Analysis and Explanation

Unnatural Selection appeared very often on The Resistance tour, especially in 2009. This would be short-lived, however, as the song was excluded from 2011 and 2012 setlists. It wouldn't be until the end of the 2013 tour that it would be performed live again. It continued to be performed live far more frequently than other revived songs from around the same time.

For the Psycho UK Tour, Muse prepared Unnatural Selection to be performed, deeming it a fan favourite enough to bring it back to setlists. Unnatural Selection was performed at two out of the first three gigs in 2015, at both of which fans yelled for Assassin to be played instead. Muse listened, and replaced Unnatural Selection from that point onwards with Assassin. It hasn't been played since, but it was an option at the 2017 Shepherd's Bush Empire by request gig, and it's riff is still partially played as part of the 'Houston Jam' during the Simulation Theory World Tour.
