Time To Rage Against Cowell’s Machine

Dec 7, 2009 by

Here’s a potential Christmas cracker for all our followers – backing a winner while sticking two fingers up at the X Factor at the same time.
Rage Against The Machine are re-releasing their 90s hit ‘Killing In The Name’ in an attempt to beat the X Factor winner’s single to the Christmas No.1.

A Facebook petition to help get it there has already gone past 260,000 members, and is attracting around 100 new members per minute, harnessing the power of Twitter to get the message out there to people to download the track.
It will struggle to topple the X Factor release – expected to be a cover of the anodyne Miley Cyrus track ‘The Climb’ – but those kind bookie chaps are offering a market betting without the X Factor single.
RATM are a best-priced 6-4 with Paddy Power, and that has to be an early Christmas present unless Cowell’s brain-washed disciples back up the X Factor winner’s song by also buying Subo’s festive offering in their droves.
You can do your bit by downloading the RATM track from December 13 – and Tweeting this message to all your followers:
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE FOR XMAS No.1 #ratm4xmas See here for details http://bit.ly/inthename PLEASE RT
The way this inspired viral campaign is gathering steam, it’s not impossible it does beat the X Factor single, so it’s also worth a few quid on the outright Xmas No.1 market, and taking the 5-1 with Paddy Power ‘Any Other’.
The ‘Killing In The Name’ track may sit uneasily alongside ‘White Christmas’ and all those other festive tunes wafting dreamily through the living room, but there’s no denying it’s a worthwhile cause and the lyrics pertinently ring true regarding X Factor’s mind-numbing monopolisation of the charts:
So from the top, let’s hear it one more time: ‘And now you do what they told ya, now you’re under control. And now you do what they told ya, now you’re under control… Yeah! Come on! F*ck you, I won’t do what you tell me. F*ck you, I won’t do what you tell me.’
