The Doors vs. Muse


Kirb and Hunter both sent me this so I had to check it out. Muse put out a new single called “Psycho” and the main guitar riff sounds a lot like “Roadhouse Blues” by The Doors. I’m sure you can probably trace the origins of this bluesy riff back a few more decades.

Have a listen!

Muse - "Psycho" (2015)

The Doors - "Roadhouse Blues" (1970)

    Heya! Hunter here, thanks for posting this! Their newest one, “Dead Inside,” also sounds like something, though I’m not sure what. Some Depeche Mode song, also Prince. I would suggest “Dead Inside” vs. Prince’s “Sign ?’ the Times,” but good luck on finding a copy of any of Prince’s music and being able to upload it here. 😛

    My god… Could we have another Muse soundalike that DEFINITELY isn’t a coincidence?

    As for the Depeche Mode similarity, to be fair, they’ve always kind of felt like DM since “Undisclosed Desires.”

    I have some additions to make: Woman by Wolfmother (2005) and The Jean Genie by David Bowie (released on Santa Monica ’72, then on Aladdin Sane in 1973). I was trying to think of ones that came before any of these, but the riffs are a bit different to the 12 Bar Blues Hoochie Coochie Man-I’m A Man-Mannish Boy-Bad to the Bone thing.

    Sorry, 16 Bar Blues, 12 is standard.

    I’m pretty sure that both the Doors and Muse are taking in the guitar and bass parts from John Lee Hooker’s work. I can’t think of a specific song to show that exactly, though.
