Simon Cowell on Rage Against The Machine

Simon Cowell has branded the Facebook campaign to get Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name’ to the Christmas Number One slot ahead of this year’s winner of The X Factor “stupid” and “cynical”.

Over 550,000 people have joined the Facebook group, which urges members to download ‘Killing In The Name’ this Sunday to prevent the Christmas Number One being held by the show’s winner for the fifth year in a row.
