Now it seems that Devon's neo-pro titans Muse have made a profound effect on right-wing broadcaster Glenn Beck after their performance of 'Uprising' at the Grammy ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 13. where the band picked up the Best Rock Album award for 'The Resistance.'
"The lyrics of this are unbelievably powerful," gushed their unlikely supporter who (via Entertainment Weekly), in a state of excitement akin to a teenage girl, went on to describe the song as "a call for revolution."
Beck's theory for Muse's motivation be behind the song is that Europe has been -- ahem -- under a form of serfdom since the defeat of the Nazis in 1945.
"Europeans have been degraded for a very long time," he said. "Really, since the beginning of time. They have had very few glimpses of real freedom even when England won the Second World War." Beck's statement will obviously come as a surprise to both Europeans and to the Allied forces who also fought in the war as well as Muse fans.
Beck has endorsed Muse before only to find the band requesting that he withdraw his support.
