Muse, the self-serious English trio who were recently declared the "Best Act in the World Today" despite releasing Worst New Music album The 2nd Law, have unleashed a new video for heavy-handed anthem "Follow Me." Consisting of footage from the band's smoky, multi-colored stage show, the four-and-a-half minute clip gets off to a slow start: lead vocalist Matthew Bellamy ambles through bland imagery (darkness falls and surrounds, you get lost and feel scared) before the three-piece blasts off into its patented hybrid of electronic blips and arena rock. The power of Muse's "EDM by way of U2" pick-me-up nearly disintegrates Bellamy at the 2:23 mark. The crowds soon follow suit, pulsating from the Sheer Importance of the song. "Follow me?" No thanks, guys.
