>Rage Against The Mediocre


Thank goodness for small mercies.

There’s a tradition in the UK that the #1 Christmas song (in recent years, at least) has to be vacuous, innocuous, innoffensive and musically worthless.

Most recently, it’s been provided by the winner of “The X Factor” – something like “American Idol”

That would appear to fit the bill

This year’s different.

Someone set up a Facebook group, grew it to 1,000,000 members and exhorted them to download Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing in the name” in large numbers.

500,000 downloads later, they’d beaten “The X Factor”‘s conveyor belt  manufactured star, Joe McElderry, by 50,000.

Meeting with 80% approval ratings in New Zealand.

100% around here.
