Most of you will have seen or at least heard of the campaign to make 'Killing in the name of' by Rage Against the Machine Christmas no.1 in protest to the X-factor. Now in theory you might think this sounds like a good idea but it's ridiculously badly (or extremely well) thought out. Depending if some moron really did come up with the idea or if it was Sony themselves. Simon Cowell works for Sony. RATM are signed to Sony. People are not going to buy RATM instead of the x-factor song so therefore it will not detract at all from their sales. Buying 'Killing in the name of' gives Sony/Simon EXTRA revenue it does not detract from it. Has this not been thought out in anyway or am I completely missing something?
