Revealed – what bands were called before they made it big

Muse: Talk about being indecisive. They went from Gothic Plague to Fixed Penalty to Rocket Baby Dolls (the latter being used to compete in a battle of the bands, which they won). Once the band started taking themselves more seriously, they renamed themselves Muse (inspired by Bellamy’s art teacher). The guys also apparently thought it would look good on a poster.
