Xfactor is shit and it is stupid because these people just become famous because of a talent show. They then just do a song cover and get to christmas no. 1. Real music is made by rock bands or instrument players who started at level 0 and worked their way to the top like Acdc, Led zepplin and rage against the machine. Simon cowell just uses them for money.

lets see how man we can get....

Had enough of Simon Cowell's (American Idol and X-factor)latest karaoke act being at the No.1 spot on the music charts

I think we all are...People from England have said enough is enough,they
have had nearly 500,0000 people join the revolution in protest, to the
monopoly that these shows have on the music charts.

We are
concerned that their televised take on making cash from what they deem
to be music is slowly killing the music scene in the U.K and the

So who"s else is in for a Mass buy of the single
"KILLING IN THE NAME" from December 23rd as a protest to the monopoly
that these 2 shows have?

England will have "killing in the name" in The No.1 spot on the charts over the Xmas and New Year period.

C"mon they have started it..lets finish it

RATM dont deserve any more respect / credibility than the latest X Factor kid.
Im guessing the internet campaign is at least partly out of some music-purist protest against production-line pop stars?
Havent RATM trotted out the same pap they released 17 years ago, their only hit people have heard of?
Would RATM have had a number 1 without this campaign? No. Why did RATM rerelease the song? Maybe just to cash in again?
Were not talking about a clash between X Factor and say Muse or Kings of Leon. Just 1 Mickey Mouse against another.
