It's a shame a lot of Americans haven't heard this great British alt rock band. Matt Bellamy's falsetto and killer guitar riffs set this band apart from other pretenders.
They also put on a great live show, mixing over amped guitar and synthesizer with sick light effects. Matt sounds a lot like the late Freddie Mercury (RIP), which will get Dad to turn up the tube, and their hit "Supermassive Black Hole" was in Twilight, which will appeal to female teen/Twilight mom crowd.
1. Knights of Cydonia- popularized by guitar hero, great chorus and surfer rock solo.
2. Uprising- their new song with sci fi effects and soccer fan chanting.
3. Hysteria- a headbanger's delight. awesome chorus and guitar riffs.
4. Resistance- nice piano intro turns into an upbeat apocalyptic love song.
