RATM - Killing in the name of

I was so pleased that this hit the number 1 slot. Nothing against the X-Factor except that I am fed up with the manufactured pop star thing. It isn't a new issue... Bay City Rollers anyone? etc. but increasingly there isn't anything edgy anywhere.

Funny the edgy track chosen is 17 years old!!! Still it is the message it sends which is good, there are a huge number of people out there who will buy music when moved to do so. Hmm maybe some new bands should take heart from this and get out there and promote themselves and we'll get something new interesting and different up in the charts in 2010...

You can hope can't you?


  1. *grin*

    Have a good Christmas, and a happy and healthy 2010.

  2. RATM rock through all time and the fans are still gonna buy their music :)

    yeah, it's all rocking!


  3. brilliant wasn't it??!!! and just shows what you can do if you get together. Am SOOO tired of people saying "i can;t be bothered to vote in an election... there's no point" Here is the reason why. Together we can achieve anything. Best Xmas no.1 ever!!

    Merry Christmas!!


  4. I was also delighted that RATM got the Number 1 spot, it put a spoke in the wheel of the whole X Factor Christmas guarantee which has been the case over the past 3 years or so.
    Not only that it was a true grassroots campaign which happened to raise quite a bit of cash for SHELTER at the same time.
    First Class musical intervention i'd say.

  5. and I played it!!!

    I also actually downloaded it and PAID!!! Now there's a novelty...;-)

    Still...the download just had to count!!!!
