Last night Killing In The Name by Rage Against In The Machine was confirmed as the 2009 Christmas number one, after a widely reported online campaign.
McFly's Dougie Poynter was delighted to hear the news, tweeting "So happy Rage are number one."
He went on to tell how he purchased the song SEVEN times from iTunes. Unfortunately, as stated on the 'RATM For Christmas Number One' group, you should only buy ONE copy of the song - any more will cancel out your purchase and it will not contribute towards the chart.
"THE OFFICIAL CHART COMPANY HAVE CONTACTED ME AND WOULD LIKE ME TO REMIND YOU ALL THAT 'BULK' PURCHASING WILL DISQUALIFY THAT ENTIRE PURCHASE YOU'VE MADE FROM THE CHART COUNT. SO PLEASE BE WARNED, WE DON'T WANT YOU TO WASTE YOUR CASH!"
Ahh well Dougie, your heart was in the right place.
Someone who did raise an interesting poynt was Matt Willis. He tweeted "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me! Apart from download a song with the sole purpose to beat the xfactor."
