Fans tap into social media to rage against X-Factor
The British have this fixation with the n° 1 Christmas single that is quaint. Very often, a charity record gets the prized position (either that or Sir Cliff Richard). But for some time, X-Factor artists have been dominating the spot. So two fans of Rage Against the Machine are launching a viral campaign to reclaim the n° 1 spot from X Factor. They are asking people to buy a copy of “Killing in the Name” from December 13. It’s cute, but it is of course a blatant case of chart rigging at a large scale.
Do they have a chance? I don’t know, but I can safely say that this one will swamp Twitter and Facebook over the coming week! If interested, wait until December 13 to buy the single. Check the Facebook page. If you’re reading this after December 13, check Killing In The Name
