Comment: The Christmas # 1 ain’t what it used to be back in 2010 when Rage Against The Machine, raged and machined itself to the top of the charts just like in “Love Actually”. According to the Guardian: Killing In The Name, an expletive-heavy rock song first released in 1992 by the Californian rock band Rage Against the Machine, won the battle for Christmas top spot on the basis of downloads only. It sold about 500,000 copies last week, about 50,000 more than The Climb, McElderry’s earnest ballad.Depending on your view, the Rage victory was either a delicious dismantling of the X Factor Christmas No 1 juggernaut or a cynical assault on the festive charts. There was, though, some indignation when it emerged both records had links to Simon Cowell, the entertainment industry’s favorites pantomime baddy. With the Rage track having been released by Sony, and McElderry’s by Cowell’s Syco, a Sony subsidiary, some claimed the high-waisted X Factor judge would emerge triumphant whichever act won the chart battle” By one of those odd coincidences, Rak-Su were the outsider, and Ed and Bey had home field advantage.
