Survival (4:17)

Cover of The 2nd Law

From The 2nd Law and 2 other releases

Matt wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It’s about total conviction and pure determination to win. According to the Survival Songfacts, Matt Bellamy told BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe that he had been approached to write a song about the Olympics in 2011, but the project “went away.” “Then when we were asked to play the ending ceremony,” he continued, “the song had developed so we got the Olympic people in to hear it and they said they’d love to use it as the official tune.”
