And now you do what they told ya

Legions of unwashed Rage Against The Machine fans have outspent legions of brainwashed X-Factor fans to send RATM’s 1992 crap anthem - sorry, rap anthem - Killing In The Name to the top of the British Christmas singles chart. NME lands an interview with the instigator of the campaign, and their article has the greatest pull-quote ever.

Totally irrelevant but interesting: the Grauniad prints the song’s closing chorus in full, while the Times disguises it with a few discreet asterisks.
