    Muse because they're not the total sell outs that GD became.

    Green day puts a great live show. But it is far from being my favorite band.

    Exactly. IMO, Green Day hasn't existed since Dookie.

    Muse.

    But they are different sorts of bands and feel were as Muse have improved and got bigger I've got bored of Green Day, if Green Days sort of music is more your thing there are much better bands out there.

    I don't mind change, but I dislike the direction they decided to go. It went against what I liked about them to begin with.

    Muse, because Green Day were a one-trick-pony, and other bands had already done that pony trick years before.

    There's a handful of Muse tracks that I thing are absolutely fantastic, but as a band they do irritate me. I'd like them a lot better if they didn't steal so many musical ideas from elsewhere, and if they didn't use so many backing tracks to play live.

    I don't think of the two as being so similar they'd be an either or but I prefer Muse. I haven't thought much of Green Day since Dookie.

    Also, there's the album art ;)

    I remember listening to Muse when Showbiz came out in 1999, and it was one of my favourite albums, possibly ever. And they were only around 19 when they recorded it, which is pretty amazing when you listen to it.

    After that, Origin of Symmetry came out and I was blown away by the guitar sounds and the general production of it, David Bottrill, who produced AEnima, recorded it, and you could tell. Another great album. Great artwork too.

    After that, they seemed to climb into Matt Bellamy's arse and sort of die there.

    Post-Origin Of Symmetry, I don't think they've really made much worth listening to. I've bought all their albums, bar The Resistance, and been more disappointed by each subsequent one.

    Muse always makes me think of you/your avatar.

    Neither.

    Myself I'm a huge fan of both bands.

    Talent wise, I think now, Muse is on top.

    But, I love both of em. Their albums are absolutely fantastic.

    Ditto.

    Pre Dookie Green Day definitely...but present time, Muse.

    Never liked any of Green Day's stuff. Mommy's boy faux punk rock stuff. Not my thing. I like Muse's early stuff however (Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry) so I'd say out of the two, Muse are best.

    Beatles or the Stones, MJ or Prince, Britney or Christina... and now Muse or Green Day? I never actually thought to compare their music, but as it happens to be I like them both. The more relevant comparison right now would be: Wayne or Kanye? ;)
