In the early 1990s, members of the band Muse have each in their schools. Establishment of Matthew Bellamy of Muse began when 14-year-old successfully passed the audition for admission Dominic Howard's band. When their bassist decided to leave, they asked their good friend, Chris Wolstenholme, to join and learn the bass guitar. Chris had refused, but finally decided to join. The band had recently changed their name a lot, such as Gothic Plague, Carnage Mayhem, Fixed Penalty, and Rocket Baby Dolls, until finally the name MUSE known today. Chronological order the band's name change is not clear, because MUSE gave inconsistent information in their interviews.
In 1994, still with the band name Rocket Baby Dolls and the style of gothic / glam, they won a battle of the bands competition locally. And not long after this, they changed their name to Muse, and began performing in clubs like the Cavern in Exeter.
After several years of building a fan base, Muse played their first gigs in London and Manchester. The band had a significant meeting with Dennis Smith, owner of Sawmills recording studio, based in Cornwall, England.
This meeting led to the first official footage MUSE, the EP self-titled using the inhouse label Sawmills, Dangerous.

Dennis Mills and helped build the company Taste Media music, created specifically for the MUSE (MUSE use this label for their first 3 albums). It is very beneficial for MUSE as they can maintain the uniqueness of their music at the beginning of their careers.
Although E.P. the second their success and acclaim, many British record companies were reluctant to back Muse, and many people in the music industry considers MUSE music too similar to Radiohead. However, U.S. companies realize MUSE Maverick Records show several times in the United States, and then signing them in 1998. Upon their return from America, Taste Media arranged deals for Muse record companies in Europe and Australia. John Leckie, who produced the album for Radiohead, Stone Roses, "Weird Al" Yankovic and The Verve, Muse become the first producer album, Showbiz.
The launch of the album was followed by the appearance on the tour supporting the band Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers in the United States.

Their second album, Origin of Symmetry, by Leckie as a producer too, contains music that is heavier and darker, with Wolstenholme bass voice, heavy and distorted. And songs like Space Dementia using classical techniques inspired by Rachmaninoff.

MUSE use more high sound Bellamy, the arpeggio rhythm guitar, and piano that sounds obvious, which is inspired by the movement of Romanticism, particularly the Russian musician Sergei Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.

This album is probably going to make the MUSE increasingly popular in the United States, but Maverick did not agree with Bellamy's vocal style (which is considered unsuitable for radio), and asked Muse to change some of their songs to be released in America. MUSE, rejected and left the record company Maverick, which resulted in the release of the album Origin of Symmetry in America (the album was finally released there on 20 September 2005).
After this album, Muse released Hullabaloo Soundtrack, a DVD containing their appearance at Le Zenith in Paris, France in 2001. Then together, they released a double album containing B-sides and a recording of the performance at Le Zenith.
