Rage Against The Machine IS the UK Xmas No 1!
Flipping Norah! Have Britain’s rebel rock fans gone ape or what! According to the BBC online news site, Rage Against The Machine have sold half a million copies of Killing In The Name, 50,000 more than Joe McElderry’s The Climb, and have secured the coveted Xmas number one slot.
Some people – one of whom’s surname begins C and ends in Owell – are saying that this is like being bullied in the school playground. What a whiner! He’s already foisted 4 Xmas number ones on the nation courtesy of the X-Factor bland burger-tune factory. But to me, RATM’s success isn’t merely a counter to them but also in answer to such glittering Crimbo number one’s as There’s No One Quite Like Grandma, Mistletoe & Wine, Mr Blobby, Can We Fix It?, oh yeah, and Two Little Boys.
All proceeds from Killing In The Name Of are going to the SHELTER charity, and RATM have promised to come over to the UK to hold a big free concert in celebrations. Now, where can we find a venue to accommodate half a million?
