RATM - Killing in the name are UK christmas number 1

Posted 21 December 2009 - 11:31 AM

After a succesful internet campaign, RATM have stopped Xfactor (like pop idol) from getting another christmas number 1.

In a way it's pretty cool to not have the crappy cover of Mileyt Cyrus' - The climb, but the victory is not actually that great, considering a lot of things, such as the fact that RATM are signed to the same label as these Xfactor people.

A struggling band from a struggling record label may have been a more epic win, what you reckon?

I thought RATM broke up? Can you imagine if these guys did a Christmas album? It would be the most depressing Christmas carols about 3rd world countries & wayward government.

You don't have to care, it's only a topic.

why would you post something you don't think anyone would care about? the point is, you left out any semblance of context for every member who has no idea what this is about.

I didn't say noone would care, just that "you" don't have to.

Basically noone really cares about christmas number 1, it just means the song that is top of the singles chart christmas week. It was interesting this time though as it wasn't an Xfactor winner, it has been for the last 4 years.

A small victory over mass idiocy!

I slightly care, but don't know a lot of information about the details of the band.

@sloth It's an open topic if one showed any attempt to care they would post a response or else much as your self they would post a criticism which won't likely improve the thread.
