And the winner is......

Rage Against The Machine! They've defeated the stupid X Factor song by over 50,000 copies. Well done everyone, expect the band to announce a FREE show in the UK sometime soon. We'll keep you updated.

In your face, Joe McElderry, after such derogative comments as these the other day:

"They can't be serious! I had no idea what it sounded like. It's dreadful and I hate it. How could anyone enjoy this? Can you imagine the grandmas hearing this over Christmas lunch? I wouldn't buy it. It's a nought out of ten from me. Simon Cowell wouldn't like it. They wouldn't get through to boot camp on The X Factor - they're just shouting.

UPDATE, comment from Zach De La Rocha, the vocalist of RATM:

We're very very ecstatic and excited about the song reaching the Number One spot and I just want to say we want to thank everyone for participating in this incredible, organic grass roots campaign. It's more about the spontaneous action taken by young people in the UK to topple this very sterile pop monopoly. When young people decide to take action they can make what's seemingly impossible, possible. We intend to make right on that promise (to play) and we will get together in 2010. We will definitely be there to celebrate with everyone in the UK
