"Stockholm Syndrome" is a song released by the English rock band Muse from their third album, Absolution. The song also appears on the Absolution live DVD and was released as a download-only single through the official Muse website. The download also came with the artwork. The video appears on the "Time Is Running Out" CD single, and was shot using a thermal camera. A different video was made for the song's release in the US, depicting the band playing the song in a fictitious talk show.
In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Stockholm Syndrome" at number 44 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

In concert, the song is often played teamed with "Plug In Baby" as the two songs have similar tempos. One example of this is during the second Wembley performance. However during The Resistance Tour, this song has usually been paired with the first part of the band's Exogenesis Symphony due to the similar tuning. Normally in live performances this song is followed up with by instrumental jams which can last up to 5 minutes on some occasions, most notably at the band's headline appearance at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival.

Lyrics and meaning

Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in an abducted hostage, in which the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger (or at least risk) in which the hostage has been placed. This is the song's theme, as reflected in lyrics such as, "This is the last time I'll forget you/I wish I could." The song is from the perspective of the abuser. In the first verse, "I won't stand in your way / Let your hatred grow / and she'll scream and she'll shout and she'll cry / and she had a name, yes, she had a name," the individual’s girlfriend is hysterical and he deliberately avoids consoling her, which intensifies her emotional distress. He also reminds himself/listeners in the last line of this verse that she had a name. Many people are counseled to reveal their name and other personal information if ever a victim of violence, because it could arouse a shred of compassion within the attacker. It is harder for the attacker to detach themselves from the reality of their actions when they are forced to acknowledge that the victim is a real human being. The next verse again illuminates the narrator’s original stance about calming his girlfriend, but the line, “And I won’t hold you back,” is referring to his predicition that his girlfriend will take the fight to a physical level with him, and he refuses to protect her from himself. All of this leads to the classic nature of abuse relationships. “let your anger rise /and we'll fly and we'll fall and we'll burn/ no one will recall, no one will recall.” The couple starts fighting and he describes the escalation in 3 physical verbs, 2 of which, “fall” and ”burn,” allude to the destruction that has taken place. No one will recall means that neither of them will talk about it, it is too painful to admit now, it has become routine. The climax grips the soul, crying out, “This is the last time I'll abandon you / And this is the last time I'll forget you / I wish I could,” which expresses that the narrator neglected his girlfriend in the past. Many people believe that he is trying to say that those days are over and that he won’t do those things again, but in reality, he is doing them at that moment in the song. He is explaining, I am choosing to abandon you right now and I am choosing to forget you right now. He is ending the relationship to end the abusive cycle, and it would be much easier for both of them if he could forget her, as portrayed with,"I wish I could," because she refuses to throw in the towel and leave him,even after all the violence and pure agony. She might even feel closer to him because of the simultaneous emotions he caused her to experience. She is a victim of violence and is experiencing Stockholm Syndrome. People that have never been abused by a spouse might not understand this theory, and hopefully never will have to, but when someone you care about consistently hurts you, they stimulate a vast array of emotions at the highest intensity. Some of these include sadness, terror for your life, humiliation, and the worst of all, disappointment. The disappointment is what really messes with your mind because it hurts so much to give up hope and admit that this person will never change and will never stop. Every time a fight escalates to the point that they hurt you, you are shocked all over again, as if it had never happened before, all because you somehow convinced yourself that all those times were flukes that you might have caused, and they aren’t that person, even if it has already happened a hundred times before. The last line of the song is the most important because it refers to this woman that should feel so defeated, but instead, she has hope in life, “Look to the stars /Let hope burn in your eyes,” because hope for a better future is the only feeling that will drown out her disappointment about this truth that she already knows, but can’t accept. There is no hope for her future with this man. The emotions she feels for him, although powerful, are confusing, because as worded in the last line, ”And we'll love and we'll hate and we'll die, All to no avail, all to no avail,” she believes she loves him so much, it would probably have led to him killing her, but she also knows she hates him, which misleads the listeners into thinking that she is the abusive one, as portrayed in the first verse. It is all useless though, because the feelings were created by crippling pain that consistent abuse causes, and that made her appreciate her life like never before. Feelings of this magnitude get misdirected because she associates her abuser with the enlightenment she obtained from the trauma, and it is difficult to distinguish this person's intentions from their result. Stockholm Syndrome.

The syndrome is named after the Norrmalmstorg robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg, Stockholm, Sweden, in which the bank robbers held bank employees hostage and the victims became emotionally attached to their victimisers, and even defended their captors after they were freed from their six-day ordeal.
