Showbiz - 1999 Like I said before, Muse's first music video was for the song Uno which was off the album Showbiz. The song actually has two music videos, however after research there didn't seem to be a reason as to why.

|Narrative side to the music video|
Origin Of Symmetry - 2001 Muse's second studio album saw a release of new music videos and also an increase in the budgets due to their success from Showbiz. From this they could go to further lengths with the music videos and achieve a greater result.

An interesting fact about New Born!:When Muse played on the TV show "Live and Kicking" (ironic name!) the BBC producers asked Muse to mime the song. Instead they decided to swap Chris and Dom around to different instruments and Matt just proceeded to mess around. They have done this on countless occassions when asked to mime on TV shows and most notibly in 2009 when they all swapped instruments on an Italian show which can be seen here. They see the whole miming thing as a complete joke and pointless. They only use miming on music videos. I think some other artists today should do the same!
