Tom Morello is a very talented guitarist but 'Shouting In The Name Of ' is shit. Angry shouty sweary bollocks, nearly as bad as Limp Bizkit; fcuk you I won't clean up my bedroom. :roll:

The RATM song is pretty naff, but at least another cowell clone never got a number 1 xmas hit. I counted 10 simon cowell tuneless wonders in the top 40 if cheryl cole is included, I'm glad i'm 40 ish and dont listen to anything younger than twenty years old!!

I'm still threaders this didn't make it to number 1, much better than both those shite songs:

Edited to add: Either way Simon Cowell wins anyway as RATM are also under his Sony deal. He must be laughing at all the mongs who bought the record to have a pop at him as he watches the cash roll in from not one, but two of his label's songs sell over 500,000 copies this Christmas. Kerching!

Pretty sure I read somewhere that only acts that Cowell has signed/manages earn money for him and he has nothing to do with Rage Against the Machine. May be wrong though.

Indeed he earns considerable royalties from the deals he signs, but as one of the major shareholders of Sony BMG, he is basically living the dream either way.

Pedant head on.

'Rage' have not made it to number one, 'Rage Against the Machine' have. There is a band that predates Rage Against the Machine called 'Rage' who are a current German metal outfit. Probably why Rage Against The Machine are abbreviated to RATM, not Rage.

Rage is pronounced differently in German but means the same things (like shouty angry )

Pedant head off
