[ROCK] MUSE- “Survival” Official Song for the 2012 Olympics


It’s a very exciting time of the year as athletes across the globe are gearing up for the 2012 London Olympics. And the this years Olympics wouldn’t be complete without an anthem to rock out to while athletes walk into the stadium, proudly waving their countries flag to Muse. The rock groups track “Survival” has been officially selected by the London Olympic committee to represent the games for 2012. It’s an interesting choice, as the song doesn’t really capture the glory of winning an Olympic gold in my book. I’m sure others will disagree, but I don’t care. On the other hand, I am digging the subtle hints of Queen that seem to be woven into the intro of the track. “Survival” is off Muse’s forthcoming album entitled The 2nd Law, which is set for a September 18 release date. Check it out below.

“We are very excited to announce that a Muse song, Survival, has been selected by the London Olympic committee to be the main official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Matt wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It’s about total conviction and pure determination to win.

The song will be played throughout the Games including when athletes enter the stadium, in the lead up to the medal ceremony and also as the theme for all international TV coverage.”
