Ok here's the deal: I don't love Muse. I don't even really LIKE Muse. But I've never given them an honest shot. I'm creating this thread because a) I'm sure they'll be heavily rumored for Roo 2014 and b) I need you inforoovians to convince me that Muse is good, just in case they really do show up. I remember liking the first album, but I was wicked teen angst-y back then.
I was always more into Muse pre-Resistance, not that it was bad at all but they started going downhill for me since... Regardless their show is always fun, I've seen em twice... Id watch their Wembley 2007 H.A.A.R.P. DVD or their 2001 Le Zenith Hullabaloo DVD... they are both on youtube
I'm not a hug Muse fan, but I saw them a few years ago, and I was really impressed with them. Have thought for the past couple years that they would make a good headliner. But really, I don't care either way.

I've been watching some live stuff and there are certainly a few tunes I could get pumped on... Knights of Cydonia and Hysteria especially. I think they'd be a great show but I at the same time, I couldn't imagine them becoming a priority for me at Roo
I would love to see them at Bonnaroo. I really like a lot of their songs and videos I have watched of them live seem like they put on a great production in their concerts. I think I would consider cutting out a little early if there was a group I really wanted to see coming on after them so I could get a good spot but I definitely wouldn't be disappointed if they were a headliner.
I always kinda hated on them, calling them a poor man's radiohead. my wife is super into them though, and I went with her to a show. The stage set up was pretty sweet, they were engaging and really energetic (except for the 2 or ballady songs). the songs didn't deviate much from what I'd heard of their album counterparts. I have listened to them exactly zero times since I saw them, and I don't think I would pay to see them again. but if they headlined, I wouldn't skip their show, and would probably try to get into the pit for at least a little bit of it.
They do have a rabid fanbase, which is probably one of the reasons I enjoyed them as much as I did. It would be a great what stage crowd if it were anything like the show I went to.
