just think of all those kids out there, now rocking to RATM, rather than Coldplay or Busted, weve introduced a new generation to music , where the words have meaning and cant be ignored.

the posters coming on and making negative remarks about those who bought the single are annoying. I was well aware of Simon Cowells connections to Sony and RATM. That wasn't the point.

If we hadn't bought the track we wouldn't have just raised 66,000 pounds for the homeless at Christmas. That's surely a good enough reason in itself.

very well said woodwardjnr 66,000 for the homeless would the x factor winner do that or throw a free gig and educate them on all the injustice in the world, i don't think so, but im of the belife that if you don't know what the meaning and intent is in there songs you never will or too young to grasp it,
like i was when i first started listening to them about 16 years ago,
to me it was all about the bad boy image back thenno idea of the meening of it all,
if kids/teens take to this after all this hype we should teach them what the meaning's behind there songs are,
we never had older wiser people to point it out while we were growing up it wasent there sort of music, we are wiser now and if the youth take to it because of all the swearing and rebeliousnes we should point out the reasons for all that.. there more likely to understand the meaning's behind there songs earlyer on than to work it out for themselves 10 years later.

rage against the machine is an exellent band to teach about greed, poverty, injustice, and morality (morality despite the swearing that just make people sit up and listen).

i think the us should have the same or similar campaing.

I reckon that us ATS members who are following this new and brilliant revolt should get together and go to the free concert.

I'm not one for going to concerts.. only ever seen pink floyd at Wembley..

I have a funny feeling that this concert is going to be major.

Imagine the banners being made and displayed.. the voice of several thousand people all raging against the machine..

I hope someone does a video of it..

I'm sure that the location and date(s) will be released once they get themselves organised. Might be a couple of months at least before we hear about where and when .

I love the fact that we've PROVEN to the world that we won't allow corporate manufactory to rule us.

I love the fact the fans have donated a HUGE amount to Shelter the homeless charity (and potentially saved some lives the Xmas).

I love the fact that Rage are donating their royalties to this charity too...

It also makes me laugh whenever i hear the radio 'and now for our Xmas number one... Rage against the machine'

I love Rage and it shows that real music can trump manufactured music any day of the week. Real music rings with people on a whole other level. Music with a real message that reaches peole the way Rage does is more powerful than any weapon...
Those who work forces....
Are the same who burn crosses....
You better what they told ya....

i for one was proud to be a part of this campaign and watch it grow from a small group into an into a mainstream media force, raise almost £100,000 for a homless charity SHELTER and got one of my favourite bands to play live for us in just a few weeks. I had a merry xmas and a brilliant new year.

Here's the video of them playing on the radio...... language warning for the kiddies

Yup...missed it too...


Too busy doing other stuff... as normal..

Typical..

Ah, well never mind.. I was kinda hoping we'd have heard a bit more about it on other sources, but tptb obviously wanted to put a lid on this one.

Thanks for the update.
