do with that."
