Default RATM UK Xmas No1

I meant to post about this campaign a week ago but I didn't get the time. Now that RATM have won however, I am ecstatic

This was a campaign basically designed to stop the Xfactor (Winner of Christmas number one four years in a row) getting to number one in the UK singles charts, again. RATM winning has set two records;

1. It is the first single to reach the top of the charts on download sales alone.

2. It has achieved the biggest download sales total in a first week ever in the UK charts.

Oh and before anyone mentions it, I realise where the money goes and the irony of an anti-capitalist, anti-establishment band being used to get a number one spot.

Anyway, take it away RATM

Result.

Things like this restore my faith in humanity.

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.

Many thanks to [R-DEV]Adriaan for the sig!

The X Factor (a derivant of Pop Idol, which your American Idol is based on itself) has produced the xmas #1 for the last 4 years. Since virtually everything from the X Factor goes to Simon Cowell.

This was a campaign to get someone other than Cowell the top spot for once, and it won.

Funniest part of the whole thing was the X factor winner whinging about not being intitled to the Christmas single as the other three were

Cause we throw bombs on it, throw bombs on it. Just smash something, yeah mosh for me.
