New Muse Video – “Uprising”

The Dr. Who-and-Blondie nodding single “Uprising” is the linchpin to Muse’s The Resistance, Bellamy getting bellicose about the prospect of a brave new world you only thought we were sidestepping with the election of Obama because, whoa, political songs can be about other countries, too. The video has the trio blasting their anti-mind-control fight song from the back of a pickup truck in a post-apocalyptic world (you know it is so because of the welding machine sparks everywhere). Things burn, a giant teddy bear tramples the town, Muse will be victorious, and Glenn Beck approves but only because he doesn’t get it.

The Resistance is out 9/14 via Warner Bros.
