Well if you live in the uk this has been all over the press about a facebook group started to get people to buy "killing in the name of" to stop uk "talent show" X factor having yet another Christmas number 1 as every x factor winner since 2004 has had the number one slot,

The group snowballed and as a result nearly twenty years after its release RATM have the uk christmas number one

just wondering what your views are guys and gals?


Thanks

Alex

I have heard something about this but I have nothing to add.
The news speaks for itself. Awesome news. That's all.

I can't help feel sorry for the talen show winner, don' t know anything of it but it could have been his or her one and only shot at something.

But either way that's a good ratm song smile.gif

I bought 8 copies! I'm quite sick of the karaoke acts getting number 1 at xmas here, the kid that won isn't a bad singer but winning a "talent" show then covering a hannah montanna song definitely doesn't warrant a number 1. Best of luck to him though I wouldnt mind seeing some original tunes then judging wink.gif

We raised alot for charity too so a good christmas so far smile.gif

That whole idea was just awesome!

Didn't the band agree to play a free concert if the fans can pull it off?
