Muse is one of those bands that I hadn't heard much about until I started playing RockBand3 a few years ago. There is only 1 official Muse song in the RockBand game library, and without fail you could find a weekly (if not daily) post in the game forums where the fans were begging for "Moar Muse!" Curiosity takes place, and I found myself looking for more of their discography (or as the fans would say "Moar Muse!") to see what the attraction is.
"Plug In Baby" was featured on their 2001 second studio album Origin of Symmetry. Released as the lead single from the album on 5 March 2001, "Plug In Baby" became the band's highest-charting single when it peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart, until it was surpassed by "Time Is Running Out", which peaked at number 8 in 2003. Today, "Plug In Baby" is considered one of Muse's most notable songs, and has been featured on the live albums Hullabaloo Soundtrack (2002) and HAARP (2008). "Plug In Baby" is often praised for its opening guitar riff which Total Guitar magazine readers voted as the #1 ultimate guitar riff of the 2000s.
