"Uprising" by Muse

I don't feel up to a full fledged blog post tonight, so I will leave you with one of my favourite songs from recent years. "Uprising" was the first single from Muse's 2009 album The Resistance. The album was largely inspired by 1984 by George Orwell. In fact, the song "Resistance" from the album makes frequent references to the novel. While "Uprising" makes no direct references to 1984, its lyrics clearly owe something to the novel, as well as other dystopian works. "Uprising" proved rather successful. It went to no. 9 on the UK singles chart and no. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Without further ado, here is "Uprising" by Muse
