Silence vs X-Factor

Over 4,000 people have joined a facebook group to get a piece of silence to number one this Christmas.

It's another attempt to overthrow the X Factor winner...whoever that may be.

The sound-free composition called 4'33" 'by' late composer John Cage is meant to be "played" by musicians who do not touch their instruments. It's up to the audience to listen for other noises in the room or venue.

Last Christmas Joe McElderry was the victim of a similar Facebook campaign that saw Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name Of’ reach No 1. However Joe reached No 1 a week later with 'The Climb'.

Supporters of silence can sign up for a reminder that will deliver a chart-eligible link to their inbox on December 13th.
