008: sounds like bond?

The classic Bond themes have a distinctive bombast - minor key ballads that crank up to huge, hauntingly dramatic moments. Here are its siblings with their big Barry-esque orchestrations and (one hopes) Bassey-like belting.

Muse - Supremacy

The Bond Supremacy

I'm not the first to make this comparison, just the first to post it.

English alternative rock band Muse has always had a yen for the anthem, but they really pump up the orchestral maneuvers for Supremacy. There's a lot of LedZep, a bit of John Barry, booming percussion, snare drum, buzzing base, noir guitar, strings, mariachi horns, the whole shebang.

The official video features zombie surfers, BMX bikes, goblets of what is assumed to be a delicious blood beverage, and other visual motifs soon to be tossed into pop-culture's dust bin. The cool design of this official lyric version, however, approaches an elegance worthy of Her Majesty's Secret Service.
