The odds for Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name' to get to Number One spot ahead of this year's X Factor winner, has dropped from 100-1 to 3-1.

The Facebook group, which is urging members to download the song on December 13, has got bookmakers worried.

"The X Factor has had a monopoly over the Christmas Number One but there is a real buzz about Rage Against The Machine," William Hill's Rupert Adams said. "We might just have the biggest upset in Christmas chart history!"

The campaign, which currently has over 645,000 members, has already seen X Factor judge Simon Cowell brand the campaign as "stupid" and "cynical".
