Song Of The Day - Stockholm Syndrome

Today's song of the day is slightly more juiced (no pun intended from the prior post, A-rod fans) than our previous songs of the day. Muse formed more than 14 years ago in England and are still comprised by the original 3 members. Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, piano), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass guitar, vocals, keyboards), and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion) are known for their high-energy shows with lighting displays akin to fireworks shows.

Falsetto vocals and eclectic key changes make Muse an easily distinguishable and undeniably unique band. The name "Stockholm Syndrome" was derived from a bank robbery that occurred in 1973 in Stockholm Sweden. Days after being held captive the victims defended their captors due to an emotional attachment developed during their days as hostages.

Originally recorded on their third studio album entitled "Absolution" this particular recording was performed as part of the AOL Music Sessions, an on-going series of live performances by musicians from all genres.
