"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 [Bellamy, lead guitarist and singer] wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It's about total conviction and pure determination to win. We are honored that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe," the band wrote on their website.
