Not content with what many saw as a bullying campaign against Joe McElderry last Christmas. Rage Against the Machine have again had a go at Joe McElderry’s career as they seek to whip up a storm for their “Free” gig in the UK this year.

Jake Who, their lead singer spoke to the Toronto Sun about the band’s plans to have Su Bo at the Concert. Naturally RATM couldn’t help but have another dig at Joe McElderry to gain yet more publicity off of the back of the X Factor winner.

Jake Whoever said “I don’t think anybody has heard anything of that Joe guy since 
Christmas, but we have nothing against him. The truth is Simon’s 
shows occasionally produce talent. We love Susan Boyle, she is 
hot … To show there are no hard feelings we would like her to 
perform with us onstage this summer. She is a great vocalist and we 
would love to perform Killing in the Name with her. Everybody knows 
her in the U.S. and she can add her vocals to anything. It would be 
an honour for us”

    RATM the first 3 letters of their name says it all. Obviously the idiots are not aware Joe has been working on his X Factor tour for the past 2mths, readying for his first hit album. That is why no one (RATM) has heard where Joe is from their point of view. Ignorant people, pity they didn’t catch his X Factor show.
    On the positive side, as long as they mention they beat Joe at christmas time, Joe will always be remembered as the Pop Star they robbed because of their selfishness & arrogance. Joe is only 18 now but will be around for another 25yrs when they have faded into obscurity, are pensioners or in their graves.
    Go on Joe, upward & onwards. Follow your dream son & keep your eye on the ball.You are already as star – over 6million voted for you remember that always. They believed in you Joe and America will love you as we do. Shame we could not vote
    Grandma Hilda is so proud of you as is your entire family, Cheryl & the public. Good Luck to you Joe. Can not wait for your hit album. xxFans from Australia & New Zealand

    ratm is all mouth and trousers , probably cant read or they would know joe has been active ever since he was crowned xfactor winner . hes been on tour and opened the awards at the 02 arena, presented awards to the troops , visited sick people with cancer ,sang in the haiti record to raise money . need i go on ? what have we heard of them since christmas ? only that they have to give a free concert to keep in the limelight and even then they need the help of susan boyle to get people to go and see them. joes fans love him old to young . joes a natural star and does not have to even try . every performance of xfactor tour was sold out . you got nothing to worry about joe your our star and all your fans will follow u .

  5. len hudson says:

    how could i have forgot joe also got a platinum award . did ratm ?

  6. maeve says:

    i think ratm are spoiled biggoted old men who havnt got an ounce of decency in them to try and rob a nice young lad of a chance to fame,one point i would like to make until they did this nasty thing i had never even heard of them ,so where did they crawl up from because people i speak to never heard of them either,so i say crawl back from whence you came “OLD”lads.

  7. Harri_McElderry says:

    Joe is amazing and we won’t forget about him!
    Rage against the Machine are soo annoying and they should just go away and leave people like Joe to begin their career!!!

  8. luleka says:

    IF possible could Joe management stop entertaining news of this group on his sites because they are getting the satisfaction and the attention they so want . We are almost mid of 2010 still on about xmas .We are eager to hear about Joe ‘s progress than these .

  9. jovine says:

    Stupid vulgar RATM are once again trying to get publicity off the back of Joe.
    The are way past their sell by date while Joe is only 18 and has a fantastic career ahead of him.. Fact RATM cannot sing, fact they sold their song on the net not in the record shops. Fact, Joe was awarded a platinum disc for his. Fact, JOE did make no 1 and sold more discs than RAM.Fact, people (sheep) only bought their record because they didn’t like the x factor, they probably will never even listen to it. As for Joe not being heard of since Christmas, LEN HUDSON said it all.

  10. len hudson says:

    luleka, u hit the nail right on the head , thats how they are getting in the press by downing joe . its the same with jedward they have had a lot said about them in the press and joe has never said anything but praise for them yet they also has a go at joe about how they dont stand there and just sing . well for one thing they cant sing and now joe wont be around with them any more (hopefully) they will just fade away . but joe will be going for a long time , ratm will go down like a stone in water as will hedward . ratm is not doing themselves any favours attacking joe , people never forget and it will go against them .jedward performed at a gay club ,what does that tell u , it speaks volumes to me

  11. Dina says:

    Joe is all of them put together and is a threat to rage and they know this. As for what they might have against Simon, stop using innocent people who come on these shows and use them to get to Simon and although its not taken to heart what you are doing to Joe, he shows me he’s a better person then the bunch of you. Shame . leave him alone, what has Joe done to any of you, other then use a god given talent which leaves me and other’s speechless, including making his family very proud. . and what is wrong with that I ask you? .Stop what ever you are doing NOW!!! Just because Joe hasn’t been heard since Christmas, why should he play into your spoil little child games. He’s here for a long time and hasn’t even reached his full potential guys.Exciting to
    know there is alot more where that is all coming from. Maybe the RAGE should try to see what
    they can do to help Joe, instead of always harming any progression he is trying to make in the music industry.

  12. Dina says:

    Joe, you have fans in North American . Come here soon!!!!

  13. Firstly…. the singer’s name is Zach De La Rocha… do some research before you post ‘news’

    Secondly, Rage clearly said they had nothing against Joe, merely ‘we haven’t heard anything from him’ which to be fair, is true. They clearly weren’t using him to publicize themselves… they were making a passing comment.

    Rage didn’t start the campaign at Christmas, nor did they have anything to do with it. Their fans merely decided to buy their single to try and make them number 1…

    Also, all of you commenting on this should really do your research, fair enough RATM aren’t your taste in music, but they have been around for YEARS. They are such a big deal that, despite splitting up for 8 years, when they reformed in 2008 they headlined the Reading Festival.

    ALL of their albums went platinum – they are very popular. They were HUGE before the christmas campaign, and if you say you haven’t heard of them, it doesn’t mean they are BAD it simply means you don’t open your eyes beyond the music that TV and Radio tell you to listen to. There are so many amazing musicians, you don’t have to wait until a TV talent show tells you to listen to someone. Do some research and find your own taste in music.

    They aren’t the same genre of music so anyone who thinks Rage felt threatened is simply a fool. They don’t compare.

    Rage have never been in the game for celebrity status, they want to raise awareness of political issues all over the world. Read their lyrics, you’ll see. Plus the reason they broke up is because Zach thought they were getting TOO famous and people weren’t taking notice of their message.

    Joe is a talented singer… but he has yet to prove himself as a great artist. Just because you can sing doesn’t mean you can write music or are a talented musician. Rage write their own songs, Tom Morello is an amazing guitarist.

    Whoever runs this site, please leave my comment here, don’t delete it. Don’t you think your readers should know some real facts about the band they are arguing against?

    I have nothing against Joe, he deserved to win X Factor, I just think he needs to prove that he is more than just a good singer. Beyonce is a great example of what an incredible pop artist should be… she deserves her fame because not only can she sing, she dances, writes and acts. If Joe can do at least some of that then he will deserve all the popularity he gets.

    It would be a ‘lifesaver’ for the forgotten hasbeens and I’m sure SuBo wouldn’t entertain the thought :lol:

  18. Ted Carlin-S.F., CA says:

    I did notice that Joe had nothing bad to say about RATM. In fact he wished them well.
    I think their real battle is mainly to get number one, and their anger is aimed a Simon Cowell. I feel they see him like a large corporation that smothers the competition.
    I myself came to respect him more during the 2009, season, because of the way he treated Joe and the other competitors, I can now see he too has feelings. It’s hard to play the devils advocate all the time.
    As for Joy, with a voice like that, and his ability to pull at one’s hart; it doesn’t matter what anybody says. I’ll take odds this kid will be around for generations.
    I know his songs move me. So what if I cry at chick-flicks. By the way; I also like RATM.

    In my last comment I typed Joy, but ment to type Joe. Did I mention I’m dislexic? lol
