Simon Cowell in pre-emptive backlash against X-Factor backlash

'I can't hear you not listening to me'

Pop supremo Simon Cowell has attempted to head off any criticism of his chart dominance this year by launching a Facebook group slamming Rage Against the Machine. The group, entitled ‘Rage against Rage Against the Machine’, has already garnered support from over 35,000 members.

This has prompted the man behind last year’s Christmas No.1 campaign to launch a new Facebook group, ‘Rage against Rage against Rage Against the Machine’, which he describes as a backlash against the X-Factor backlash backlash.

Supporters of both camps are confident of achieving success in this year’s race for the Christmas No.1 slot, despite the fact that most bookies have named their favourite as the hotly-anticipated debut single from Facebook group ‘Can This Banana Peel Get More Fans than Jedward?’.
