The DJ who managed to get Rage Against The Machine to Christmas number one in a protest against Simon Cowell’s X Factor has joined a campaign hoping to get the late Rik Mayall’s World Cup song "Noble England" to the top of the charts.
In 2010 Rik Mayall recorded a song called 'Noble England' on the eve of that year's World Cup in South Africa. Sadly on the eve of this year's World Cup we lost Rik, so a few of us thought it would be a nice idea to try and get him in the charts as a tribute to a legend.We are just 3 Rik fans hoping to give him a good send off!
The Facebook group has already received over 10,000 likes and a Twitter account has also been launched.
And DJ Jon Morter, who organised the 2009 protest against X Factor, has now joined their cause.
It would be a great thing for Rik's memory. He was a comedy legend. Rage Against The Machine was more of a protest whereas this campaign seems to be a way of displaying respect. It's a vehicle for a lot of people to say something and it would be a great accolade.In 2010 the song didn't do so well because there were so many others out there. It's a cruel irony that on the eve of the World Cup we have lost him. It's now time for everyone to wake up to this fantastic song.
