The band Muse has been chosen to provide the official song for the London 2012 Olympics. The very popular group were among those to carry the porch during its long tour of England. The song, called “Survival”, will play at official venues for the duration of of the games, including when the athletes enter the arena and right before the medals are awarded. It is almost guaranteed that you will hate it by the end of the summer.
If you don’t already. Have a listen:
Frontman Matt Bellamy made the announcement to the Associated Press “It’s a huge honour 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.”
Muse formed in 1994 and have sold 15 million copies of their albums worldwide. They include Dominic Howard on drums and bass player Chris Wolstenholme and are due to release their next album The 2nd Law in September. You can by the Olympic song on iTunes at 8PM, but I suggest you don’t, because it will be played to death this summer.
