It was nice to see that the Facebook campaign to get Rage Against the Machine to the Christmas No.1 slot against the pap X-Factor song was a success. OK, I admit that I don’t know who won, nor the name of the song, but it just has to be shite!
However, whilst I admire the anti-establishment stance behind the campaign I didn’t subscribe to it myself, as surely you’re doing exactly the same as Simon Cowell’s publicity machine, i.e. telling people what to listen to? By supporting the campaign and downloading the RATM track, you have all become conforming non-conformists. And I ain’t having any of it.
As in the the words of the song – “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me – MOTHERFUCKER!!”
