Been out of the loop for a while but was shocked today to hear Rage's Killing in the Name (an undeniably thunderous track whatever your taste in music) is #1 in the UK due to a Facebook campaign to beat out X-factor's latest dross. Sure Sony (and by extension Cowell) still win in the end, but I thought it was very cool to see this old nasty bit of work from '92 take the crown.
I remember "we" tried this with Life is a Pigsty and it failed miserably, but as far as I remember it was just contained to Moz-solo. Could we at least get Moz in the top 10 with a more concerted effort involving Facebook, Twitter et al? The devotion of Morrissey's fanbase is one of rock music's most fervent but will they spend yet more $ on a track they already have, even if it is for Viva Moz glory?
