Some of you maybe know the rap and rock band RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, however, they are currently rocking UK charts. This is due to an initiative that was initially started on Facebook. It all started in the year 2005, when the first winner of the UK’s version of “American Idol” or “Germany seeks the next superstar” called X-Factor won the contest and was number one during Christmas Eve. Ever since it has been that way but now, those boring pop ballads really started to suck and it is time for a proper dose of anarchy.
At the moment RATM has sold a few more singles that Joe McElderry who is the winner of this year’s X-Factor. Now RATM is enjoying a revival of their rebellious music. Their single which was released 1992 “Killing in the name of” is on the way to the top of the UK charts.
Even the BBC wanted to interview RATM and have them live on air. It turned out to be a fiasco for BBC’s censorship as they always try to avoid swear words and any other kind of offending language. Like FUCK for example. But everybody knows that RATM is not a band that will be censored easily. Despite the BBC demanding the band not to use any offending language, they did anyway. But just check out the video below!
Here is a short extract from an interview with Beatles star Paul MacCartney about what is going on in the UK music business.
“Everyone expects Joe to do it. If he goes to be Number One then good luck to him. He’s just some kid with a career ahead,” McCartney said. “I’ve got nothing against that, but it would be kind of funny if Rage Against The Machine got it because it would prove a point.”
