Glenn Beck calls Muse’s Grammy performance ‘a call for revolution’

Right-wing broadcaster expresses his views on 'Uprising'

Right-wing US broadcaster Glenn Beck has described Muse‘s performance of ‘Uprising’ at the Grammy Awards ceremony as “a call for revolution”.

Beck, who broadcasts five days a week on Fox News and also hosts his own talk radio show, was speaking on air the day after Sunday’s (February 13) Grammy ceremony.

“You have basically a call for revolution by this group,” he said.

He added that he felt this was because the band were European. “Europeans have been degraded for a very long time,” he said. “Really, since the beginning of time. They have had very few glimpses of real freedom.”

Muse won the Rock Album award at the Grammys for ‘The Resitance’.

Beck and the band have had dealings in the past. The broadcaster, who had previously espoused his love for the band and their lyrics, said the trio had got their representatives to ask him to withdraw his support for the band. Muse denied this, then Beck claimed he had been joking.
