Muse have spoken out about the honour of having a mural of them painted in their hometown, and their surprise that no one has yet graffitied a penis on it.
The painting was by street artist Mos, and is a silhouetted impression of a promo photo from the band's 2nd Law era, showing the trio laughing.
Speaking to Q, drummer Dom Howard said "I'm surprised no one has drawn a penis on it", before frontman Matt Bellamy addde "oh yeah, we definitely would have done that!"

The Devonshire town of Teignmouth is where the band met at school in their teens, and famously returned to play a huge homecoming show for the BBC in 2009. Watch a documentary about the gig below.
Elsewhere in the Q interview, Bellamy admitted that Drones was a move towards being 'more human, saying it "was quite difficult for me to make at certain points. My personal life went through a bit of a shift" - speaking of his split from actress and former partner and mother of his child, Kate Hudson.
"Look, we had a great relationship, she’s a lovely person, we’re better off as friends," Bellamy said in an interview this month. He did state that their separation had no specific influence on their upcoming album, Drones - but rather that it led him to 'reconnect with any time he felt alone or outside'.
"It’s difficult for me to pinpoint anything on the album specifically about that," he continued. "Except that when someone suddenly finds themselves outside of a relationship, they ponder things, they think over the points in their lives when they think things didn’t go the way they expected them to.
"It’s the fact that I reconnected with all the points in my life where I felt alone or outside."
