    Right guys. This is for fans of muse, the alternative, those who are sick of samey tunes at number 1 in the charts and those with 99p to spare and want a cheap LOL! You can also take part in something historic!
    On muse forums at the moment there is a campaign to get Citizen Erased to number 1. It was never released as a single and is a 7 minute prog rock classic, complete with screeching guitars, irresistable beat and piano ending. It is a true fans favourite.
    How can it get to no 1 if it was never released?
    Digital downloads.

    For more info, here is the official release:

    Members of Muselive.com and other fansites are trying to get Citizen Erased, possibly one of Muse's greatest tracks, into the charts.

    This is possible by paying for digital singles on sites such as HMVDigital, iTunes and Digital. We recommend iTunes.

    Download Links (Downloading can start NOW up until Sunday!)
    HMV Digital Download
    7digital ** Accepts Paypal ** Also counts for foreign downloads! Download
    iTunes Download

    Please, please help us out here! We'd love for Muse to get a chart entry on such a classic tune! If you're not from the UK, you can download from the 7Digital site (which also accepts paypal).

    Please also spread the word. E-mail / IM your friends and family, post it on your blog or any forums you visit - the more publicity the better.
    So to get a truly historic and extremely LOL number 1 in, spend just 99p and take part in something historic. Do it NOW and spread the word!

    Cheers

    Kind of like the sentiment, but it's already been done - Oasis fans already tried this with little success. And Snow Patrol fans with some success.

    Will probably download it anyway - can't hurt to give it a go

    Will download Old Town as well - and Zak Starkey deserves having his name dropped - he's a great drummer in his own right.

    People are predicting as well that when The Beatles go on itunes for the first time we could even get a top 10 of their classics.

    Download it from itunes, 7digital, or HMV.

    You know you want to. Only 79p.

    Check out the youtube ratings of the video that is promoting it.

    It still isn't in the top 100 of the biggest download store or HMV's But it is number 1 on 7digital It seems as though it has been tried for many bands since Billie Piper got into the top 10 and without Radio 1 backing, they have all failed. It doesn't help that Citizen Erased is a bit of a weird choice as Muse are a very popular band therefore it wouldn't be that great a LOL to see them top the charts. Sign me up for the campaign to get someone like Anal **** to number 1.

    Also won't happen if you ask me. They have an 8 times platinum selling compilation with 27 of the most well known songs on it and it can be found now for under £10. I don't see why someone would be waiting for more expensive DRM-filled versions of those songs. Maybe a few of the really well known songs will make the top 10 just from the huge Beatles fans but filling the whole top 10 is never going to happen imo as surely they aren't all rich/weird enough to buy 10 songs they already own?

    Fantastic chorus; though 'Sunburn' and 'Hyper Music' are better.
