By now, you’re probably aware of Rage Against the Machine’s suprising battle for England’s Christmas #1, well, today the band played their best-known hit song from 1992 on Radio Five Live’s Breakfast show. And it did not go as planned. As these things often do; especially when you consider the chorus of the song goes something like, “fuck you I won’t do what you tell me” ad infinitum.
“We asked them not to do it and they did it anyway,” said BBC presenter Shelagh Fogarty, regarding the barage of F-bombs the band unleashed onto the airwaves.
Currently, RATM is still in the lead for the coveted prize of Christmas #1. Good times all around.
