Muse Things that will always give me chills:

• The solo to Thoughts Of A Dying Atheist

• The solo to Invincible

• The Solo to Reapers

• When all the instruments start playing during the intro to Plug In Baby

• When all the instruments kick in during the main riff to New Born

• Matt’s G#5 in Showbiz

• Anytime Matt uses the Fuzz Factory pedal live

• The drum fill in Assassin

• The “Aim, Shoot, Kill your leaders” part in Assassin

• The solo in Guiding Light

• Anytime Matt hits a higher note than a G#5

• When the main riff starts in Map Of The Problematique

• The main riff of Bliss

Feel free to add on anything that gives you chills or something like that’s Muse related.
