On his morning radio show Beck gave high praise to the new Muse album and the band in general. He goes on to compare some of their lyrics to the George Orwell book 1984 and their warning that a one world government is coming if you don’t wake up, which happen to be similar views to Beck. Sounds more like Alex Jones to me.
By the end of the broadcast Beck was contacted by representatives of Muse wanting him to retract his statement. Beck jokingly apologizes for ruining their street credibility and then tells his audience to never listen to them or buy the records.
Listen to the segment from the show (includes rejection statement).
