The Prodigy have issued a fresh plea to their fans to buy Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name'.

In a posting on the Braintree band's official website, Liam Howlett urged fans to “rise up against the 'industry manufactured shite'” of The X Factor and its winner Joe McElderry and buy the 1992 rock anthem.

He wrote: “yo, heres the deal, we r doing well with the 'getting rage to number 1' to fuk off 'cowell the machine ' campaign . it's currently ahead, but lets keep the pressure on. anyone out there who hasn't supported and bought the tune yet, get on itunes or whatever and do the right thing. this is the biggest rise up against the ' industry manufactured shite ' in years and thats why its important --- and fukin funny at the same time act now. power to the people ! LiaM H x”

Last week, Howlett announced The Prodigy's support for the 'Killing In The Name' Facebook campaign saying “We're buying Rage Against The Machine and so should you.”

Kelly Jones from the Stereophonics and comedians Stephen Fry, Ross Noble and Bill Bailey are amongst the other celebrity supporters of the Tracy and Jon Morter's campaign.

As some proceeds of the X Factor song are going to charity, those pledging their support to the RATM campaign can donate to Shelter - a charity helping the homeless - HERE.
