Flo schreibt mir: „Gelangweilt von dem alljährigen Bullshit-Weihnachtssong aus der Castingshow 'X-Factor' haben ein paar Briten via Facebook zum Boykott aufgerufen. Wegen der schönen Textzeile 'Fuck you i won´t do what you tell me' soll statt dessen 'Killing in the name of' von Rage against the Machine gekauft werden und da Teile des verkaufs der X-Factor-Single gespendet werden, wurde zusätzlich auch noch eine Spendenaktion ins Leben gerufen! Und... es scheint zu funktionieren!“

The race for the Christmas number one officially kicked off Sunday night (Dec. 13) when 'X Factor' contestant Joe McElderry beat Olly Murs to win this year's edition of the talent contest. Yet despite Simon Cowell's plans to install the 18-year-old at the peak of this year's Yuletide charts with his cover of Miley Cyrus' 'The Climb,' Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing in the Name Of' is currently occupying the top slot in both the HMV and iTunes download charts.

As previously reported, a Facebook group was created with the express intention of stopping this year's 'X Factor' winner shooting to the top of the festive charts by urging fans to buy Rage Against the Machine's polemical 1992 hit instead. The group has so far attracted over 714,000 members.
