Description

A live cover of the synthpop song originally composed by Gershon Kingsley that became popular in the 1970s when it was covered by Hot Butter, first played by Muse at the Seaside Rendezvous concerts in September 2009 as it reminded of them of a rollerdisco they once attended in Teignmouth. Muse performed at the French show Taratata. Muse were interviewed after playing their cover of Popcorn and Bellamy claimed that he 'Thought he would play something especially for them'.

This song was released as a b-side on the Resistance single, but on the muse.mu limited edition vinyl and digital B-side bundle only.

Live

Popcorn was rarely performed and was only played at the first five gigs of The Resistance tour. It was likely performed only for the Seaside Rendezvous gigs and then the following three gigs as some sort of treat to fans at the kickoff of the tour. The likelihood of Popcorn making a return to setlists is very low because of this as well as its status as a b-side. It was the last b-side to be performed live and the only one from The Resistance era to be performed.
