Muse's Olympics song now has a video

By now, you will know that Muse have written the official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games. It's called Survival, and here at Discopop Directory, we have been given an EXCLUSIVE look at Matt Bellamy's notebook, where he made all his notes for the lyrics.

Oh, alright, we made that up.

As a number of people have pointed out already, the lyrics are beyond corny. But I have some sympathy: Have you ever tried finding a rhyme for "decathlon"?

In any case, I suspect it'll be the instrumental version that soundtracks the key moments of the summer games. On radio, the thumping bombast and hell's choirs sound more over-inflated than Barclay's Libor rate (BLAM - SATIRE!!!!). But watch the video and suddenly the song makes sense. Cut to a montage of iconic Olympics moments, Survival is as rousing and propulsive as Bellamy and Co must have hoped.

Muse - Survival
