Wow, this is literally just some guy pretending to be filled with angst and despair whilst yelling the lyrics to House of The Rising Sun. Animals version is much better.

Here you can see, how you totally mess up an epic song. My ears are bleeding. Worst part is the beginning and the ending. And the instrumental part in between.

i relly like muse.... but the only thing they've done with this song is, they throwed it in the dirt and kicked the shit out of it.

OMG this is awesome!!!!! :O :O House of Rising Sun is one of my favorites and I never knew Muse had done its cover! This is the best thing ever!!

This cover is totally badass but the original will still always be better ( the guitar's pretty sick though)

This would be so much better if the vocals weren't being trampled into submission by the rest of the sound.  Why sing if nobody can hear it?

I like muse's vocals, but it saddens me that they use that techno instead of actual instruments.

I remember when my mother and I sang this.  I'm just so glad Muse covered this song, otherwise I wouldn't have had a bonding moment with me and my mother. Just the idea that old songs are being brought back and covered by an epic band like Muse is great.

fck sake this is horrible.  Muse is that band that has a hit.. gets a following.. and doesn't grow outside its demographic. This is absolutely atrocious. Just like Kiss fans, Im sure I will be demonized here!  Non-creative. Homogenized. Generic.  This is foul. Period.

odd, this song (not just this cover) got really popular just a bit ago, then it died out again
Report spam or abuse
All you music nerds out there... that claim to know so fkn much. YT 'animals house of the rising sun' Realize.. this song came out in 1964. Before the Beatles craze hit America. They started a sound. The Animals were absolutely critical in the shaping of Rock and Roll in America. Name another song that year that held such passion?

Actually this is a folk song, and has no origin. The Animals simply brought it into the light of public eyes.

I hate this cover. Muse is awesome i love them but... This is a bad cover. It sounds like his trying to sing like Kurt Cobain .-.

Not too point out the obvious but there really is no original this is a traditional. Meaning it has been sang by many people in many ways over the years most people think The Animals did it first when in fact they didn't it is much older than that.

Dear Five Finger Death Punch, THIS is a rocked out hardcore version of House of the Rising Sun.  It still has emotion, isnt flat as sh*t, is still a wail of self-damnation that the song has always represented from Ledbelly to Dylan to the Animals and beyond.  THIS is a good cover. Yours is an uninspired piece of commercialized radio-safe background sound.

Muse is ok. I love house of the rising sun, but this I don't like at all   it has no soul replicating the original. I know artist put their own spin on it because they play for fun and they want to enjoy themselves, but at least feel the soul Eric Burdon has in the song and try to portray it somewhat..like the lyrics, ya know, mean something? Words mean nothin without soul!

It was a blues that drunk men would sing in a bar, until they would see the sun. You people are idiots, it's a Traditional folk song. This melody is originally called  "Rising Sun Blues" Get your facts straight, before you people discuss something pointless that could be searched by google.
