They may not have a Christmas album coming out, but that won't stop Rage Against The Machine from dominating the UK music charts this holiday season!
In order to stop Simon Cowell's X Factor artists from hitting #1 with their Christmas tracks, the rockers are urging fans to download their 1992 hit, Killing In the Name.
"Fed up of Simon Cowell's latest karaoke act being Christmas No 1? Me too… So who's up for a mass-purchase of the track Killing In The Name as a protest to the X Factor monotony?" touted the Facebook group spearheading Rage's campaign.
And Simon isn't happy! He calls the bid to outsell him "stupid" and "cynical," yet fans claim the group has been pulled off Facebook in an attempt to defeat their mission.
"I think it was sabotage!" said an fan. "Cowell is threatened by the group as he has made loads of remarks about it already."
Rage Against the Machine has been barely inching by X Factor winner Joe McElderry's Miley Cyrus cover, but he is expected to get a surge of downloads as the holidays draw near.
The band's guitarist, Tom Morello, is beginning to get desperate!
"Rage's Killing in the Name & the X-Factor's goofy Christmas single are neck and neck for num one spot on UK chart. England! Now is your time."
Who do U think will come out on top?!
