Plug in Baby – 1997 Demo

With 6 studio albums and a whopping 37 awards under their belt (including a grammy and 9 NME awards) It is evident that Muse have propelled themselves into global stardom. Their unique rock sound and the pitch perfect vocals of Matt Bellamy has resulted in their music becoming instantly recognizable amongst music lovers and created a large group of committed fans. I was therefore extremely shocked when I came across this demo of one of their biggest hits ‘Plug in Baby’

Although the song is almost unrecognizable and the lyrics differ greatly from the version that was released on their Origins of Symmetry album, I find myself growing to like this version the more I listen to it. Even though Matt sings somewhat out of tune in places, he still manages to showcase his unparalled voice and the guitar riffs are still extremely catchy.
