    I've never heard of that rage against the machine group, I think I read they were big in the 1980's or something, heard their song on the bbc the other day, right load of crap, it's just a noise and shouting.

    Not a particular fan of them, however they have a decent history of activism Rage Against the Machine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As for Jer Pet or noise... I prefer the shouting to autotune :)

    It appears their may have been another con, both artists were on the Sony Label.

    It's about that the conspiracy theorists are hitting the web to argue that it was all conspired by Sony, to start a little competition.

    Best bet, keep your cash in your pocket.

    Its too late anyway, as it stopped counting last night ;)

    The point was anti-xfactor rather than anti-corp or the like. Its very hard to distribute half a million copies of a record on or offline without touching corperate toes somewhere.

    Conspiracy theorists are just that :)

    Oh, and it made £60-70k in donations to shelter.

    Yep I'm totally with you guys on it, hate the x-factor crop myself. Suppose good to see them get beat whatever the reason.

    Should imagine they'll be back next year with all those that failed this years auditions.

    I bought 'Killing In The Name' the first time around. Still an anthem for me today. Takes me back to my long haired, DM wearing uni days.

    I didn't guess what would be xmas no1 but i figured it wouldn't be x- factor because that Miley Cirus song is a load of crap ;)

    Cha-CHING!

    I mentioned a while ago I bet both one xfac number 1 and not being number 1, after the various bets I laid on this, I'm not too much profit but including my xmas snow bets I'm break even over all now :)

    All I need now is Snow Fall in Manchester on X-Mas Eve/Day and/or NYE/NYD and I'm going to to be rolling all the way to the bank (well not quite). Normally I Lay my bets shortly after xmas but given the current snow I recon bookies will be giving lower odds for next year so I'll wait for a hotter summer for them.

    I may also change my bet to a Reality TV Show Act for Number 1 (if they will take that), as there are a few contenders now Cowel has been handed his balls on a plate.

    He's laughing all the way to the bank!! His X-Factor song sold around 450k copies due to all the hype. Both songs were on the same label, so you're looking at almost 1m sales for Sony, plus the additional revenues from an increased interest in Rage's back catalogue.

    Whilst it may not have been a conspiracy, Sony and Cowell have definitely benefitted from it.

    He may have made money and sony may have too but a heavy metal song on top of the tops and played on ALL radio stations at all times of the day and night.

    In all wars and battles there majors wins, minor wins and all in between. One mans win is another mans loss :)
