Analysis and Explanation
Eternally Missed was performed just four times upon its live debut. At the time, the band viewed the song as one of their finest and were keen to show it off at the last few dates of 2002. Their opinion had changed in the studio, with Matt once saying he thought the song wasn't even good enough to be a b-side. Thankfully, however, the song was released as the b-side to Hysteria, with the band never playing the song live again. Matt in 2018 cited Eternally Missed as an example of a song that the live audience didn't particularly care for, which is one of the reasons the song wasn't kept around in setlists.
Because of this, it stood as one of the rarest live songs. Regardless of the band's beliefs, the fans highly appreciate the song; in a poll of 500 fans conducted in November 2015, out of a total thirty songs that had not been played since The Resistance era, fans voted Eternally Missed as the eleventh most requested song to make a return to setlists.
Aftter nearly sixteen years, the song was finally performed again when fans voted it to be included in the Paris Cigale 2018 setlist.
Eternally Missed is the Muse song with the longest gap between performances of almost sixteen years (a record previously held by Host: 1997-2012).
