RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE TAKES CHRISTMAS UK NO1 - F*CK YOU SIMON COWELL!!!
Not a serious story I know, but it made me smile.

I guess the Christmas number 1 slot in the UK isn't as big a deal as it was when I used to live there.

I guess that also has a lot to do with Simon Cowell and his hit show X-Factor buying the once coveted top spot for 4 years straight.


[link to www.cnn.com]

London, England (CNN) -- Rage Against the Machine has claimed the prestigious No. 1 spot on the British singles chart on the last Sunday before Christmas, marking the first time in five years the winner of Simon Cowell's "X-Factor" has not won.
Joe McElderry's "The Climb" came in second, beaten by a huge online swell of support for "Killing in the Name," backed by a Facebook group with nearly 1 million members.
It was the first time a group had ever won the top slot based on downloads alone, BBC's "The Chart Show" said.
Tracy Morter, one of the founders of the Facebook group backing Rage, said her response was "shock, really."
"You don't actually think it's going to happen, and we just want to make sure Joe knows it wasn't personal against him and hope he has a wonderful Christmas," she said.
The Facebook group also raised about 63,000 pounds ($101,829) for the homeless charity Shelter, she said. The group had "nearly a million people -- we're 3,000 off a million," she said.
The group vowed to download "Killing in the Name" starting earlier this month to make it the No. 1 single in the country on the Sunday before Christmas.
It might seem like a frivolous contest, but hundreds of thousands of pounds -- and a place in history -- are at stake. A Christmas No. 1 enters the history books, exciting passion, disgust, joy and, yes, rage.

A 15 year old song hits number one, beating a manufactured garbage song from Simon "the manufacturer" Cowell's current karaoke "artist". What a great story!

There's Simon Cowell and there's Rage Against the Machine...and then there's REAL music.

Who gives a flying fuck about "charts" anymore?

Huge publicity stunt to distract from the real world... and real music

Why don't you all REALLY rage against the machine and see it for what it is... bullshit

yeah Durst is a fucking tard. I can't believe he's like the vice pres of Interscope. He and his band are one of the worst bands of the last 20 years. Horrible, terrible band.

Limp Bizkit only got famous because Korn helped them out. If it wasn't for Korn, Durst and his shitty bandmates would still be playing dive bars.

The real rage against the machine was Pearl Jam. No label, no stadium concerts.

Rage are tools... big talkers, when pu$h come$ to $hove the get on their knees and give the machine a wet blow job.

Well if it is on SyCo then Cowell will still be smug.
The best thing to do is this, and this is what should be done if you hate manufactered music.
Boycott watching the X-Factor, American Idol and so on. Less viewing figures will make sure the show fails.

It's not the same label, RATM is Epic whereas Cowell's is called SyCo, both of the labels are owned by Sony BMG so if anyone profited it's Sony.

It was never about the money people just pissed with the latest X Factor karaoke stars dominating christmas number one.

 Quoting: Doomorrow



Rage didnt set up this stunt, so quit fuckin' bashing them. Someone else decided to throw their song up against simons pride and joy. If you dont like RATM thats fine man, but calm the fuck down.

It wasnt about preventing him from making money, you retard. It was about showing him that the public can push his shit in if they really wanted to.

Would you be happy if it was some indie band that was used instead of RAGE?

And saying RAGE isnt real music? What are you basing that on, just their popular singles? Cause i know youre not calling their whole catalogue FAKE music.

May i ask what you consider real music??? Dont tell me youre an old man whos bitter that his faves are all long gone...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS YOU SONSOFBITHCES.
