Muse singles chronology

"Plug In Baby" is a song by English alternative rock band Muse, featured on their 2001 second studio album Origin of Symmetry. Released as the lead single from the album on 5 March 2001, "Plug In Baby" became the band's highest-charting single when it peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart, until it was surpassed by "Time Is Running Out" in 2003.[1] Today, "Plug In Baby" is considered one of Muse's most notable songs, and has been featured on the live albums Hullabaloo Soundtrack (2002) and HAARP (2008). "Plug In Baby" is often praised for its opening guitar riff; Total Guitar readers voted the riff as the 13th best of all-time in 2004.[2] The beginning of the riff shows similarities to the toccata from Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565". Bellamy has also stated in a 2005 interview that it elaborates on the riff from DJ Shadow's track Organ Donor. The bassline has been noted as being very similar to that of Air's single Sexy Boy,[3][4] which was released 3 years earlier. "Plug In Baby" was first recorded as a demo in 1997, although it featured a different guitar riff. Total Guitar voted Plug in Baby the #1 ultimate guitar riff of the last 10 years.[5] In 2011, named "Plug In Baby" the 46th greatest guitar riff of all time, citing its "play on Bach's 'Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565'."
