Facebook could boost ACDC to Christmas Number One

Fri, 22 Nov 2013
Social media strikes again as fans of AC/DC attempt to boost the band to get the coveted Christmas No.1, and beat this year's X Factor winner, Lilly Allen, and Susan Boyle.

The Facebook campaign encourages lovers of the band and haters of the reality TV show to download the track 'Highway to Hell' between the 15th and the 21st of December, to ensure it gets to number on in the Christmas week.

It sounds like a mammoth task, to rally enough support to take on Simon Cowell's nationwide cult of XFactor lovers, but it is not an insurmountable challenge. 2009 saw the notorious event of Rage Against the Machine's track 'Killing in the Name' hit number one and steal the title from X Factor winner Joe McElderry.

By December 15th of 2009, the 'Killing in the Name' Facebook campaign had a reported 750,000 members. The new 'Highway to Hell' campaign only currently has 135,000, but there is still plenty of time left.

The campaign is also battling against the likes of Lilly Allen, with her cover of the Keane song from THAT Christmas advert we've all seen and heard so much about, Susan Boyle, Jack Topping, and that surprising internet hit from Ylvis: 'What does the Fox Say?'

So if you're tired of the same, highly produced music that swamps the media every year at Christmas, why not download the track (after the 15th). After all, it's a long way to the top, but AC/DC could still blow away the competition like T.N.T and leave Mr. Cowell thunderstruck... (See what I did there?)
