Yeah, definitely Muse at the moment, of mainstream acts at least.
Song titles like 'Map of the Problematique', 'Knights of Cydonia', 'Butterflies and Hurricanes' (not directly related to a theory but still
interesting@, 'Exo Politics', 'City of Delusion', 'Assasin', and most blatently, 'Time Is Running Out'.
I may be biased because they are my favourite band (and i've met them), but they do write about some very interesting topics. 'Take A Bow' is about
how our leaders 'will burn in hell, for your sins' and they have another song called 'Stockholm Syndrome', focusing lyrically on the disorder of
the same name.
Also, as mentioned, the live album HAARP, and the art coverwork forttheir last studio album 'Black Holes and Revelations' depicts four men
(supposedly designed to be the four horsemen of the apocalypse), sitting around a table on Mars, which links to the Cydonia song title.
Bellamy's lyrical writing is relatively simple but his subject matters are usually not - world events, the end of the world, hyperspace, technology,
religion, among other subjects. Many of his main ideas are set in a dystopian future, in which totalitarian governments control every aspect of
private and public behaviour, maintaining their power with political and forceful tactics such as widespread surveillance, state controlled media etc.
Freedom is out of the question, and the idea of terrorism can be placed onto any individual regardless of age, etc.'
