Fabulous news for Muse fans. The band’s brand new song “Survival” has been adopted as the official song of the 2012 Olympic Games that will take place in London this summer. WOOOT!
“Survival” will be played throughout the sporting sessions in all London 2012 venues during the entire Games, when athletes enter the stadium, the lead up to the medal ceremonies and it will be made available for international broadcasters of the Olympic Ceremonies to use in their broadcasts. In other words, you will be hearing a lot of it!
The band appeared at the official London 2012 press conference today, launching the “Rock The Games” music program, which “Survival” is spearheading.
Muse’s Matt Bellamy said, “It’s a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games. I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”
