Muse win at the Olympics!

Rock titans Muse have had their song Survival chosen as the official Olympics single.

The new track will be played throughout the competition, and on all of the global TV coverage. Gosh, let’s hope we don’t get sick of hearing it.

Frontman Matt Bellamy said: “It’s a huge honour to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games. I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”

Inspired by sport? Makes a change from sex, drugs and rock’n’roll.

The news comes as several musicians claim they’ve been offered a flat fee of two hundred and fifty pounds for use of their tracks, during the event – instead of receiving royalties each time it’s aired.

We don’t know how much Muse are getting paid but they did get to carry the Olympic torch recently, so perhaps that was their reward.
