Primed to rock as headliners as Coachella, Muse has one of the world’s most jaw-dropping live shows that includes a plethora of lights, lasers, and loud instruments.

It’s exactly the way a stadium rock show should be. Many up-and-coming artists are inspired by Muse, but who is Muse inspired by?

Drummer Dominic Howard confessed that they took a lot of live show cues from Nine Inch Nails.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of what NIN have been doing with their live show because they’ve always been a band,” said Howard told VH1. “Over the last ten years or so, who’ve been really on the edge of technology and pushing just the kind of technology that’s available to them at that time and I think all their shows have been really, really inspiring.”

Imagine a double headlining bill with these two bands. That would be an ear-ringing and certain deafness that we’d be willing to live with.

By Nadia Noir

Southern California’s favorite indie-poppers, Young The Giant, played two of their hit singles on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Their set included “It’s About Time” and “Crystalized.”
 

Young the Giant talked about their new album Mind Over Matter in an recent exclusive radio interview with LA's KROQ.

“I think it’s just us trying to figure things out and maybe trying to tell a story for everyone who’s trying to figure their life out,” explained Sammer Gadhia. Guitarist Jacob Tilley explained further: “I think this time around and this batch of writing that we did for this record, all of it was pretty much derived from our experiences of being on the road and growing up as five individuals together and all the challenges that we had to overcome.”
