Best Covers: Muse “New Kind of Kick”

Muse have momentarily paused their inquiry into on-stage levitation to release a new, Halloween-themed cover of The Cramps’ “New Kind of Kick.” The Tom Kirk-directed video resurrects the group’s spirit and style—Matt Bellamy evidently enjoys his role as Lux Interior, ass-shaking and crotch-thrusting with aplomb, while drummer Dom Howard makes little effort to tidy up his bloody nose. It’s billed as Muse’s “Halloween Special”; watch it below.
