“Knights of Cydonia” – Muse


It turns out the Black Keys were not the first band to pay loving homage to the joys of paracinema in a music video. Muse’s video for “Knights of Cydonia” is a fake sci-fi, kung-fu spaghetti western from Europe (circa 1979) that would probably rank high on Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movie list if it actually existed. It doesn’t hurt that the song is an ultra-cool homage to 70s prog rock either.
