Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

Someone has started a campaign on Facebook to get "Killing in the Name" to number one for Xmas please show your support and stop X Factor getting to the top spot.
There is something pagan in me that I cannot shake off. In short, I deny nothing, but doubt everything.

It is very certain that the desire of life prolongs it.

Re: Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

I can understand why people dont want X Factor to get the top spot yet again,but you have to also remember that the winner needs support etc, they are just starting out in the music business which I can only assume is a damn tough business to break through, so I must decline on this one.

The money from the RATM download is going to Shelter, so well worth doing, in my opinion.

Re: Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

I've got nothing against the artist but I don't like the fact that manufacured pop acts who've literally come out of no where automatically get to number one on the back of a so called reality tv programme when artists that have been working for years and actually write their own material and haven't had that leg up.

Re: Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

Actually I do have to agree with you there,its unfair for people who have been around for many a year and suddenly a fresh faced unknown "popstar" gets a number one spot immediately!! yeah I would have to say im changing my mind on this one, I do hope that this year at least they dont get that number one spot as they would expect every year.

Re: Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

Well Rage managed to get the number 1 spot, which is a victory against bland, manufactured music. :D I saw Joe on the TV and he seemed quite philosophical about it. Unlike some of the commentators on AOL, who are 'outraged at this vile music'. The funniest thing is that they assume that Rage are a new band, rather than a major force in heavy music!?

Re: Rage Against the Machine for number 1!

I heard about this. It made smile when I heard Rage got to #1. Together we can do it!

And as for the X-factor generation of singers..., I dont mind if they are #1, but only IF they are actually good.

Very true cry, I remember that guy from Scotland(cant remember whereabouts!!) he was called Leon, he was bloody awful!! so where is he now??? nowhere thats where!! just because someone wins a singing contest does not mean instant stardom,destined for La La Land!! etc, very few make it in the music industry,those who do become big stars,some only get their fifteen minutes and BANG!! they're never heard of again.

All very true Ruby. Let's face it, if you can't make it with all the exposure that X-Factor gives you, then it isn't your destiny?
I really liked Lucie Jones, who has now been signed up by a modelling agency. After losing out to the Judder Twins I hope she has a huge success in this career.
