Rage Against The Machine raged against Simon Cowell and won. They wanted fans to download their 1992 song "Killing In The Name" to block X Factor for having the number one song for the 5th straight year in a row by the winner of the show.
The song reached number 1 on downloads only, which is a first in the UK. Rage promises a free concert as a victory party. They also raised money for charity in their efforts.
Did any of our UK readers take part in this? Wonder how tight Simon's sweater is today.-Dr.FB
