With the 2012 Summer Olympic games just weeks away, details about the games continue to rush in. It was just announced that British rock sensation Muse's song "Survival" has been chosen as the official song of the 2012 London Games.
Muse was formed in 1994 and since then has released five studio albums, with their sixth album set to release this September. Muse’s "Survival" will be broadcast each time athletes enter their prospective arenas and before each individual medal ceremony. It is a great honor to have a song chosen to play at the Olympics, and this year, along with Muse, pieces by some of our other favorite musicians will be featured as well. We can also look forward to hearing pieces by Elton John in collaboration with Pnau, Delphic, the Chemical Brothers, and Dizzee Rascal. All these artists join an elite club of musicians who have previously had their pieces chosen for the games. Previous Olympic songs include pieces by Björk, Gloria Estefan, and Celine Dion.
The 2012 Summer Olympics commence on July 27 and we can’t wait for all the surprises! GO USA!
