So, the race for Xmas #1 is on and our (as I first thought of) unlikely contender is actually picking up pace and keeping up with the predictable option (X-Factor winner #234).
From the newspaper clipping below (taken from today's Metro, p11), Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name" has been such a popular choice among the non X Factor fans that it was actually top of the iTunes download chart yesterday and many other online retailers are reporting that it features highly on their download charts too.
This is all good news.
What with Amazon confirming that their 29p download of Killing In The Name DOES count towards the charts, the 740,000+ fans of the Facebook groups in support of the song and the number of celebrities (such as Bill Bailey and Lenny Henry) supporting it too... This could be the greatest Xmas in music in quite a while!
I've bought my first copy (of possibly many)... Have you?
