The 2012 London Olympics have many an official sponsor, and now the Games have an official song. Muse‘s new tune, “Survival,” has been named the official song of the competition.
According to Rolling Stone, the track will play “during sporting sessions, as athletes enter stadiums and for the lead-ups to medal ceremonies.”
“It’s a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games,” frontman Matthew Bellamy says in a press release. “I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”
Muse’s new album, “The 2nd Law,” hits stores in September.
The orchestral intro is appropriately grand, and the lyrics are definitely inspirational. Listen below and tell us: What do you think of the track?
