MUSE frontman Matt Bellamy doesn’t care if people think his band’s involvement in the Twilight films is uncool.
The 31-year old singer and guitarist admits to being a massive fan of the vampire movie franchise. So it’s no wonder Muse have had a song in each of the three movies. Or that they want to continue this run in next year’s Breaking Dawn film and the rumoured second part of the final Stephenie Meyer novel in 2012. Matt shrugged: “Of course it doesn’t matter we have gained fans because of Twilight and that might seem to be uncool. That doesn’t bother me at all.
“As a band you are represented everywhere. We also have a gig for Guitar Hero, of all things.
“Muse as a video game – that’s something, right?”
In the original Twilight film, the trio’s song Supermassive Black H*** was used, while on New Moon they had I Belong To You (New Moon Remix) on the soundtrack. In upcoming third movie Eclipse, the band have Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever).
Matt added: “It’s great to be involved and it’s so much fun. I like the movies a lot. They’re really good and we hope to continue with this and do another song.”
The band’s latest Twilight track reached No.11 in the charts last month and was the lead song from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse film soundtrack, which is out on Monday.
