The London Olympics will adopt Muse's new song "Survival" as the official track of this year's Games. The song will play during sporting sessions, as athletes enter stadiums and for the lead-ups to medal ceremonies.

"It's a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games," said frontman Matthew Bellamy in a release. "I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win."

"Survival" will make its radio debut tonight and will be available for purchase on iTunes shortly thereafter. Muse is set to release their next album, The 2nd Law, in September.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
