X Factor Geordie: "Killing In The Name Is Dreadful And I Hate It"

willy Willy-sized Geordie TV pop poppet Joe "Elderberry" McElderry has finally gotten around to listening to Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name', and - shock horror - it's not to his tastes.

Before we go on, let us remind ourselves of his "tastes":

"Chart, chart really," he told the BBC this week. "I like pretty much all chart music."

Anyway. Back to the point. Evil newswipe The Sun played him Rage's song, which is his main rival for the oh-so coveted UK Christmas number one slot, and it hurt his pointy little pixie ears, so it did.

"They can't be serious!" he squeaked, Geordishly. "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."


Yes, yes it is kid. Just shouting.

Saying that, he was being quoted in The Sun, so they could toally have made it up. Anyway, the kid's entitled to his opinion, but methinks he overstepped the line somewhat by posing for those pictures in which he's sticking darts in Rage frontman Zack de la Rocha. That pretty much asking to get stabbed in the temples by angry drunks, karmically. And they do that, remember Brian Harvey and the machette?
