Muse, "The Resistance"

Muse, the British alternative rock band, has won the rock album Grammy Award for “The Resistance.” The followup to 2006’s “Black Holes and Revelations,” which was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize, “The Resistance” plays with themes of alien invasion and political conspiracies, as well as the usual love songs.

Muse’s fifth studio album beat out Jeff Beck’s “Emotion & Commotion,” Pearl Jam's “Backspacer,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ “Mojo” and Neil Young's “Le Noise.”

The Grammy Awards recognize outstanding work produced between Sept. 1, 2009, and Sept. 30, 2010. They are being presented at Staples Center and telecast on CBS. Check back for more on Awards Tracker.
