Rage Against The Machine's chart triumph in pictures

Simon Cowell has admitted he is "gutted" that X Factor winner Joe McElderry was beaten to this year's Christmas Number One by Rage Against The Machine. McElderry's ballad 'The Climb' sold around 50,000 copies fewer than 'Killing In The Name', originally released in 1992.
