I am not a big fan of them, but nowadays they are probably the best band in the boring mainstream market.
They are very good musicians, with an hint of Prog.
My Muse's favorite song is "City of Delusion" from "Black holes and Revelations", what about your choice?
"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful
what we pretend to be."

I've never understood the claim that Muse has prog tendencies. 
Absolution is a great alt-rock album though. 

Favorite song by them is Falling Away With You. Favorite "proggiest" song? Knights of Cyndonia, i suppose. That seems to be their claim of progressiveness.

Butterflies and Hurricanes I think, but they've got a lot of really good songs of a high quality.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

They're crap
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Pretty much all of Symmetry and Absolution imo. From there it gets a bit more scattered though.

Creep. What a great song. Not the proggiest, but whatever.

Wacko

My favorite proggy Muse song would be Knights of Cydonia. They don't have many really proggy songs, but they do have plenty of good ones.

Citizen Erased or Space Dementia from Origin of Symmetry. Both extremely cool tracks. From Absolution I'd have to pick Butterflies and Hurricanes. As for Black Holes, Knights of Cydonia and Hoodoo. Resistance and 2nd Law are crap for prog, except maybe Exogenesis from the former. 
I consider drone metal to be progressive...

Well I mean... it wasn't as progressive as it could've been. Muse has really gotten caught up in their bombastic alternative ways lately, more comparable to Queen than anything. Their older prog roots with extended technical passages in Origin aren't as visible as they were to me.

True - but sorry i wasn't referring to your post - more of an inside joke ;)

2nd Law is very bad.

Citizen Erased. My 2nd favorite: I used to hate "Unintended," but after repeated playings by my wife, it's grown on me. Sure, it's an utterly ridiculous track. But that's kind of the point. It's so medieval - that makes it proggy/folk, I s'poze.

Only two people though. But I'm content.
