Muse SNL

Here’s a fun fact you may not know: Both Austin City Limits and Saturday Night Live are celebrating their 38th season of existence this year. Both shows obviously have a stellar history of musical performances, something which continued on Saturday night. ACL featured Radiohead, while SNL served up a band that used to sound just like Radiohead: Muse. Continuing their support behind The 2nd Law, Muse were all over the place stylistically last night, offering up performances of the dubby “Madness” and the funk rock cut “Panic Station”. If you missed it, we have the video replay below.

Passion Pit will appear on next week’s Saturday Night Live, appearing alongside host Christina Applegate.

That is an interesting coincidence between these two shows; someone knows how to do their research. I don’t have their new album, but I think I may go out and get it after seeing these performances. I was talking to a coworker at DISH about the show, and he couldn’t get over the touchpad bass guitar. I thought it was really cool to not only incorporate dubstep into the song, but also into the performance. I saved both performances on my Hopper’s huge hard drive, and I have to say that after watching them a few more times I think I liked “Panic Station” more. I just don’t know how well dubstep can fit into rock music.
