The Devon rock trio's bassist Chris Wolstenholme explained to BBC's Newsbeat, "I'm not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you've just got to get your music out there in different ways."
He said, "You have to take every opportunity you get over there and sometimes you have to sell your soul."
However, the band are grateful for the exposure that appearing on the soundtrack to such a popular franchise brings, as "it's very difficult in America, because you don't have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national."
The band are a personal favourite of Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, and are known to have been an inspiration for her writing, alongside artists including Radiohead, Paramore and Jane's Addiction.
For the third film, Muse penned a brand new track. 'Neutron Star Collision,' and Wolstenholme explained that the band didn't know, or eventually care, how the track would end up being used.
He said, "When we were in the studio writing it, one minute they said they wanted to use it in the end credits, then they said they wanted to use it in another scene.
"Then it was another scene and in the end we were like, 'Do what you want with it, we don't care any more.'"
Discussing the possibility of contributing to more film soundtracks, the bassist thinks it's unlikely in the near future. "Matt's been offered a few movie scores but the touring is so heavy and that would mean taking a few months off, not being able to tour."
