Cover Week: Muse

So, I searched far and wide to find one of Muse's songs being covered. Not many bands have the balls to even attempt to cover Muse. UK progressive metal band Threshold does, however. And they're probably the only ones. I respect them for it, and think their cover of "Supermassive Black Hole" is actually pretty good. They certainly made it their own and, in my opinion, that's a good thing because good covers aren't just carbon copies. I can't shake the feeling, though, that the singer has a classic rock vibe about his voice. It's heavier and more retro at the same time.
