There’s a lot to Muse that we don’t know about. One thing’s for sure now, they enjoy some good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll. You might not know it, especially since the band’s music is so subdued with effects and falsettos, but at its core, they’re really just a ballsy rock band, always amped to “rock out with their cock out.” While no genitals were exposed, the UK trio returned to Sydney, Australia this past weekend for the Big Day Out Festival, and with them, they brought one hell of a cover.

Paying tribute to the country’s native rock ‘n’ roll auteurs, Muse rolled out a ballsy cover of AC/DC’s “Back in Black”. They weren’t alone, either. Matt Bellamy can sing, sure, but when it comes to hitting AC/DC-like vocals, only few can succeed. Jim Breur comes to mind, but apparently he was busy (or too broke to fly over), so Jet’s own frontman, Nic Cester, had to make do. The result is a pretty fun time had by all, but really, were you expecting the Aussies to do anything else but rock out?

No. Definitely no.
