star Chris Wolstenholme was wary of allowing the band to be linked to the "" movie franchise - because he thought it may be uncool.

The British rockers have since credited their inclusion on the soundtracks with helping them find chart success in America - but bassist Wolstenholme wasn't always convinced they should allow their songs to be used. He tells the BBC, "I'm not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you've just got to get your music out there in different ways.

Frontman Matt Bellamy has previously admitted he's unashamed Muse's songs are used on the movie albums - because he's a huge fan of the franchise.
