Muse Thinks That They're Selling Their Souls By Putting Their Music In Twilight!

| Filed under: Music MinuteTwilight


HA! Those Twi-hards are going to lose their shiz when they hear this!

Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme has crushed Stephenie Meyers' sparkly Mormon vampire dreams by revealing that despite the Twilight author's obsession with the band, they don't really care for her work!

He asserts that Twilight isn't really his "cup of tea," and continues:

"I'm not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you've just got to get your music out there in different ways. It's very difficult in America because you don't have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national. You have to take every opportunity you get over there and sometimes you have to sell your soul. When we were in the studio writing it, one minute they said they wanted to use it in the end credits, then they said they wanted to use it in another scene. Then it was another scene and in the end we were like, 'Do what you want with it, we don't care any more.'"


Hey, we don't blame him - putting songs on those soundtracks must make some serious BANK!

And just think, you guys, you have two more of these stinkers to ca$h in on!

Congratulations, dudes!

    if there's is one great thing about the Twilight franchise (apart from Rob) it's the movies' soundtracks. I think most fans (and even non-fans) can agree the soundtracks are pretty damn good… apart from Muse's contributions. I gotta say, Supermassive Black Hole was great, but their other two songs SUCK. It's disappointing because their latest CD was great and they have such better songs than whatever crap is on the Eclipse soundtrack.

  2. 2

    The song they put on the soundtrack is pretty good! having music on the eclipse soundtrack is fucking selling urselves out!! It's getting some publicity and cash for a track.

  3. 3

    Wow… how ungrateful can one band be? By putting their music into the Twilght movies they shot to super-stardom. Way to be thankless… Meyer has neem a die-hard fan of theres for a long time and even thanked them in her books. Talk about free publicity.
    I hate self-righteous muscians.

  4. 4

    Yup indeed they did sell their souls even though they rock and America hadnt noticed what incredible music they make.

  5. 5

    I would be embarrassed too! If the same people that were into twilight were into my music… shows how "smart" they are. They like Muse just because it's associated with Edward Cullen. Dumb.

    Truth be told, I wouldn't even know who Muse was until I bought the Twilight soundtrack. I really like the song Supermassive Black hole. It's sad that they feel like they are "selling their souls"…maybe they should be a little more appreciative and be glad that their music is selling at all "over here". Oh, I think their song on the Eclipse soundtrack sucks, big time.

  7. 7

    I don't think twilight is their demographics so they don't have to worry about anything in terms of fans. And he is right there is really no music channel anymore so you got to get your music out there somehow.

  8. 8

    omg thank you thank you thanl you. at least they KNOW they're selling their souls to appear on the soundtracks of those shitty movies.
    but I'm happy they make some money so they can keep on making good records

  9. 9

    Kind of kicking their new "fans" right in the gut but at least he's honest.

  10. 10

    STFU you dont know what your talking about, such a dumbass

  11. 11

    Oh NOW Perez has caught on to the truth about twilight???? Seriously!
    MUSE actually had potential, but associating themselves with something like twilight has done NOTHING but hurt them. I can't even bring myself to listen to their music, because all I think about is Twilight when I hear the name Muse. YUCK!

  12. 12

    good for them for speaking up on such a crappy movie series. in their defense the song blows anyways. i'm sure that's why they said to just do whatever with it.

  13. 13

    oh shit I meant isn't selling urselves out…..that kinda ruined the whole point I was writing there…

  14. 14

    Ok they need to get the fuck over it. Theyre not that great. Just sit back appreciate the money and the recoginition. geezus

  15. 15

    I am not a huge fan of Twilight or Muse, but…..
    Where did they say they didn't care about her work? It just says they have to use any means necessary to get their music out there. The context was misconstrued.

  16. 16

    I like Muse, and this doesn't make me like them any less. You'd think they'd be a bit more grateful, though, seeing as how Stephenie Meyer has a lot to do with the recent serge of fans they've had lately. She introduced them and their music to a lot of people, like it or not.

  17. 17

    muse = intelligent chaps who made an unfortunate error
    stephenie meyers = a blank wall in a windowless unlit room

  18. 18

    ….good…it is not like it was the first Crow or anything…that really was/is a killer soundtrack….at least they know it….

    Re: insertsobriquet

    You are so full of shit. Muse didnt have "great potential" They have be an established and awesome band, made amazing music for years. If they are new to you it is because of twilight. AND if you think of Twilight when ever you hear the word "Muse" then you clearly have too much twilight in you life.

  20. 20

    I have to say… the soundtracks are really incredible. It's a lot of the less popular bands that I love, and I've found some new incredible ones too. But I can see why they might feel like they are sell a piece of their souls.

  21. 21

    I love muse for about 7 years now, and FINALLY they say something about this. I'm not a huge fan of twilight, and I feel like they are kinda opposing their own lyrics and while they keep trying to be successful in hollywood. Kate Hudson slut is not helping either.

  22. 22

    Uh, yeah… after they did this TWICE they say this. NEXT.

  23. 23

    YEAH! there's the muse i know and LOVE!!! thank you Chris, for having the only sense sometimes.

  24. 24

    IF it weren't for the music twilight would be COMPLETELY ridiculous. I'm not 100% crazy with the Eclipse soundtrack but you can't deny Twilight and New Moon and SICK sound tracks with amazing bands. I was a huge fan of muse BEFORE twilight and from what I can tell twilight didn't make them "sell outs" it made them known to a broader American audience. thats all.

  25. 25

    I was over Glee last season. I have tried to like the characters but the only one that I want to see more of is Sue. The kids bore me to tears, they are terrible actors.

  26. 26

    Funny thing is I would have been PISSED if Muse HAD NOT been incorperated into the twilight franchise…that band was literally Stephanie Myers muse. She wrote those books while listening to THEIR music.

  27. 27

    haha thats funny because muse is here insperation for the books.

  28. 28

    Sorry guys, wrong rant. I effed up.

  29. 29

    Umm when did they say they don't like her work? They may not read it or be into it but that includes a lot of people. It's not like they went out of their way to offend her. I'm sure they appreciate the fact that she loves the band! And they are obviously so lucky to be used on the AWESOME soundtracks. But I have to agree that super massive black hole was the only good muse song on any of the soundtracks!!! But on another note…WHO loves SIA-my love on eclipse soundtrack!!! Omg amazing!

  30. 30

    Re: blacklily.of.the.valley

    you are a genius. where are you from so i can shake your hand?

  31. 31

    Yeah! My respect for Muse has returned!!!

  32. 32

    It breaks my heart to say it, but MUSE are Now fukking sell-outs. When Stephanie Meyer loved them, they only had a cult-following. Thanks to her & her obsession with their music, they are now global superstars. I guess they like to bite the hand that opened doors for them. Dating herpes-whores like Kate Hudson & now jumping on the underground-trendy-too-hip-(but not really), "Twilight sucks" bandwagon — yeah, that's not selling out at all. BTW - Chris Wolstenholme should shut up & go back to picking out which rugs to cover up his bald-pate while on tour. Their early music was AWESOME. This new stuff is crap.
    Oh & aren't they supposed to be anti-big brother & all that stuff? Seems to me like Wolstenholme loves his Big Brother "national" radio.

  33. 33

    i didnt expect them to say anything different, and im so glad they didn't!

  34. 34

    Muse has offically sold out. And they're admitting it. Being fabulous musicians and artists, which they are, has absolutely nothing to do with how many obnoxious tweens listen to your music. And quite frankly the quality of their music is suffering. I'm actually very pleased that none of Thom Yorke's work ended up in Eclipse. After having to suffer through 15 step and Hearing Damage, I didn't think I could take anymore digression of Radiohead. There are fans who supported these bands before Twi-Twi and those same fans will support them after Twi-Twi. It's ridiculous they're being credited because of DAMN soulsucking twilight.

  35. 35

    You're so fucking stupid. You ALWAYS manipulate peoples' words, it's ridiculous. They didn't say anything personally offensive to Stephanie Meyer you idiot. Stop trying to cause drama out of nothing.

  36. 36

    Their music is bullshit for teenagers, same people who like Twilight. I admit i liked it when i was 14.

  37. 37

    Thank you for admitting you SOLD OUT on your fans. Im happy that Muse wanted to get heard in the US but honestly doing it this way does totally go against all they stand for. And that last song, Neutron Star Collision? Utter rubbish Im sorry to say. What happened to the awesome Muse from Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry, man do those albums rock big time. Cant wait to hear the next album sans sell out material!!!

  38. 38

    erm, where on earth did they say that by lending their music to Twilight they've sold their souls? It's just a figurative speech, not necessarily directed at anything in particular. What a way to stir up shit and twisting words.

    Muse was HUGE in Europe before Twilight, just because the American audience didn't know of them doesn't make them any less successful or less talented than some of the so-called 'big stars' out there. Yes, Twilight series has introduced them to a wider audience, but that doesn't mean they'll never make their break in US if they didn't do it. Just because he said he's not sure 'how cool it is' to have their soundtrack linked to the movies (let's face it, which straight male would admit Twilight series is 'cool'?) doesn't make them ungrateful. In fact, it makes them honest. Kudos to them.

    I'll admit, I was a bit like 'wtf?!' when Matthew Bellamy confirmed that he was dating Kate Hudson, but you know what? That doesn't make him a sellout. It's his personal life choice, it has nothing to do with his music whatsoever. Grow up people.

  39. 39

    This gives me a hope. Knew they are not totally lost yet.

  40. 40

    Oh Chris, you remind me of myself. Say it like it is! Fuck 'em :) I loathe Twilight, and I Loathe the fact that they're in Twilight! I remember when they were Shooting the Video for NSC and all of us on the muse.mu MB we're talking about it. I swore up and down that the new video wasn't gonna be for twilight… and then I ate my foot… Honestly I find it embarrassing such terribly movies associated with such an Epic band. Their talent combined with such shit makes me sick. But thanks Chris :) at least you still have the plot! (Muser joke)

  41. 41

    Number one: stop hating on Perez, he's not a UN Ambassador so he has the right to say whatever he wants. Number Two: he's not twisting their words, it's an interpretation. Any person who has the slightest understanding of how journalism works an individual has free reign on their own interpretation. Number three: All the people who say Muse should thank the Twilight series for shooting them into "super-stardom", they've already achieved it. They were completely successful on their own before the Twilight phenomenon. It's embarrassing for you, because you're obviously talking about something you don't know about. Get over it.

  42. 42

    WOW. THIS from the same band who sold "Uprising" to practically every lame ass commercials, wanna be TV shows ("V") and latter day lame ass movies?

  43. 43

    I KNOW!!! MUSE ROCKS TWILIGHT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FUCK U Stephenie Meyer!!! U SUCK!

    What can I say… some people are so stupid! If wasn't for Stephenie Meyer, Muse wouldn't have reached half of what they did. They can be at least thankfull for all the money they are getting by having their song in the credits, or in a scene or whateva…. bullshit!

  46. 46

    Obviously. They realize Twilght sucks, thier grown men. But who would turn down perfectly good money?

  47. 47

    If they really don't care about it then no wonder the song sucked so bad

  48. 48

    umm perez he didnt actually say that.hes just stating its 2 taste.just cus u like having cocks in ur ass dont mean everyone else dus.fucko.
    radio1 woo!

  49. 49

    Re: kittiesomething – they weren't shot to 'super super-stardom",
    they just, mostly didn't have pre-teen girls as their fans

    I've been a fan of Muse since very long and I have to say I was very dissapointed that they gave their music for the Twilight Saga. It's not that I hate Twilight because I actually find the books entertaining to some degree but Muse music and craft is higher up in creativity, art and inspiration than the movies. The movies don't do justice to the books and don't match the quality of Muse's music.

  51. 51

    It's about time… They shouldn't have agreed to give their extraordinary music to that shit of a "movie" in the first place. Of course they sold their souls… and it is certain that they could have made their music known to the US (where most people never search for anything and listen to whatever crap is on MTV) in a different, more decent way. They are just WAY TOO GOOD for the Twilight franchise. The vast majority of their fans, we were devastated by this "collaboration". I hope they are NOT in the next movies!! (Crosses Fingers)

  52. 52

    Twilight fans deserve to be publicly, and continually ridiculed for their stupidity, So Go Chris!

  53. 53

    honestly it did make me lose a lot of respect for them but at least they owned up

  54. 54

    Muse doesn't plan to do any more of the Twilight movies!

  55. 55

    Well, MUSE may not really like TWILIGHT, but IT'S TOO LATE NOW.

    No one is going to take THE TWILIGHT BAND seriously, and the vast majority of these new 'fans' who like embarrassing dross like the last MUSE track aren't going to appreciate the older MUSE stuff, and sure as hell aren't going to be there for 2011's stadium tours (if MUSE can still pull those off by then).

    Muse have shown not to care about their longtime fans at all - but to be fair I don't think that has anything to do with TWILIGHT, it's just the band's general attitude to fans, money and fame.

  56. 56

    and yet their music seems to be part of the new tom cruise movie?

    love muse but comon guys

  57. 57

    Oh dear… Having regrets, guys?

  58. 58

    Re: blacklily.of.the.valley – i'm sure Ms. Meyers will just cry herself to sleep on her huge bags of money over your petty comment.

  59. 59

    If they really feel THAT bad about it, and want to stick to their indie guns, just simply give back all the money that they made from having their music in the movie. Pretentious assholes.

  60. 60

    Never been a fan of Muse, but I don't blame them for not passing up the opportunity to be on the soundtracks. It's just like when the goo goo dolls wrote that awful song for Transformers. Good musicians compromise their artistic integrity for money and/or exposure all the time. I don't think its selling out. It's just the name of the game.

  61. 61

    muse being my favorite band and them being my idol and twilight being the most annoying thing in the world makes me very happy to see this. Twilight is totally overrated and it brain washes young girls to watch the movie by putting half naked guys. This movie is definantly no oscar winning movie. And muse is a fucking amazing band. i was crushed to see that they were even incorporated with twilight but thank you putting this up and making me feel happy!

  62. 62

    Ouch! D:

  63. 63

    Forget Twilight, have you guys read Ruby Sun?! It's on the smashwords website as an ebook, and it's AWESOME! Twilight is good, but I know several people who have read Ruby Sun, and they say that it's BETTER than Twilight! I agree! No vampires!

  64. 64

    i think it's totally fine for them to not love the twilight franchise as much, instead of getting real fans, they only got some teen wannabes who listen to their music because steph said so.
