Last night (Oct. 6), Muse brought their outsized sound to 'Saturday Night Live,' performing two songs from their just-released sixth album, 'The 2nd Law.' The British foursome served up 'Madness,' a shimmery, U2-style stadium jam (above), and 'Panic Station,' a Queen-worthy dance-rock party-starter, complete with slap bass and brass (below).

Reviewing 'The 2nd Law' for Diffuser.fm, John Tarpley described the album as "some of the most bombastic, bodacious rock 'n' roll audacity you'll hear anywhere, anytime." Saturday night, the band went as big as the 'SNL' stage would allow, though fans hoping for more bells and whistles -- and LED pyramids -- will have to wait until the band hits the road on their upcoming tour.
