# 1 : Monday 14-12-2009 @ 13:55
 
 
There's a facebook campaign to get Killing in The Name by RATM to number one as a protest to the usual X-Factor shit.

It's currently at number 3 so fingers crossed!

Buy yours now!

Oh yes there is!

X-Factor's Joe McElderry's bid for Christmas number one in doubt as Facebook battle Rages
This year's race for the Christmas number one has turned into a bitter ding-dong battle between Facebook power and Simon Cowell's X-Factor power as the race goes 'right to the wire'.

Joe Mcelderry won the X-Factor but will he bag the Xmas number one? Joe Mcelderry won the X-Factor but will he bag the Xmas number one?

Music industry insiders say Cowell and X-Factor champ Joe McElderry are poised to be denied top slot in one of the biggest upsets in chart history by the time Santa arrives.

According to latest sales figures, Geordie Joe is in a neck and neck battle as he tries to propel his winning cover of Miley Cyrus's The Climb over the re-released version of nineties anthem ‘Killing in the Name’ by Rage Against The Machine.

Figures from Amazon's MP3 sales show McElderry is only narrowly in front of the rock group after a fierce campaign was set up online in a bid to deny the X-Factor winner from stealing the prestigious position for another year.

‘There is not much in it at the moment,’ said the head of music buying Julian Monaghan from Amazon.co.uk Ltd’s

‘We obviously saw a massive rush of sales on Joe McElderry’s track as soon as the MP3 became available for download shortly after the conclusion of the X Factor on Sunday night but we saw almost as strong a response for the Rage against the Machine track over that same period.’

‘This could go right to the wire and I am sure that fans of the X Factor and Joe McElderry will be keen to ensure that their favourite is this year’s Christmas number one.'

But ‘Killing in the Name’ is still in with a shout of the biggest upset in chart history, says Monaghan.

'At this point though, there is still a good chance that we may see one of the biggest shocks in chart history come Sunday.'

'Either way, if the sales continue in the manner that they have started, one of these tracks will certainly go on to become Amazon.co.uk‘s biggest-selling MP3 download of all time.’

Last week, Cowell addressed jitters about the potential of losing but claimed he was the target of a 'cynical campaign' by Facebook addicts.

Today, thousands of fans hit back at Cowell as they downloaded the Rage Against The Machine track.

User Lewis Wetherell wrote: 'Rage Against Simon Cowell. Simon Cowell is bad news.'

Sensing victory, another Will O Callaghan wrote: 'maaaannn if this happens it will be f***in epic.'

Meanwhile, it has emerged 18-year-old McElderry won 61% of Sunday's final vote over Cowell's hopeful Olly Murs.

Bought a copy on itunes yesterday, don't think there will be enough people for the Irish chart but it will be interesting to see what happens in the uk.

I don't know, hope so. it'd be a shame if they didn't! I bet that overall amazon has sold more RATM than x factor.

There Is no chance!

They did this last year with Alex and Jeff. In the end Jeff sold 81000 and Alex sold nearly 600000 and Jeff was number 2

The first day singles sales will be out tomorrow and I'd say Joe will be a good bit ahead

RATM is only available for download, when Joe hits the shops Wednesday every copy will sell

hahaha, yeah right, rage against the machine are a shitty homogenized product, just like the x-factor. the only difference between is the that the twelve year old girls who watch the x-factor are stupid enough to spend money on it, while the teen to early college market that listen to RATM just download it.

What a load of bollocks! How are RATM "homogenized"? Name one band that sounds like them?

And the fact they're at the top of the charts shows loads of people are willing to spend money on the single!
