Death-metal punks go surfing in Terry Hall's gobsmacking video for Muse's Supremacy, which features some of the best original surfing footage ever captured for a music video - plus a pulsating performance by the band.

"The band's performance was shot in the most amazing house in the hills above Malibu. It was designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright's grandson Eric in the mid 80s but was never finished. It is this huge modernist, concrete shell that has the most amazing aspect looking out over the Pacific.

"The surf had been completely flat all week so we were insanely lucky that the biggest swell they'd had in two years coincided with the second day of our shoot. It was about 8ft - 10ft on the big sets and at times the surfers and cameraman were getting absolutely hammered. The conditions were so good that one of the best surfers in the world, Dane Reynolds, showed up."
