Rage Against The Machine praise Killing In The Name campaign
Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine applauds "independent" UK rock fans.
Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has said the campaign to get his band to the top of the UK charts is a "dose of anarchy" for the festive period.

An online campaign is attempting to make the rock band's 1992 hit Killing In The Name the Christmas number one and prevent X Factor winner Joe McElderry from taking the top slot.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Morello said: "I love the independent spirit of the British rock fans. Your country has a great rich history of cutting-edge, exciting rebel music."

He claimed that the attempt shows British music lovers are tired of having "some overblown, sugary ballad" declared the Christmas number one every year.

The guitarist also told the broadcaster that he intends to donate part of his proceeds from the single's sales to children's charity Youth Music.

Earlier this year, Rage Against the Machine joined a coalition of international musicians, which included Nine Inch Nails and R.E.M, to campaign against the Guantanamo Bay military prison.
