Let's all go down to Trafalgar Square and Muse...

Hundreds of fans gather at the legendary British landmark and sing their arses off in harmony in what has to be one of the country's biggest fan-organized sing-a-longs. It's all going down at Trafalgar Muse Fans, and if you haven't guessed it by now, the band whose songs will be sung is the U.K.'s ever popular Muse. Now for us statesiders, this particular event is not the most practical or feasible way to spread the Muse love and give to charity at the same time. You can always donate directly to said charities, though (see previous link), or if you're a whack idealist like myself you could try and arrange your own mass rock and roll choir.

So I say let's do it! Of course, I need your help! What band (probably American, given the spirit of this) would create a great frenzy of blending voices? What city or locale would provide the perfect setting from which to sweep our harmonies to the four corners? What charities or causes should benefit from such artful pizazz? Give me your thoughts! Also, your tired, your weak, and your poor because in rock and roll no one loses.

What do ya say chaps? Care to spend a sunny day in the good ol' US of A singing like madmen (and madwomen) together for the betterment of our fellow human beings?

I would say that The Killers could create a buzz like Muse, although they do not have a large group of albums behind them like Muse, their songs would be easy to sing to...

The most obvious answer I think would be U2. However, I'm actually going to say (I almost wrote sing, but I suppose that works too) Green Day. Most of their lyrics are actually pretty simple and the latter stuff is definitely fist-pumping.

yoadrienne:

The Killers are a fine choice, but you do raise a good point about them being fairly new. But a Killers sing-a-long in Vegas would certainly be appropriate.

rytunes:

The major problem with U2 is that the band hails from Ireland, making Dublin the most apropos setting for such a fan event. Green Day is pretty solid though, that warrants further thought I think.
