If all the skateboarding and blood-sucking in Muse's "Supremacy" video wasn't enough to make right-wing pundit Glenn Beck rethink his unrequited love for the English arena rock trio, then the band's just-released clip for "Panic Station" should do the trick. The neon-colored short recasts the space rock three-piece as Japanese pop stars and reimagines the dystopia behind 2012's The 2nd Law as a sci-fi dance party where men cross-dress as Catholic schoolgirls, Muse troll the streets of Tokyo and engage in lewd conduct, and a cartoon octopus leads an animated T-Rex in a conga line. Oh, and Muse are decked out in studs, Technicolor jackets, and Spandex leggings. Nice to see these normally self-serious guys cut loose — especially if it's too loose for their more conservative admirers.
