Are you sure about that?
Re: “Rage Against The Machine for Christmas No.1”
People across the internet are creating groups, sending out messages to strangers and friends alike and reminding everyone who doesn’t want the X Factor to get to Number One that they have to buy ‘Killing In The Name Of’.
A tad ironic, no?
Given that most famous lyric, “fuck you I won’t do what you tell me” from this song, the only logical conclusion for fans of the band is for NOBODY to conform to the directive set by the groups, and deliberately NOT buy the single.
Thus, pop music has eaten itself.
Also, doesn’t somebody try this every year?
But, I talk a lot of shite at least 90% of the time so I’ll probably still end up buying it. Its an interesting experiment that seems to have garnered more attention than previous “Get [insert improbable song] to Christmas Number One!” campaigns.
Also, I must admit that its nice to see everyone band together in a shared cause. The people involved really seem to care. If only people would be as passionate about voting and making a change when it comes time for an election.
