Just saw that on the news.

So the campaign to get Rage Against The Machine to number one is working eh?

I'm not a fan of their music but is it any good, worth the No. 1 spot.

I'm still holding out for the day that a Trance tune gets the No. 1 spot. Although it will never happen.

Its sabotage for the sake of it.

What about Cowell sabotaging the Xmas No1 slot year after year, i remember when Xmas number ones were exciting, there was always some naff song about and you never knew who was gonna be No1, now its so predictable it takes the fun out of it

Minus 1,000,000.

I'm waiting for the day some proper metal hits number 1 (and I will be forever waiting methinks). RATM isn't amazing, but they're not bad either. Clearly trance/dance/girl music lovers won't enjoy RATM, but then again, X factor sucks

Doesn't have to be hardcore metal, just epic, some power metal would go down nicely!

I echo that.

I'm thinking maybe Van Buurens new tune Broken Tonight.

Or a trance tune by Dash Berlin called Waiting (great music vid too)

seems a lot of people on here do. I find it very sad tbh. Nearly as sad as people who worry about their gamerscore / trophies :-D

OP this site is epic![url]www.di.fm[/url]



I go on that site when stoned or high thats about it lol.

xfacter winners are basically garenteed a no1 its been the same for the past 5 years, simon cowel owns the shows, the record label and their contracts. The reason the rage song was picked is because its a controversial song, its quite well known but not overly popular and it has a lot of political meaning behind the song. its about going against the grain and not just following suite. Its also a brilliant song. Money is going to charity from this. Just cause the bloke was on xfacter it doesnt mean he should get the xmas number 1 he should have to earn it like the past non xfacter artists who have managed to claim the spot, if people really think hes that good they will buy is song and he will get to the top spot anyway.

Hopefully this will bring back a little excitement, that the race to xmas no.1 used to have. I see no harm in this campaign.
