Christmas Greetings, Take The Power Back

So we, the people, have done it. Rage Against The Machine are UK Christmas number 1 with Killing in the Name!
To be honest, my involvement in it had very little do do with sticking a finger to Simon Cowell, I just kind of thought it would be cool. Almost 20 years of hard work (yeah, the album 'Rage Against the Machine' was 1992) has paid off.
But when I heard that the campaign was raising money for Shelter, I definitely wanted to be a part of it. Rage have said that a large amount of the proceeds they receive will go to Shelter, which is great, but the campaign has raised an incredible £70,000.
Talk about people power, right?
Millions of people tuned in to vote Joe McElderry the winner of X Factor, and thousands made Rage number one. I'm so proud of our little island for this. Shows that we're not all pricks.
So if anyone has any spare pennies, head over to and drop them a couple of quid if you can.

Merry Christmas, guys.
