For the last few years, Simon Cowell and his latest xfactor winner have been topping the xmas charts. But now, a campaign to stop this pattern on facebook has started. The song picked to stop X Factor?

Killing In The Name Of, by Rage Against The Machine. Just under a million people people have joined the campaign. Rage's song has lots of swearing,some of you may remember it on GTA: San Andreas.



On Sunday night, Joe McElderry won this years X Factor. He released his debut single (if you dont count the annual X Factor song) on Monday.



So, which song is doing better?

Killing In The Name Of-Rage Against The Machine-no.1 on UK chart.

That's just silly. Couldn't they have at least picked something made this year?

Muse?
Them Crooked Vultures?
Alice In Chains!!!

Fucking RATM worshippers. You keep living in your early 90's rap metal world.


lol. Oh yeah. I'm aware of the irony that Muse rip off Queen, r Radiohead, and Depeche Mode, Alice In Chains were big the same time as RATM, and Them Crooked Vultures have John Paul Jones. No need to point that out. They were just the first mainstream rock releases that came to mind.

I don't remember an X Factor winner being beaten to No. 1 at Christmas. RATM seems to be better for me, doe.
edit. I remember this on Radio X.

Actually, they should have nominated that song instead of Killing in the Name.

I'm just about to waste less than £1 on downloading Killing In The Name because I haven't heard it for ages, last time was on Radio X on GTA: SA.

I remember Iron Maiden being the Christmas No1 in 1990 but whoever had control of the button kept them off the top spot until Christmas had passed. We had to listen to Cliff Richard that year I mean what mother wouldn't want 'Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter' blasting out from mainstream radio channels while they open their prezzies?

1; That's a cover. So it doesn't count.
2; The whole RaTM concept is stupid. You can't "Rage Against the Machine" when you are the fucking machine. What's the point of bleating that america sucks and capitalism is whorish when you not only live in California but are also owned by Sony? It's a sham and you all bought time shares.

2. Who gives a fuck, it's a name.
