"Not so extended was Muse's abridged version of the official Olympics rock song, "Survival," the inevitable begrudging appearance of which was kind of like one of those American Idol coronation songs that everyone instantly hated but has to show up anyhow. Diving onto his knees like a true rock god as fireworks went off around him, singer Matt Bellamy did his best to pretend that he wasn't already embarrassed by this song that he will never live down, or that his guitar histrionics didn't seem shameful in comparison to the guy who'd be supplanting him in mere moments, Brian May."
I haven't read any recent interviews. Did I miss something as to where Matt is embarrassed by Survival. This song is going to be awesome live with the guitar breaks and just has potential for all out jammage at the end as well. American reporting really is quite annoying sometimes.
