I don't know but I love Rage Against the Machine a lot more than Simon Cowell. I think X-Factor is a British American Idol, not sure though


You forgot to say something self-deprecating.

no it's not a game... X-Factor is a place where you buy music and people on facebook started a group to get the #1 spot for christmas with Killing in the Name and then Simon slammed them for it.

But more importantly who stayed up till 2:50 to listen to Rage? Loved it.

So much fail in this thread.

Firstly, X-Factor is NOT a place where you can "buy music," it's a talent competition.

Secondly, it is NOT the "British version of American Idol." American Idol is the American version of what was once called "Pop Idol." X-Factor is simply a new version of Pop Idol. So it's the British version of a British show.

Now to answer the TS, there's a group on Facebook that doesn't like how the X-Factor winner keeps getting the Christmas number one spot. In order to stop this from happening again, they're buying Killing in the Name Of to get that to No. 1 instead.

Pop Idol is clearly the British version of American Idol, you twat. X-Factor is a similar show, obviously funded/managed by Simon Cowell and his pet ego. A bunch of people on Facebook started a thing to get Killing in the Name as the No. 1 in the UK charts in the Christmas week, because the winner of X-Factor has had the No. 1 single for the last 3 years, these people thought they'd rebel against Mainstream Conformist views or whatever they fight against nowadays and get a different type of song to win. That is all.

KEdit: THANK YOU MINKARO. YOU HAVE TEMPORARILY RESTORED MY FAITH IN THIS HOLE... now to go to the Pokemon thread and have it crushed again.

This is funny because... oh wait it's not.


I don't live in England so all I know is what what posted on NME.com so I just assumed that's what X-Factor was. Oh well. Close enough.

Sorry I pissed you off, there's just so many versions of the same type of show it's hard to remeber which one is which

This thread is quickly becoming hilarious.

"I have no idea what this is about, but dammit I'm going to go and act as though I'm the master of all knowledge on the subject "

Edit: ^ I'm not pissed off at all, I'm honestly finding it all funny.

I thought you have been in the Pit to know that that's what it is.

You fucking idiot. The X Factor is a band that have tried to win a talent competition called Rage, but Simon Cowell is trying to piss them off by voting for The Machine instead. How did you not hear about this?

YOU are the fucking idiot. Clearly Simon Cowell was trying to win a competition called "Christmas Factor", and people were like "Nah, fuck that. Let's make The Machine number 1" and Simon went into rage mode.

Yeah.

Further extensive research reveals that it was actually a mechanical man named Christopher Imon who scowled, and this was a major factor in the current mass rage towards Xmas.
