Muse Uprising Music Video and Lyrics

Muse “Uprising”

Muse’s song “Uprising” is about pretty much everything that is wrong with modern society, the use of drugs to keep people dumbed down. Media manipulation to keep the hidden. The fact that we have to unify to take the power back from the fat cats that own all.

“Uprising” was written by Muse’s lead vocalist and guitarist Matthew Bellamy, the song was released as the lead single from the album on 7 September 2009. The song remained at the #1 position on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart for 17 nonconsecutive weeks, and has become the band’s most successful song in the . The song was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. It was also the last UK single to top an American chart for the 2000s, according to the 30 December 2009 Nielsen BDS alternative chart, and also the first UK single to top an American chart for the 2010s.

The , (which Warner group censored by not allowing anyone to embed it from You Tube) was directed by American collective Hydra (Sam Stephens, John Hobbs and others), first aired on 2 on 17 September 2009. The band performs through a miniature city in a small truck, with a lit fuse following behind. At times, they are also seen performing inside a trailer which seems to be exploding. Through the window of a TV shop the band at one point looks at TVs with teddy bears on the screens; Matt smashes the window and TVs with his guitar. At the end of the video a group of teddy bears (with small fangs, claws and reptilian eyes) up from the ground and start destroying the miniature city, only to fall down at the end of the video. This is said to pay homage to the climactic scene in Ghostbusters, one shot even mirroring the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s introduction.

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs
Keep all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on!)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on!)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not us
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
We should never be afraid to
(So come on!)

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
We are losing control
