Muse demonstrate just how powerful and resistant young love can be in the music video for “Madness”. As two strangers begin a slow-building flirtation aboard a London subway, a riot breaks out, with the scene worsening (SWAT team, snarling dogs, etc.) as the couple gets closer and closer. Meanwhile, the band soundtracks the action from just outside the epicenter, playing oversized instruments while bathed in neon lights, seemingly add more fuel to fire of human emotion. Does the young couple get their shot at romance? And just who set all this insanity in motion in the first place? Find out those answers and more when you watch below.
The band’s latest album, The 2nd Law, hits stores on October 2nd via Helium 3/Warner Bros. Records.
