225 – Muse – Plug In Baby (2001)
Written by Matthew Bellamy
Produced by David Botrill and Muse
Label – Mushroom
Some of the best songs are built purely on extraordinary riffs, and “Plug In Baby” is no exception. It’s kind of squeezed out of a squall of feedback and background noise, likening itself to a manic modern take on Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. It was the sound of the new Millennium and forged the band a distinct identity that would ensure their importance as one of the most important rock acts of the era.
