    While I think that Simon Cowell is a raging faggot and doesn't deserve best whatever it is, I also don't care enough to form a goddamn coalition against him.

    Jesus, people just don't have lives anymore.


    Meanwhile -pirates this song-

    I honestly couldn't give a damn what gets to Christmas number 1. Do people have nothing better to do then start groups like this?

    Don't the ones that cost more than 65P actually count and the ones priced less don't count towards the chart?

    The UK top 40 hasn't meant anything for years but still I'd still love to see this happen, sure its not that important but it would be nice.

    Its funny Simon Cowell is saying now that he "saved us from novelty Xmas #1's" with all these X-Factor releases but he was the one who was responsible for most of the novelty songs and to be honest, rather "Bob The Builder" than Westlife.

    Listen... both of those songs are in the same record label.... So it doesn't matter who "wins."

    Its was on GMTV this morning [​IMG] They both count even though they are less than the normal amount required , duno why though.

    And yeh tbh top 40 doesn't mean much, but it would be funny if he failed at ''what he does best''

    Why hold Simon Cowell personally responsible? Blame the sheep who buy his records.

    I totally gave up on the charts and the music industry in general when Coldplay were defeated by Axel F by the Crazy Frog (the biggest desecration of a classic tune since G4 covered Bohemian Rhapsody, another X Factor by-product) for number one on Top Of The Pops way back. A great band being beaten by a fucking ringtone designed to annoy people. Then they compounded the insult by having people break-dance to the ringtone while the camera occasionally panned to the stunned Coldplay. You can see the look in their eyes. It's that look of 'what the fuck just happened?'

    I would like to see Cowell taken down a peg or two though. Preferably via the medium of a crossbow bolt to the testicles. But given how high he wears his trousers (IE: with the belt around his eyebrows), the assassin will probably get confused and hit him in the neck by mistake.

    Simon Cowell is a n00b and uses IE7 with vista and uses MS paint for picture editing

    I thought no one paid attention to ANY top charts anymore, it's not the 80s, we have the internet, who needs charts made by faggots who don't know shit about music and only got the job because their dad's friend works in the industry and owes your dad a favor?

    UK charts never bother me much anyway, even though I live in the UK. Most of my favourite bands are from outside the UK and aren't as well known as they should be (IE: Black Stone Cherry, who are almost unknown here. Saw them in concert in Birmingham, they were AWESOME). The UK charts basically boil down to whatever bollocks X Factor has pumped out, the latest chav music like N-Dubz and the latest girl band getting by on the size of their knockers instead of any genuine talent.

    Its currently no.1, look this isnt about the charts its about the fact that we're trying to take a stand against crappy synthed pop music that these producers make to exploit lil kids and ignorant middle aged people who have no other medium than whats on the radio to listen to music.

    I'm voting for Billy Mack to take the #1 song this Christmas. Rumor has it, he'll get nekkid if he wins.

    On a more serious note: These kinds of things are bullshit. It's been tried before, and someone will try to do it again. What's the REAL purpose behind this? To shut up Simon Cowell? No. Its to allow some douche to say "I STARTED THIS INTERNETS TREND!! I WINS!!!"

    Would it shut Simon Cowell up? No. Would he even give two shits about it? Probably not.

    But, if you're going to participate in this, i've received a few emails about Microsoft sending out checks with lots of money based upon how many people i forward it to. You want free money? [​IMG]

    (ps- as for "taking a stand against crappy synthpop music," if you think THIS will stop it, the last 20+ years of crappy synth-pop music would like to talk with you [​IMG] It's like saying killing The Jonas Brothers will stop irritating kid-pop. I mean, they deserve to die anyway, but the greater good would not be accomplished [​IMG])

    No thanks... I cannot stand Rage Against the Machine.

    If I wanted to hear angry people yelling I'd go and visit my parents [​IMG]
