Placed my votes but overall I'm in the 'should be no staples' crowd for the most part. Miss Stockholm Syndrome for instance but at least its absence allows Apocalypse Please to get a shot.

Completely unrelated, as one's a piano song.

Unless you're Detroit, you're going to get at least one.

Well I wasn't planning to literally go through the songs slot by slot but to clarify my general point is the absence of bigger hits can leave space to play something different.

Pretty simple. Stockholm Syndrome should be played at EVERY show. Every Muse fan loves it, and every just...rock fan knows it. It pretty much gave Muse their reputation for being immensely talented at their instruments. It's their Head Like a Hole. It should be played at every Muse show...because a tired and boring SS is still better than the shitty version of Starlight they keep trotting out.

Occasional (to keep the excitement and still be fairly often) - New Born, Bliss, Citizen, Dead Star

Rare (treats that still pop up) - Assassin, Muscle Museum, MK Ultra, Butterflies & Hurricanes

Stockholm's not as good as it used to be (though I did think it stepped back up a notch at Download and a few other festivals around that time) but even then it's still consistently mega and one of their absolute best live songs. Can't imagine how good it must've been in it's prime. Should definitely always be a staple imo, perfect climax in every set.

I'd swap CE and B&H round, personally. CE's more of a niche fan favourite than Butterflies so it fits in better with stuff like MM and Assass imo.

(plus B&H is miles better )

Agree about B&H being better, at least live, but there are few things better than seeing that 7 string come out and the opening riff.

I was so surprised at download when the riff started I smacked some poor girl with my elbow by accident... Just with joy I felt SO bad

Oh yeah, no, CE is decent live and the opening riff is probs the highlight. I just think it'd make sense for B&H to be more regular. Don't know why it's pretty much disappeared tbh, one of the best songs I've seen them play and it's not exactly obscure.

I'm not too crazy about B&H live. Dunno why.

I'm all for more Abso songs on the setlist. Bring them on!

Stockholm syndrome is one of those rare songs that no one can complain about. It's not rare, but it's awesome enough to deserve a permanent setlist slot. Even at its most lackluster, it beats any song on the next three albums by a LOT. So of course it is gone

Seriously Muse, if you're tired of Stockholm, rotate it with something that at least approaches it in live energy. Hyper Music, perhaps? The Small Print? In Your World? Anything is better than closing your set with Starlight like on the Unsustainable tour, but MWAH into Knights is getting really old.

Tbh I've said this before but if they continued New Born the way it was played last year (Speed, matt playing the intro, etc) I'd take it over today's Stockholm. Granted, Stockholm is still killer live but it's definitely lost it's oomph over the years. I'd still take it over a lot of the alternatives though.

But Stockholm + Agitated should ALWAYS be a thing. Absolutely lethal combination live.

No way, it was the second best part of the shows I went to in Dec 2013. The first was when they played B&H.

I was really disappointed when they replaced it with US for the next few shows, which isn't even in the same league.

Nah, not for me. New Born was mega live last year but Stockholm is always on another level. I'd say the only place it's noticeably deteriorated are with Matt's sometimes meh vocals (#givechris'iwishicould') but it's so massive instrumentally that I don't even notice when I'm there. Only other songs I can think of that've been on that level are Hyper Music and B&H. Maaaybe Dark Shines but I think that just falls into the tier below.

That said, I wouldn't exactly moan if I got 2015 New Born instead, if they were to be rotated.
