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. 😛
funny u should mention that…
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.
Trouble by Elvis (1958) is also similar, so I may have traced it back further now.
maybe that for muse at least??
kinda just waking up lol so i could be way off
saves the day: diseased
no doubt: happy now
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.
It reminds me of this entry on your blog from 2012:
“a href” doesn’t work
I meant: The Black Keys – “Gold on the Ceiling” (2011) vs. Pizza Hut – “Cheesy Bites Pizza” (?)
Has anyone compared Muse – Psycho with Frank Klepacki – Hell March, the soundtrack of Command & Conquer? Because that is almost the same.
Yeah it sounds similar. Another song that’s similar with Psycho is Uprising, still by Muse.
No doubt that No Doubt sucks.
