Muse dropped the heavy, riff-driven monster Won't Stand Down today to the delight of old-school Muse fans everywhere. produced by Muse and mixed by Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari). It is an arena-ready anthem of chaos with heavy guitars and industrial-like distortions amplifying Matt Bellamy's striking lyrics about taking the power back. It even features a breakdown and some screams, which is enough to excite both the inner metalhead and the inner Muse maniac in us all. Arriving accompanied by a sinister sci-fi video, directed by award-winning filmmaker Jared Hogan (girl in red, Joji) Won't Stand Down is set to eviscerate stadiums worldwide in the near future.
Speaking about the track Matt Bellamy explained his inspiration.
"‘Won’t Stand Down’ is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere. Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”
All this talk of aggression and the song's heavy, stomping vibes, got us all in the mood for a Muse bing listening session, the end result of which is this list of the five heaviest Muse songs of all time.
