"Survival" Song Details

Survival by Muse Piano Sheet Music

"Survival" is a song by the English alternative rock band Muse. The track is the first single from the band's sixth studio album, The 2nd Law. It was announced on 27 June that "Survival" would serve as the official song for the London 2012 Olympics and was released following its premiere on BBC Radio 1.

In 2011, Matthew Bellamy was asked to compose a song for the London 2012 Olympics. According to him, the project then "went away," though a song was written regardless. Bellamy and his fellow band members brought the song to Olympic staff, who "said they'd love to use it as the official tune." The track, Bellamy noted, "expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win."

"Survival" will be broadcast when the athletes enter the stadium and in the period before medal ceremonies; international broadcasters will also be playing it while reporting on the Games. In addition, the song will be featured on the album London 2012 Rock The Games. The song was also premièred live during Muse's live set for the London 2012 closing ceremony. However NBC, the channel that broadcasts the Olympics in the USA, did not broadcast their set.
