Following a Facebook internet campaign, the revolutionary rap metal band ‘Rage Against The Machine’ have beaten X Factor winner Joe McElderry to the Christmas top spot. The song is called, ‘Killing in the Name’, which is ironic as that’s what the humanity doing to the natural world.
The Facebook campaign was acknowledged by some 950,000 people, including the former Beatles star, Sir Paul McCartney. In a TV interview Sir Paul said, “I like the idea of this Rage Against the Machine thing happening. I think that’s kind of interesting… it would prove a point.”
The band’s guitarist, Tom Morello, has since claimed their success was an act of God, saying “when Mother Nature and Sir Paul McCartney agree on something its going to be unstoppable.”
