Muse wins Grammy for Best Rock Album
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: After some 15 years performing, the 2011 Grammy Awards finally saw English rock band Muse recognized with three rather important nominations: Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group, Best Rock Song (“Resistance”), and Best Rock Album (“The Resistance”) were all up for grabs at tonight’s awards. Though the band lost out to Neil Young for Best Rock Song (“Angry World”) and to The Black Keys for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group (“Tighten Up”), they got their due with a Best Rock Album win for “The Resistance”, the album containing “The Uprising” another of Muse’s current most popular songs.
Though recognition in the American arena may have been overdue, songs released since those on “The Resistance” saw some fans cooling to the band’s earlier allure. Specifically, “Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)”, written for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” was thought to be cut-rate. Yet, the band might have the Twilight franchise to thank, in part, for current success, having gained many new listeners after featuring “Supermassive Black Hole” on the soundtrack to the first movie in the mega-franchise, “Twilight’”.
