    I love how a person assumes EVERYONE has heard a group just because they have and are a fan. Trust me when I say, we don;t listen to the same things, we most likely don't watch the same TV shows...so don't assume I know this band's music....

    I can't remember off the top of my head. I do remember hearing one of their songs in Entourage though.

    I worked at Publix when I was in high school. Those soundtracks are SO REPETITIVE. Made me hate every single song that played.

    I don't know if this band really fits into another genre other than maybe jazz or jazz fusion, but Zappa Plays Zappa would be another in terms of tickets. Obviously it would difficult to assess "best selling" in terms back catalog CDs purchased due to ZPZ as opposed to Frank himself.

    wtf?? I didn't realize you would get so worked up about something like this. I don't even consider myself a fan really. Haven't listened to them in a long long time. It's not unreasonable though to expect somebody to have heard their music though when they have songs in movie trailers and TV shows.

    In other words, they're doing their best to stand out and to be different. :lol:

    Pretty much. And yet they're succeeding way more than any heavy metal band there is out there. :lol:

    It's because the general public wouldn't know what good music is if it hit them square between the eyes! :lol:

    Wow, and then the prog fans are the snobs... :lol:

    Oh wait. That's right. There's only one good popular mainstream band nowadays, and that's TSO. Jeez, I wonder why... :lol:

    Um... Are Muse and Britney in the same style? Is Britney a "MUSICIAN"? Not that I know of.

    And if you sit and tell me that you put Muse and Britney in the same league, musically speaking, then there's no hope...

    Considering that he doesn't seem to have heard the band and formed his opinion on a one-sentence Wikipedia (or something) description, then I don't know how he can make any sort of worthwhile statement/comparison.

    I was the same way about metal vs. other music. When I was 13.

    Also, if you've listened to the Dream Theater track Never Enough you've heard Muse. It might as well be a cover of their song Stockholm Syndrome

    And of course Prophets of War is DT trying to be Muse again.

    Funny thing is that Portnoy and Petrucci have said in the past that Muse became somewhat of an influence in the recent DT albums.
