MUSE have announced their track Survival has been selected as the official song of the London 2012 Olympics.
The Devon-based rock band – who also carried the Olympic torch during the relay – will soundtrack the Summer games, including when the athletes enter the Olympic Stadium, at the medal ceremony and also as the TV theme for all international coverage.
In a statement, the band wrote: “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.
“We are honoured that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe.”
