Muse Admits That They Sold Their Souls by Appearing on ‘Twilight’ Soundtracks
Apparently, expressing gratitude isn’t big on Muse‘s list of priorities.
The British band, who have contributed to all three of the soundtracks for the Twilight vampire movie series, have apparently lost their own souls, after providing the musical soundtrack for soulless-but-beautiful creatures of the night for so long.
At least, that’s how the band’s bass player, Chris Wolstenholme, sees things. During a recent interview with the BBC, Wolstenholme admitted,
“I’m not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you’ve just got to get your music out there in different ways…It’s very difficult in America because you don’t have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national…You have to take every opportunity you get over there and sometimes you have to sell your soul.”
Oh, and as for his opinion of the movies themselves? The bassist says that he watched 2008’s Twilight, but hasn’t bothered with the two sequels because they’re not his “cup of tea.”
Ouch! Vampires might not be Wolstenholme’s bag, but obviously he’s a master of biting criticism.
So…y’think they’ll be invited back for the Breaking Dawn soundtrack? Share your predictions in the comments section.
