Rage Against the Machine – Killing In The Name Of

Watch the classic video

With all this ‘Rage Against The Machine for Christmas Number 1’ business currently engulfing the internet, we thought it’d be nice to actually go back and enjoy the classic track, ‘Killing In The Name Of’.

The song is the focus of a campaign to beat the X Factor talent show winner to the UK Christmas number 1 single, an almost inevitable outcome based on previous year’s releases. The song, from Rage Against The Machine’s debut album, was seemingly chosen as it builds to a furious chant of “F*ck you, I won’t do what you tell me”.

The campaign to bag ‘Killing In The Name Of’ the UK Christmas number 1 single slot is gaining momentum with nearly 600,000 fans joining the Facebook page with the intention of all buying the song on December 13th to outsell the X Factor winner.
