Before Muse was bundled into the Twilight phenomenon, they were still making great music. In the Watchmen trailer, the song “Take a Bow” was featured from the album Black Holes and Revelations.

“Uprising”, from the album The Resistance, was featured in the TV spot for Night and Day.

Muse is a progressive rock band from the UK. They have appeared on all three Twilight soundtracks.

Muse didn’t really gain popularity in the US until they were mentioned by Stephanie Meyer, author of Twilight, as inspirational to her writing. Bassist Chris Wolstenholme recently commented on appearing on the Twilight soundtrack.

“I’m not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things, but sometimes you’ve just got to get your music out there in different ways. It’s very difficult in America, because you don’t have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national. You have to take every opportunity you get over there, and sometimes you have to sell your soul.”
