Rage Against the Machine Reaches No.1 Single the Week Before Christmas
Who said Facebook groups were worthless? Within the last five years, the number one spot for a single was "X-Factor" by Simon Cowell. This year breaks this paradigm with a little surprise: Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name," thanks to a dedicated Facebook group.
The week before Christmas, with the advent of a dedicated Facebook group , Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name" was risen to the number one downloaded song in Britain. What started as something on a whim, Tracy Morter (one of the founders of the Facebook group) described this news as a "shock, really." "You don't actually think it's going to happen, and we just want to make sure Joe knows it wasn't personal against him and hope he has a wonderful Christmas," she says. In addition to achieving the smash hit, the group also raised over 100,000 dollars to support a homeless charity organization.
