The video for Muse's official 2012 Olympic Games theme "Survival" has hit YouTube, and it's a montage of footage featuring athletes from previous Olympics. In keeping with the song's Muse-ly grand scale, the video has an expansive scope, spanning from black-and-white footage of long-ago sprints to more recent clips of beach volleyball, Michael Phelps, and, yup, dressage. The images are well-chosen, quickly edited, and should keep your attention throughout the five-minute anthem. "I'm gonna win," Matthew Bellamy theatrically repeats on the Queen-echoing mini-epic, as the athletes express the fuller array of emotions associated with sports competition. Again appropriately, the video ends with a torch, not a gold medal — the London games are still weeks away.
