Dubbed by the fans after its first appearance on the first gig of The Resistance tour in Helsinki, the jam was a reoccurring drum and bass jam on The Resistance tour. It is slightly similar to Osaka Jam and is often played before Undisclosed Desires.
During the jam, Christopher Wolstenholme stood on Dominic Howard's rising, spinning podium of the three-towered stage design. For the 9th November gig at the SECC in Glasgow, Howard and Wolstenholme were joined by a kilted bagpiper, named Count Taylor, who was standing on another of the podiums, playing an additional part. A pro-shot video of the performance was released by Muse as a Christmas present.
The jam is notable as the Warner/Chappell Music song catalogue adopted the fan given "Helsinki Jam" as the official title.
An instrumental jam making heavy use of the Kaoss Pad, played at a few gigs in 2006 and 2007. A newer Kaoss Jam was used at a number of festival gigs in 2010, introducing Supermassive Black Hole, and first debuting at Werchter.
Killing in the Name is a song written by alternative metal band Rage Against the Machine, one of Muse's strongest influences. It appears on their 1992 eponymous début album.
The main riff was played live by Muse during the Black Holes and Revelations European tour.
A piano interlude occasionally played before "Sunburn" during Autumn 2006 such as at Nashville War Memorial Auditorium.
Matthew Bellamy played the tune due to his love of Twin Peaks. During the Autumn 2006 tour of U.S.A. Muse watched DVDs of Twin Peaks on the tour bus. It was around this time that Bellamy used the music of 'Laura Palmer's Theme' as a piano interlude before Sunburn. The original can be heard here.
Also dubbed by fans as "Osaka Jam" because of a sound-check video played before an Osaka gig (Club Quattro 2004), this jam has a similar sound to the "Futurism" bass-line. The first known play of an early version of this jam was on the 16th of May 2000. It was played during technical difficulties in the past. At the Royal Albert Hall 2008 TCT gig, it was played whilst Matthew Bellamy returned from the organ after "Megalomania", who joined Wolstenholme and Howard for the last part of the jam.
Since Arena Monterrey 2008, it has appeared on set lists as "Bass Jam" or "Drum and Bass" and appeared on set-lists at most gigs in 2008.
