Chart history stats for Muse

Songs ranked by peak position reached on Billboard's Alternative Songs/Modern Rock radio airplay chart based on weekly spins monitored by Nielsen/BDS at about 50 alt rock radio stations in the USA:

#1 "Madness" (a chart record-setting 19 non-consecutive weeks @ No. 1 and 38 consecutive weeks in the top ten and a total of 41 weeks on the chart) - Certified Platinum by the RIAA and has sold over 1.5 million digital downloads according to Nielsen SoundScan - Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #45

#1 "Uprising" (17 non-consecutive weeks @ No. 1; 28 weeks in the top three; 44 weeks in the top ten; and 53 total weeks on the chart) - Certified Platinum by the RIAA and has sold over 2.2 million digital downloads according to Nielsen SoundScan - Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #37

#1 "Resistance" (4 weeks @ No. 1 and 33 total weeks on the chart) - Bubbling Under Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #114

#2 "Starlight" (Certified Gold - 3 weeks @ No. 2 and 26 total weeks on the chart) - Bubbling Under Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #101

#2 "Panic Station" (14 weeks in the Top 10 and 24 total weeks on the chart)

#4 "Undisclosed Desires"

#6 "Supermassive Black Hole"

#9 "Hysteria" - Bubbling Under Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #118

#9 "Time Is Running Out" - First single for the band debuted on the U.S. charts in April 2004

#10 "Knights of Cydonia"

#14 "Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)" - Billboard Hot 100 chart peak position #77

#19 "Follow Me"

#31 "Stockholm Syndrome"

#39 "Survival" - Billboard Rock Songs chart peak position

#39 "Supremacy" - Billboard Rock Songs chart peak position

Album rank by peak position reached on the Billboard 200 chart:

#2 The 2nd Law (About 450k copies sold)

#3 The Resistance (Certified Gold - About 800k copies sold)

#9 Black Holes and Revelations (Certified Gold - About 800k copies sold)

#46 HAARP (CD/DVD Certified Gold)

#107 Absolution (Certified Gold - Over 700k copies sold)

#115 Live at Rome Olympic Stadium - Over 10k copies sold

#161 Origin of Symmetry* - Approx 100k copies sold

Showbiz has never charted. It was released on Maverick Records in 1999 and has sold about 100k copies to date.

*This album was never released in the USA during 2001-2003 reportedly because record company execs thought Mr. Bellamy's falsetto on some of the tracks was not considered commercial. It was released in 2005 after the success of Absolution and finally charted in 2010 after the success of their album The Resistance.

Thanks for posting this--I looked these same chart stats up on the Billboard site and it's really interesting to see how Muse has done on the American charts.

Poor Showbiz. One of my favorite Muse albums.

Thanks for this To clarify: this chart is solely based on selected stations' airplay? I mean, it doesn't count actual sales/downloads? In any case, WMG clearly did a fantastic job promoting these singles for the radio stations.

Well to be fair I'm pretty sure it was never released over there, at least at the time. Muse hadn't had a big enough hit over here yet.

Very cool to see. I know the whole Twilight issue divides a lot of Musers, but I'm just happy that the band is seeing upward movement in the charts.

Thanks for this.
Poor Absolution. Muse's best album, and the worst in the US.

Pretty interesting. I hate to see my favorite album (OoS) at such a low ranking.
I hate America's taste in music. I wish I lived in France!
Wait... Nvm, here I get to see all my favorite bands in smaller venues.

Yes, in my chart ranking posted above the Muse singles released in the USA were ranked based on radio airplay at alternative/modern rock stations such as KROQ in Los Angeles and not on downloads or other sales.

"Uprising" peaked at No 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA. This chart combines radio airplay from all station formats/genres and also includes singles.sales such as downloads from iTunes as well as physical units sold.

"Uprising" debuted at No. 9 on the official UK singles chart while NSC debuted at No. 11 two weeks ago. I believe at least six other singles from prior Muse albums have charted in the Top Ten on the UK singles chart.

Also, I think Muse have now sold close to 11 million albums worldwide since 1999 as well as several million singles and digital downloads. Breakdown of estimated total global album sales follow below:

TR 2.6 million

BH&R 3 million

HAARP 700k

Absolution 2.5 million

OoS 1.5 million

Hullabaloo 500k

Showbiz 500k

WHAT.

107??? This is a freaking disgrace! Muse's best album and it only reached 107 in the States?

Must move to Europe now.
