Muse for Bond 23?

September 16, 2009

According to BBC News, British rock band Muse have reportedly expressed interest in performing a song for the 23rd James Bond film.  Muse drummer Dom Howard said, “It’s something we’d probably say yes to, or at least give it a good go… Certainly some of our music fits with the James Bond vibe – and I think it could work… The last few have been pretty good … But I think we could do a good job… United States of Eurasia [from their new album, “The Resistance”] could have worked but it’s probably a bit late for that now.”

I’ve heard parts of their new album, and must say that (of what I’ve heard) it isn’t too bad. I’m mixed when it comes to Muse, though. I really enjoy some of their music and really can’t stand the rest. Will they be good for Bond? Well, I don’t think they’re up-to-par with the last British rock group to perform a Bond theme, Duran Duran, but I think they’d certainly do better than that White/Keys mess of song.

At this point, I’ve got high hopes for The Killers.

I’ve always liked this Muse song, titled “Shrinking Universe”…
