Muse or Daft Punk: Popularity

Hey fellow muse fans. I have a friend who trashes on muse basically everyday. He argues that Daft Punk is better. Obviously, any coherent individual would know you cant argue who sounds better when it is an opinion question, but he doesn't understand this. I know muse is a much larger band than daft punk but can anyone provide links with comparisons in ticket sales or album sales? For example how muse was the first band to sell out wembley stadium.

Thanks!

Nope. In terms of mainstream popularity and single/album sales, nope.

Yeah but there's 3.5 people in Muse and 2 in Daft Punk so Muse is bigger.

Popularity/sales means shag all when it comes to quality of band. Though I'd argue Daft Punk are bigger than Muse, despute being in different music categories.

Anyway, off to Muse section.

I was surprised to find out that Muse have more facebook fans and last.fm listeners than Daft Punk. But still, I'd say DP are "bigger".


Who cares anyway

Well, if you put both bands on a set of scales, I can see how you would come to answer, yes...

In my experience, when this has been coming up for at least 10 years...

Music fans in their mid teens care. For some reason.

Both are good acts, and both are better than a lot of the acts in circulation. Doesn't matter that much whose bigger or more popular - just if you like it. Next.

Idk. I think the helmets weigh more than Bellamy so we'd need to go by mass rather than weight.

Matt would be wearing some sort of LED suit I feel. That will drag.
