The website We Are Hunted has just released their online music research reports for July to December 10, 2010 and has Radiohead ranked pretty high. It comes as no surprise that the band would do so well in social media since they’ve traditionally had a strong following online.

Radiohead is ranked #2 in the Mainstream Chart (Muse is #1), #14 in Twitter mentions for similar music artists, and 36th in online news coverage.

    This makes me angry, Muse wouldn’t even exist if they hadn’t plagiarized Radiohead, The Trickster being exhibit A along with half their other songs.

    Ugh, the whole muse copying radiohead notion is so baseless and it sickens me when it’s brought up. “They both have falsetto and make music that isnt exactly like every other rock band on the planet OMG so muse must be copying” I love both bands, more people should.

    Muse has talent, but they can’t come close to radiohead. Lyrics by Muse are so bad its sickening.

    I know they’re different now. But, they were very open about copying Radiohead when they started.

  • Jake

    Stop crying. You make me wanna puke.

    The people who don’t see the connection between Muse and Radiohead are the ones who don’t actually know anything about the music itself, it’s never a good thing to speak out of ignorance…

    I’m still wondering whether Thom Yorke’s real twitter acount is @thomyorke???

  • Vinny

    That picture of Thom is the sex.

    Oh, come on, stop whining. Radiohead had their influences (like Pink Floyd), Muse had their influences (Radiohead), so it is natural that they sounded similar. It is NORMAL! But now, they’re nothing alike and they both are damn good acts. My favorite 2 bands.

  • I wonder if I’ve ever conversed with Thom via a message board or somethin’. I think Thom probably uses reddit.
