Muse have stated that the copyright infringement lawsuit is ‘complete nonsense’.
Muse have been accused of ripping off their Exogenesis tracks from their 2009 album The Resistance by Charles Bolfrass who wrote a sci-fi rock opera of the same name in 2005
A spokesman for Muse says ‘The claim is categorically denied. It appears to be based on a ‘screenplay’ the band never received or saw, produced by someone the band has never heard of. It speaks volumes that the album in question was released a full three years ago – and this is the first that has been heard of these allegations.’
