Let me put it this way:
If there isn't a Muse song in RB3, it would be a huge strategic mistake, period. The demand is clearly there, and whether after that Muse comes in the form of DLC singles, packs or even a full game, HMX and MTV need to make a statement (with RB3) that Muse is there.
I honestly don't see how Starlight would be the right choice, since if going solely by popularity and familiarity, Uprising and Resistance both fared better on the US and UK charts and both would arguably be (slightly) more suited for Rock Band.
And I enjoyed reading that Muse DLC/Marijuana legalization analogy, but I have an end-view quite different from that poster in that in both cases I don't let whiners influence reason. Yes, they are annoying, and should stop complaining all the time, but it doesn't change the fact that Muse DLC and legalization are both needed and overdue.

Anyway, I can't wait for tomorrow to see what awesome new tracks they have in store for us next week... *sees the Juanes announcement*... What the hell is this crap.
Having listened to it, I thought the Juanes track that will be in RB3 seemed like it will be pretty fun on guitar. If these tracks are anything along those lines then they should be quite fun.
On Topic: I'd like to see more Muse in RB, somehow.
What's really annoying is that on a game call RockBand, even Spongebob (decidedly not rock) has more songs than Muse. I mean seriously, what the hell is up with that?
As for everyone complaining about Juanes, It tells me one thing. MTV is trying to cut into the European market of music games. This Spanish pack could lead to bands in the UK... like Muse! The day draws closer comrades, but if they release Muse before Rock Band 3, I will be really really pissed, and though I will buy it and play it happily, I will be disappointed they didn't add Keys and harmonies!
