Muse Crowned Queen of the United States of Eurasia

Muse isn't the kind of band that attracts a lot of 15 year old female fans but, after the inclusion of their song "Supermassive Black Hole" on the Twilight soundtrack, the band found themselves wedged between Taylor Swift and David Archuleta on millions of pink iPod nannos across the country. "The United States of Eurasia" is the first song to leak off of their upcoming album The Resistance and don't expect vampire loving teens to pick up on it. The track is an obvious emulation of Queen and, along with the album name and the sound of the jets at the end of the song, evokes a certain amount of Orwellian-ism.
