    Default Rage against the X Factor!!

    I'm not usually one to have any truck with games or groups on Facebook (Sorry Phrost!).

    But this one was just too good to miss!

    Apparently, this group on FB, are dead set on ousting the usual X Factor related rubbish from the top of the UK chart this year and I thought this was too much fun to pass up!

    Here's an article with the details :- http://www.clashmusic.com/news/rage-...-christmas-hit

    So, I say to unto all you 'Ciders, especially the UK ones, do your bit for some serious IRL trolling and a truly legendary Christmas number one!

    Go on!!

    You know you want to!!

    It's basically Pop/American Idol and Britain/America's got Talent in a slightly different dress.

    Rock band Rage Against The Machine is ahead of X Factor winner Joe McElderry in the race for the Christmas number one, early sales figures suggest.

    A Facebook group aiming to get the band's 1992 hit Killing In The Name to the top of the festive chart has attracted more than 750,000 members.

    But McElderry's debut The Climb, out on CD on Wednesday, is expected to catch up by the weekend.

    That quote almost had me seriously LOLing. For a second, I thought that was Rock Band: Rage Against the Machine, and the band had sold the rights of their songs to a corporation.

    Anything that gets Christmas No 1 is destined to be played every day at this time forever more. The potential for epic is immeasurable.

    "Rage Against The Machine, meanwhile, are signed to Epic Records, which is part of Sony BMG, the same label as McElderry. "

    There's every chance that this is a guerilla marketing campaign by Sony.

    If you actually want to piss record company executives off I heartily suggest you just pirate as much music as possible and simply don't listen to chart shows.
