RATM for #1!!!
I actually can't believe it! Rage Against the Machine for Xmas number 1 is the best and funniest thing I've heard all week! They're currently holding fort on top of X Factor Joe right now so let's make this happen! I've bought my copy. Best 29p from Amazon I've ever spent!
This isn't some contrived stunt from RATM or their label. Its just real music fans making a point about how typically boring and obvious this particular number 1 can be. Of all the bands to be chosen by rock fans to challenge this, it couldn't be more apt for one of the most 'power to the people' orientated bands there has been in the last 20 years. Genius!! Love it and love Rage. This song is almost 20 years old and it still sounds amazing!
Can't wait to see the Xmas day Top of the Pops now (which we're on by the way, ha!), and how it will be dealt with or what will be shown.
Hopefully Simon Cowell won't rush out and buy an extra 50,000 Joe McElderry singles to keep them off!
