This year pitching to get Therapy? up the charts...
good song but really, this is terribly embarrassing.
But it'll never happen. There's always about 40 different "alt" songs competiing.
Although Screamager is good as it's kinda about bands like 1Direction .
But yeah, this whole anti-X factor thing had its day in 2009 with the RATM thing (not saying that wasn't embarrassing, but it worked). Its really a pointless idea that had its day and now literally nobody cares.
felt a bit sorry for little Joe though. We smashed a poor boy's dream.
He'd worked so hard and really deserved it.
and the fact it means killing in the name of gets played more is a sad sad fact
and a load of people buying a 20 year old track from one of the biggest rock bands in the world ever.
but totally can't see the point of any of these "Get XXX To Number One" campaigns. Anything, once it has been done, gets so many imitators that the effect is diluted beyond belief - and a lot of chancers get involved too (which is not what I'm suggesting has happened here).

It's just a nice way of shitting on a young persons dreams. Only 99p, don't be so mean spirited.
by being promised any kind of lasting fame, as far as I'm concerned.
