This next set goes out for Candy



Rage Against The Machine are to make a bid to beat this year's winner of 'The X Factor' to the UK's Christmas Number One single position.

A Facebook group asking people to buy the band's 'Killing In The Name' has at the time of writing attracted over 45,000 members.

The group states that fans should buy the song from December 13 – the same day that this year's X Factor winner's song becomes available.

Twitter users are also showing their support for the petition by retweeting the following message: "Rage Against The Machine For Xmas No.1 #ratm4xmas See here for details http://bit.ly/inthename please RT".


Although it hasn't been confirmed yet, the winner of 'The X Factor' 2009 is reportedly set to release a cover of Miley Cyrus' 'The Climb' as their Christmas single.

A similar petition for Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah' was launched last year in reaction to 'The X Factor' winner Alexandra Burke releasing her version of the song for Christmas.

Although Burke still topped the UK singles charts with the song, Buckley's rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic reached the Number Two position.

This year's Christmas Number One single will be announced on December 20. From NME Magazine

This is beginning to worry me.

My last post contained Hitler - obscurely perhaps but he was there.

An earlier post including muppets was spookily done on both mine and yours.

Now I know there is a lot of room in my head but I would appreciate it if you would stop being spooky!!!!

Incidentally the X-Factor is hilarious in so many ways.

I would have loved it if The Rice Krispie Twins had won it.

Can't sing, can't dance, weird heads.

Actually I think the bird that's left is quite sexy...

Mind you I'm an old drunk so that doesn't necessarily mean too much eh?...;-)

It's a very nice overview on the X-Factor Rage thing set to "the night before x-mas".
