An online campaign is underway to get Eagles of Death Metal, who were playing at the Bataclan theatre when the Paris terror attacks were carried out, to the top of the UK singles chart to show unity, respect and defiance.

duranduran.com/wor…er/

Duran Duran issued a statement today regarding the fan campaign to propel the Eagles of Death Metal’s cover of their song “Save A Prayer” to #1 on the British charts.

“We are honored that the Eagles of Death Metal covered “Save A Prayer,” and included it on their most recent album. In fact, it was a thrill playing the song together recently on TFI Friday in London. We bumped into the band on Friday afternoon of last week, when we were all on our way to Paris on the Eurostar. We were opening Al Gore’s Climate Change concert broadcast there, and they were playing at the Bataclan. What happened that night defies any kind of comprehension. The tragedy that unfolded at their show, and around the city, brought immeasurable sadness to so many and shocked the world. We wholeheartedly support the campaign that the fans have mounted to show solidarity to the band that they love. We will be donating all of our royalties from the sale of this version of the single. There are a number of causes under consideration, all of which are peaceful, effective and unifying.”

– Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor & Roger Taylor, London.

Heat. Epic song. Good cause.

I have nothing against the cause, but is this really a deal?

Seriously?
It's a shame they're not really a Death Metal band. Still. Good cause.

what about the restaurant that was attacked, will they get something??? :\
I'd rather give them something than the band! they have list business

Seriously?




Yes, seriously. What has music chart got to do with some brainwashed angry muslims? Why won't you start all ordering food from the restaurant where people died?

Sheep will follow anyway.

Always one
Can we ask questions?
Who is endorsing this? Duran Duran? What have they to do with it?
What about the hosting company etc and royalties and sync? Does every penny ever made now go to charity?
Seems a simple thing but really isnt
Purchased.
Only found out the other day that they're not really a death metal band . Another example of a band losing potential fans by picking a really strange and misleading band name
Standard price. Belongs in Misc.

Or you could read about the campaign and see that the right holders to the song, Duran Duran, are donating royalty proceeds to charity..

Queens of the Stone Age are all men.

Great idea - EODM are awesome (but not as awesome as QOTSA).

Whats the difference? they both provided a service, one food the other music.

BTW It was more than one restaurant that was attacked.

Yes i seen that but what does that mean?
Is he in the band or did he write the song?

Also with digital sales there are all sorts of complicated payment structures in place , so its misleading at best to say "every penny"

I thought the same about "The Weather Girls" turns out they don't tell me when it'll be sunny.

Heat added.

if the money raised helps those affected is that not a good thing?

Yes. He wrote the song. First paragraph of the article in the link:

Which charity? Syrian refugees or families in Syria affected by American, UK, French etc bombs or something?

Just bought after hearing it, anything I can do to stick my middle finger at ISIS or Daish or whatever they call themselves. They give savages a bad name.
Be a nice gesture for fans of the band for them to get some deserved airplay as well after what they have suffered.

Or a pointer to your inability to open yourself up to new experiences...

The gigs in the UK sold out before their new album was announced, not bad for a small band from the USA that hardly anybody had heard of who hadn't toured for about 5 years over here eh?....
Thanks...

I know I was gutted when neither Morrissey or Marr had a clue about metalwork. Had to get someone else to do my forging.
should just buy it as its an awesome song, those josh hommes backing vocals are brilliant

if someone would sell an mp3 on itunes of someone saying 'shut up!' to post under that comment, i would vote that that goes in at number 2...

while we're at it... how about a shia muslim christmas tune i'm guessing that's something of an impossible conundrum) that separates them from the ISIS/sunni position of whatever-twisted-interpretation-of-islam-they pervert?

In the case of comedy (or song) helping those in Africa, perhaps if 'Saints' Bono and Geldof et al dipped their hands into their multiple millions before asking mere mortals to give hard earned dosh, I'd be more sympathetic to their cause - it's easy asking the average working class person to donate money when you live in a mansion and don't know exactly how much money you've got (and 'don't know' exactly how much illegal stuff your children's mother is using either let's not forget).

Isn't it your bedtime grandad?

I am sure that the majority realise the tragedy in Paris was not just against the French but against us all...... For those who don't yet grasp that and are holding out for a bomb to go off in their street to wake them up,I truly feel sorry.

A good worthy cause !!!
