Muse’s Matt Bellamy Says He No Longer Thinks 9/11 Was an ‘Inside Job’


Muse is a band that is somewhat popular among truthers due its messages alluding to conspiracies and resistance to corrupt powers. The band’s 2009 album The Resistance was perceived by many as a true anti-Illuminati manifesto with rebellious anthems such as Uprising. The lyrics of this song refer to dumbed-down masses being controlled by higher powers, a theme that is often discussed by truthers. Here are the lyrics:

Paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around
(So come on)
Another promise, another scene,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on)

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
(So come on)
Interchanging mind control,
Come let the revolution take it’s toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back,
It’s time the fat cats had a heart attack,
You know that their time’s coming to an end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

Another title of this album is entitled MK-Ultra, which describes mind control and how it is used on a large scale to control the masses. Here are the lyrics:

The wavelength gently grows,
Coercive notions re-evolve,
A universe is trapped inside a tear,
It resonates the core,
Creates unnatural laws,
Replaces love and happiness with fear
How much deception can you take?
How many lies will you create?
How much longer until you break?
Your mind’s about to fall
And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we’re falling,
We are losing control
Invisible to all,
The mind becomes a wall.
All of history deleted with one stroke
How much deception can you take?
How many lies will you create?
How much longer until you break?
Your mind’s about to fall
And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we’re falling,
We are losing control

Since the release of Resistance, Muse enjoyed mainstream success, even partaking in the MTV Music awards and the Illuminati ritual that was the 2012 Olympics Ceremonies. The band’s acceptance into the music business seems to have modified its message, turning it into something that is more in line with the rest of mainstream media. In a recent interview with Metro, lead singer Matt Bellamy stated that he did not believe that 9/11 was an inside job anymore – rallying himself with the official version of the story. Did the music industry get to him?

Muse’s Matt Bellamy says he no longer thinks 9/11 was an ‘inside job’

Muse‘s Matt Bellamyhas revealed that he no longer thinks the terrorist attacks which were carried out on the World Trade Center on September 11 were an “inside job”.Previously, the frontman had claimed that there was “massive evidence” to support theories that US authorities had either allowed the attacks to take place or had made them happen. In a 2006 interview with CMU, he stated: “There was a document called ‘Project For The New America Century’… which clearly says, ‘We need a Pearl Harbour-level event so we can have an excuse to invade the Middle East’.”

Speaking to the Metro, however, Bellamy said that his political views were “more nuanced now” and that he no longer believed in conspiracy theories surrounding the tragedy.

He said: “I don’t believe that any more, although there are lots of questions to be answered.”

He went on to add: “I still read a lot about political history, the influence of corporations and the military, but I make sure I’m reading from credible sources. I think my political views are a bit more nuanced now.”Discussing the band’s plans for their forthcoming tour dates, meanwhile, he revealed: “We have a symbolic upside-down pyramid suspended over us as we play. It will screen videos and images that relate to the songs. At some point, the pyramid will turn inside out and consume Dom ‘s drum kit. Then Dom becomes a ninja who starts battling with corrupt businessmen… I’m serious. That’s not a joke.”

So the idea of 9/11 being a false flag operation to justify military operations is not “credible” to Bellamy anymore? Maybe he should check out this video of Patrick Clawson of the influential Washington Institute for Near East openly calling for a false-flag operation to justify the invasion of Iran.

Bellamy has been threaten by a specific group of people in numerous times regarding the content of his music, only to find out how little did he care to please these people. Thus The Resistance was created as an obvious b***h slap to the face. In 2010, Bellamy's life started changing a bit with his new found love and towards the end of 2010 he was threaten again this time involving Kate and their coming new born, putting a big emotional burden on Bellamy and company. Muse was schedule to record new material around October but they were forced to rewrite some of the songs they had ready for their studio time. Finally, releasing 2nd law which is a departure from what The Resistance was lyrically, and portraying a Bellamy filled with dread, most notably on the song 'follow me'. Forced to show illuminati symbolism such as pyramids, all seeing… Read more »
So, have you seen this? I started listening to this band some five years ago and I reaally got into it, became big fan, listened to all of their songs, read a lot about the themes in their albums, like 1984, MK-Ultra, etc. Then came the 2nd Law (sixth album) and the Olympics and Hudson and dinners at the White House and also this. I used to deeply love this band, which influenced me a lot as a musician but also as a human being. However, the upcoming album, which will be released tomorrow, is making me feel disturbed. It sounds like a mainstream band of rockstars with the "anti-nwo" flag but actually making huge overtly shamless "illuminati" propaganda. Just saw the video of "The Handler". Yes, the new album "drones" is speaking directly about the conspiracy, but to me, the lyrics sound too dangerously "double-speak", the overall message… Read more »

Are You kidding me?
These lyrics pretend to be moaning, they 're not, they are foretelling, familiarizing.
Muse is an inside job from A to Z.

I disagree. Sure, he may not believe that 9/11 was an inside job, after saying he did, but if you listen to the "2nd Law" album, they still sing about these topics. For example, the song, Isolated System (although it's only an instrumental and you have to watch the video and have an understanding of thermodynamics). Yeah, the idea that he no longer "believes" it's an inside job might be sketchy, but I wouldn't call them sell outs yet. I don't really listen to them, nor would I call myself a fan, but my brother is a fan. That's my take on his statement(s).

"We have a symbolic upside-down pyramid suspended over us as we play." that's interesting, while they want to show the public that they are against the NWO and all that which is moved by satanic forces, they (probably inconsciusly, since ignorance and inconsciousness go together) actually show their ignorance, and therefore there adherence, in a certain respect, with these satanic influences. This becuase, as the Vigilant Citizien mentioned in the article "I pet goat II", the inverted pyramide is a sign of the inversion (now, the inversion of what is right and good is a feature of the satan) and the corruption of the symbols and ritual in the original freemasonry. Satan inverts every comand or order from God. This does not mean that when we see the pyramid in the upward positions means good. Unfortunately freemasonary has been corrupted and most of the lodges are become receptacle for corruption.… Read more »

You're spot on.

Every time I skim the comments section, I always see attacks on the person. Perhaps you commenters forget frequently that majority of these people (who are like us, just more "handled") are forced against the wall majority of the time: Choose this or be thrown from the "freedom train." That or before they even make it out, they're dragged back in and are directed in the direction they originally were in. There can also be the factor of internal struggle, endless possibilities. But yet I keep seeing slanderous statements, such as "what a little B***h." Yes, some of them do deserve that and more, but there are also certain people in the Entertainment industry who don't, (Michael Jackson, Britney, Whitney, Marina, Anna Nicole Smith, Marilyn Monroe, Etc). I find it funny how some of you commenters are so quick to judge them, but have you ever really truly been in… Read more »
I think this argument is really cheap. The majority of celebrities weren’t forced into doing this; they agreed to do it so they could become famous. Yes, it’s true that once you’re in it it’s hard to get out, but how do you think they got in it in the first place? Someone offered it to them and they accepted. And that goes for most of the people you listed also (Whitney Houston, Marina Diamandis, Anna Nicole, Marilyn… the only ones who aren’t to blame are M.J. and Britney, and that’s because they were forced into it as children). Don’t give me that “you have to walk a mile in their shoes” baloney. I don’t need to experience something firsthand to know that it’s immoral. I’ve never been a serial killer; does that mean that I can’t know whether killing people is wrong? And the idea that common people participating… Read more »
@Kiwi: Majority of them were, or do you not know about DID? Or about parental backgrounds? Honestly, if you think that they (the ones who don't explicitly flaunt signs and symbols like a good handful do) consciously said "yes," then your view is really narrow-minded. As for the "mile in their shoes," clearly you do, considering how fastly you condemn an idea. Are you so saintly that you think you're above weighing every possibility and looking at something from every angle? Did I ever say serial killer? Even once? I believe I was talking about the "celebrities," not the elite. Might want to re-read what I said instead of jumping head first into an "I'm right and you're wrong because I think your argument is really cheap" tone. As for the idea that common people participating in the elite's agenda and moonlight as shills, yes, it is plausible. And yes,… Read more »

Of course, there is always a 'reason' for anything. Quisling had his 'reasons' too, while Eichmann also had his 'reasons'.

Well , this guy gained fame by caterng to 9/11 deniers, but he thinks about nothing on betraying them once he has gained his paycheck. (sarc)That shows his character and conscience (/sarc).

Once he has served the forces' purposes, he will be dumped by them since he is not trustworthy to begin with. He might recant by then, but no one will listen to him or take him seriously.

Thank You VERY much for saying one of the big points I always try to say, Des!! I 99% agree with everything you said. (I don't agree that CERTAIN artists deserve to be called names or more importantly auto-labeled as "Obviously those ones are in with the elite." I disagree because YOU REALLY NEVER KNOW 100% when dealing with theories that are not proven 100% factual confirmed information) But I'm GLAD we do not agree 100%, I see that as a MAJOR problem with truthers. We all should form our OWN opinions, and discus/debate them maturely and rationally. We will get closer to the Truth if we think and express our own differing views, we May see something in a new light. This goes back to what Des began with, which I agreed: SO MANY just jump straight to conclusions and worse things, like schoolyard name calling. I notice here… Read more »


When I said I agreed with 99% of Des' comment, I was referring to his first comment. Sense then, it appears more comments have been said, that I have not read. Therefore am not going to comment on those yet or ever unless I feel it necessary.

MY novella comment was aimed at everyone who Wishes to read it & only the 1st paragraph had anything to do with the poster Des. Just wanted to make that clear, because I do not know what they are saying and do not wish to get caught up in others' personal debates (and Never argue) of their own; that is rude/not my business in my opinion.


I wish I had enough time in my day to read your "novel"

Is this that NSA artificial intelligence program writing this? It sounds like a computer wrote this with a polish by a human? That's what this is right?

If not it won't be long. This is basically a sprung trap police state already.

You should write a novel.

Stopped reading after the first paragraph. Thanks for the "book" though.

No one is forced. They choose. This guy wants to be famous more than to tell the truth.

thats not true…MJ and Britey Spears (and some other poor disney stars) are forced- a better word would probably be manipulated……please be sensistive to those who were too young to even have a choice.


Nice try. First of all you're aware about the game's rules, if you accept it as it is, so, you're not innocent at all, and once you're get inside there's no turning back. Most of them aspire to be rich and famous, I guess that they think they have to kill someone or pay with their own blood to gain it, but then, they only have to act like anti-christ followers, accepting all the evil ideas (they call ART) and so on… then they think "but we just have to this? what a piece of cake!!!"… devil is a kind of being very misleading, what is black, in principle for you, it's going to appear white, and if you don't ask 'cause you feel you shouldn't have to, 'cos after all you want to be a successful person in life no matter the cost, at the end, you'll drown with… Read more »

There's always the "Lauryn Hill" option…

ABC it's easy as 123…. apparent he learned him some knowledge… illuminaughty don't exist

They love me like I was a brother
They protect me, listen to me
They dug me my very own garden
Gave me sunshine, made me happy

Thanks for sharing, I have gained more information

I'm here to read about the truth, not to insult talented artists. Part of the chains or not, the insults aimed towards Matt B. are incessant and totally worthless. Some of the people on here appear to be almost like lunatics with their aggressive comments and "THERE'S ONLY GOOD AND EVIL" attitude. I'm saddened by it. We are all human beings, after all.

That video of Patrick Clawson calling for a false flag provocation attack to start a war with Iran is nothing but a major psy-op aimed at brainwashing the American people into thinking that false flag attacks are morally OK and simply an innocent measure that must be taken to promote the greater good of humanity. Anyone who can't see that this man is acting and playing a part is absolutely as blind is they come. There was nothing normal about this briefing at all…. NOTHING!!! This is all made clear by his obvious amateur acting which he probably spent hours practicing, to his little bullshit pow-wow with the other scumbag sitting down, to his little history lesson of all of the other declassified false flag attacks carried out by the New World Order (he failed to mention 9/11, who would'a guessed!?), and to his fake transparency which goes against everything… Read more »
Hmm. Matt is a very smart man so it's sad to see this happen. They're latest album was so rubbish in comparison to their first few In fact they've gone backwards since absolution in my opinion. Feel as if they are definitely being restricted and resistance was a last effort for the band to say what they wanted hence the major change in music style. The smart thing to do wouldn't be to continue promoting what is right when your life has probably lyrics been threatened they are capable of a lot. Could cut you off financially or almost anything. Having a child and wife I think is his weak point and they would target that. Publicly he may say he no longer believes these things but privately I think he is doing all he can for people and himself. Music industry is incredibly twisted. We're so easily manipulated l.… Read more »

Damn, still love muse, no doubt that they were threatened. We still love you Muse

Oh my God! Ron Paul doesn't necessarily believe 9/11 was an inside job (he refers to it as blowback either,, so that must mean he's also an illuminati puppet!

(he refers to it as blowback) either,* to correct myself before the grammar Nazi's come.

I'm glad he came to his senses

Those who refuse to question the gaping holes in the official 9/11 story, whether the overall story be true or not, and the obvious inconsistencies in Larry Silversteins revelations, whether he is trying to state the truth or not, do not deserve the liberty that they do not fight for. Also those who do not seek the truth, be it different from the official narrative or not, are part of the problem, as opposed to part of the solution, and at the same time are possibly doing the many victims of 9/11 a disservice by possibly allowing the deaths of these people to be in vain.

Please friends, serously consider this… It just dawned on me that as we are all fighting the good fight, all this focus and sifting of data, in turn, is quite possibly programming us en masse as well, just not in the same direction that the elitist's agenda insiders are tuned in to. This, in turn creates a division, or duality, and that, as history immemorial has shown, always leads to utter and total disaster! This was the seed of the war in heaven, the birth of good and evil, down to such trivial and anger inciting distractions as bi- partisan politics! The greatest danger is to lose your objectivity and immerse yourself in the battleground of the emotional mind. Remember, if you will, the old adage, divide and conquer, so as we earthlings devour each other with sensory illusions of grandeur and valour to counter- balance and oppose, the ones… Read more »

I said before the propaganda technique is to sometimes, gradually change thinking of people w/ misinformation , but in this case they just dropped it and denied 9/11 inside job . So it's either they NEVER believed it or somebody had a conversation w/ them and told them , show is over if you don't drop the 9/11 inside job talk .

My sense is given how powerful and in CONTROL the " Entertainment " Industry is of these artist , they know from get go what not to say or areas not to touch , so much of the so called ANTI Illuminati Artists are just controlled opposition .

I've been a Muser for over 5 years now. I've been to one of their concerts, watched every Muse interview I can find, and know every song by heart (okay, I admit I sound like I'm brain washed here haha. but hear me out.) Muse is what got me into conspiracy theories. Muse is what led me to sites like this. Lots of people have said that since Dom once said "the monty python humor" and act as if this means they're laughing at conspiracies…well if you've actually listened to a majority of Muse songs, you'd know what he was talking about…they're amazing songs, but some of it is just sort of over-the-top. it makes you smile out in public because it's just so fun and awesome. listen to Knights of Cydonia, or Unsustainable on the bus…during the OHHYEAHHH moments, you can't help but smile, and it's the sort of… Read more »

I am a "truther", but i simply can't BeLIEve that "9/11 was USA/white reptilian Bush carried Job"

Let's suppose that 9/11 was done from MOSSAD… what did they achieve? They simply commited cultural/national suicide.

Before 9/11, america was united nation (now is divided), america was wealthy (now is crumbling), Israel was "the good guy" (nowadays you can't see from mainstream/left-wing medias something positive about Israel), the jews had huge power (nowadays it's the growing arab/islamic influence. People can get arrested for daring to criticize their religion)

The main goal of "Al-Qaeda" was achieved. USA attacked the arab world… and this radicalized and united all arabs. Before 9/11, the muslims were divided… now they are like collective being.

So, truthers are cool but i never will understand the "9/11 was inside job" thingy

It may be possible that the article in question is a complete fabrication or he has been misquoted, I sometimes read the Metro as its given away free on public transport, and to be honest I wouldn't believe anything I read in that newspaper.

About two years ago they had Lady Gaga as a guest editor, I think that speaks for itself regarding the credibility of Metro!

yeah the song "madness" is not muse at all. It looks like its time to wipe them off my "safe" band list…the White stripes are the ultimte anti illuminati band tho to my knowledge. Just watch the video for seven nation army with a VC state of mind!

Muse Why you have to Lower Yourselves For Worldly Pleasure…. Majorly Dispapointed Fan! My Respect For you Went Down at Rapid Pace. May The Good Lord Forgive You 🙁

Just another souled out (and permanent) guest at the Hotel California. Such a lovely place…………………………

He does and says whatever he feels will make money.

he says "but I make sure I’m reading from credible sources". and whom would that be my boy??? all the media is owned by the elite. very few independent media sources left

It's funny that the media makes his change of opinion a "newsworthy" idea, wanting to call attention to it. In the scheme of things, who cares if he believes 911 was an inside job or not–is any of this newsworthy or relevant to his music? The little fragments of irrelevant stuff the media puts out is disgusting and it shows they are moving an agenda along.

To be honest, the first song I heard I knew they were laughing at people not trying to spread truth. I do no think that any of them ever started with good intentions. The term 'misinformation' became real other words.

I think they want to get work again that's why he's said it… the craving for fame and fortune must really be something to sell your principals down the stream…. just to get gigs and media coverage….

THEY SUCK FOR TEAMING WITH THE ILLUMINATI NOW!! If they had God they wouldn't not have to fear a group of humans worshiping a angel gone bad! I'm done with all these stupid controlled artist I'm listening to Nujabes for now!

They are such sell outs! They use to talk for the little man now they are against him and working with the illuminati scum! I bet the illuminati threaten them so they got really scared and changrd their story. Lol they are pathetitc to me now! See if they were on Gods side they would know not to fear no man made group that worship an angel gone bad. Watever I'm just bought done with all these stupid controlled artist! I just gonna listen to Nujabes now!

that sucks, when you're in the industry, one must do what they must to survive and thrive

Of course, it's Kate Hudson and her illuminati s***e friends that made him back down.

Thanx VC, excellent article, again.

Good thing I never really heard their music. Yeah, I heard it on the radio and it sounded empowering but I don't take new music seriously what-so-ever.

I flat out refuse to buy into cable TV. Since I'm TV and cableless I rarely watch bias news stations or anything in that matter. Most of the things in the news are just stories and exploitations of people's misfortunes. Great, let me sit around a glowing box and be glad about how that isn't me. Folks, we need to pick up books and learn how to sew, grow, hunt, build, cook, and start fires. Even if you don't need those skills in your lifetime, you need to pass them down to your family. They will need them.

If i was you, I'd rather just focus on God and following His ways… instead of focusing on the Illuminati. In fact, there is no one, one able to control what God is doing, and God, will not let the NWO happen. In fact, it's merely a device that Satan implanted… even people who know about the Illuminati are under Satan's control, whether you like it or not.

"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them" – Ephesians 5:11

i don't get it. he had a what.. 8 year long relationship with an italian girl without ever getting engaged, and now he has a kid with this chick after just a year, and then they get engaged.

doesn't sound like him. she must've got pregnant on purpose to keep him or something.

Now, that I read all comments, I want to explain why this is whole thing a turning point to consider. I am working for and with the independent music industry since 17 years and I can say that there are things that can happen without help from "Up above" and some things just won't happen if the major company does not want it to happen. All of you should keep in mind that the major labels are just a tiny and unimportant part of big corporations they belong to. It is not about the money they can make. They decide that "ullallagagaga" is now to be no1, so it is. The major music industry is an important tool to control and direct the youth. And nowadays, the "youth" is considered to be the 0-60 years old. These are the facts that brought me to directly ask for coverage from vigilantcitizen:… Read more »

Thanks for picking up the topic, as suggested. I really appreciate it.


the album the resistance is clearly Orwell's book 1984 .. anyone who read this book can notice it. In fact the lyrics of some songs speaks about "though police" and "united states of eurasia" ( it is the title of one song) ..

Flite 93 was headed for the capitol building and was shot down by our own govt.

If it was an inside job, there would have been no plane headed for an unacceptable target in the first place. So good on Muse to have the courage to do an about face.

Someday soon my dream will bloom

and all who fail at their first fight

we all know where they sleep at night

stay strong in faith and truth will show

This sucks, you think there is one person who can stand up to this and they dont. Just like a puppet he prances around a sell out indeed i agree. When i come out i guarantee they can threaten to kill my whole family and still i will stay true to my lord god almighty, this isnt over

Maybe he realised it wasn't an inside job because he learned that it was Israel –

I've always liked The Muse about 125%. I generally like 25% of their music on any given record, and 100% of what they are about and where they are coming from. Now take away their support for the Truth of a matter, or matters, well then that puts us back to 25%. The rest of everything they are is garbage now. Period.

"The 2nd Law will find them playing beneath an inverted pyramid of LED screens: an upside-down version of the "all-seeing eye" beloved of conspiracy theorists. "It's turning the power structure of the world on its head," Howard says matter-of-factly."

Perhaps we misinterpreted somewhere there? I don't think they've turned around like what you guys are saying.

MUSE are what is termed "controlled opposition", they make you think someone is speaking out on your behalf so u don't have to do anything… and u buy their records…thinking they are cool.. They are all the same.. Muse are just another souled out sell out band on the Illuminati fast track to the New World 0rder.

All of these puppets like Alex Jones and Mark Dice work for the illuminati. They reveal the truth so people can get angry and start a revolution. That's when they will have a reason to in force martial law. That's why all of these symbols and subliminal messages are so blatant. They actually WANT you to know they exist. That's their whole plan.

Muse is a puppet for the illuminati. The reason those songs were written was for people to wake up. The reason all this "truth" is coming out… is for us people to revolt. They want us to find the truth and start revolutions and riots. That's when they will have a reason for martial law. Then all your freedom will be gone. There's nothing, absolutely nothing us people can do. They have planned this since 1776. Everything is ready. The troops are ready to invade. They are waiting for a revolution to break out. The only thing to do is to repent and turn to God. We can't save ourselves. The Bible has prophesied about this in revelation. It's gonna happen wether we want it or not.

Omg, I've never seen such an over-reaction.

It was a statement, guys. All he said was that his opinion has changed slightly, he didn't say "OMGZ NO IT WAS AN ACCIDENT LOL OBEY DA ILLUMINATI LOL". He even said there's still questions to be answered. They've also been trying to get out of their record deal for yeears now, so, uh…

Seriously, all you have to do is listen to their music and have a look through their old blogs to see they're legitimate.

So let's imagine…that I'm the frontman/lyricist for a band many of you may like. I'm also happily married, never had a drug problem, and generally have a hard time getting all riled up about, you know, the comfortable existence I inhabit. But, my band comes up with these killer rock riffs and I gotta somehow come up with lyrics that match the music's ferocity. Well, since broken hearts and dragon chasing aren't there for me, I have trouble finding…inspiration. So I troll sites like this and Alex Jones and get ideas from it about the police state that's being thrust upon us and how the illuminati is trying to force their worldview on us and blah blah blah. Then I convince myself it's true. Then I write about it. And then when I'm satisfied that the lyrics and vocals are ferocious enough to reflect that horrible invisible world out there,… Read more »

The article was in the Metro newspaper a freebie newspaper given out on public transport and no better than the Sun or the Daily Mail. Facts are twisted to promote the Metro's agenda and often articles are stolen from other sources and reworded in a way to catch attention. I feel nauseous every time I read the Metro has it's very much in favour of promoting the latest gadgets and the transhumanist and hive mind agendas.

Little B***h
