I didnt think it was RATM themselves who have staged this.........

Are you only just discovering this news?
#3
I think its stupid.
because, Xfactor is never guaranteed to win Xmas No.1 -- people buy the single so it wins!
So surely if anyone's got a problem with it then don't buy the single!
I think other bands/groups etc should still release songs at xmas cuz then the public have more of a choice!

If only it was a nice Xmas song that was going against the Xfactor one! This way people would buy it cuz they like it and not just to spite Simon Cowell!! Rage against the Machine is horrible! can you imagine you Grandmas reaction when she hears it on the radio! omg!!!

Whatever happens - Simon Cowell is the winner. He has a shed load of shares in Sony (RATM label) and the X factor guy. This media hype will mean that more and more people are going to buy these singles and Mr Cowells pockets are getting fuller and fuller.

It's not the band that are 'staging' this...

Meanwhile, in other news, the Titanic has sunk.

Obviously you've never experienced the impact a 4 month televised advertising campaign has on kids. It IS guaranteed to be number one every year, that's the problem and that's the point of the campaign.

In response to some of the other comments, this was conceived by a group of like-minded individuals on the internet and has nothing to do with the band, although they have kindly offered to donate the proceeds to charity. Oh, and Sony own Cowell, not the other way around. Sony have stated Cowell gets no benefit from RATM sales, while Epic and SyCo happen to both belong to Sony they are totally separate entities.

I don't know what's worse - the people voting for the X factor song, or the ones voting for the RATM song just so the x factor doesn't get to number 1. Whichever camp they fall in they are all just being the same follow the sheep mentality.

thats up to the bands themselves
single sales are not worth the paper their written on.

the way forward is live gigs and concerts
thats where the real bands are

single charts are aimed at the teens

What next, man on the moon?? Sony will be the real winners out of this.
Much as I hate x-factor, buckley couldn't do it last year with a better song so I doubt RATM can? I'd of personally gone with the muppets and queen. Last xmas number one prior to x-factor??? Bob the builder
