Playing their new hit "Pressure," Muse served up a thunderous performance on The Tonight Show on Tuesday night (Nov. 13.) Kicking off with a blistering guitar riff, a blast of brass from a four-man horn section and flashing pink spotlights, singer/guitarist Matt Bellamy rolled into the staccato lyrics, "I'm trapped and my back's up against the wall/ I see no solution or exit out/ I'm grinding it out, no one can see/ The pressure's growing exponentially."

The lead single from the group's latest album Simulation Theory is a prog rock tour de force, complete with crackling drums, keening backing vocals from bassist Chris Wolstenholme and a gigantic arena rumble that the trio managed to shrink down to studio size for the show, without losing any of the song's enormous sound.
