Fans Pushing To Make Eagles Of Death Metal No. 1 Following Attacks

(Classic Rock) A campaign has been launched to get Eagles Of Death Metal to no.1 in the UK singles chart following Friday's Paris terror attacks. The band's performance at the Bataclan was at the centre of a string of coordinated attacks in the French capital, for which extremist group IS has claimed responsibility.

At least 89 rock fans were killed at the gig, with a total of 129 murdered across the city by gunmen and suicide bombers. Fans have launched a campaign to get Eagles Of Death Metal's cover of Duran Duran hit Save A Prayer to the top of the chart. EODM's version features on their latest album Zipper Down.

They were joined by Duran Duran for a performance of the song on Channel 4 show TFI Friday on October 30. Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon has vowed to donate any royalties his band are due from sales of the song to good causes. Le Bon says via Twitter: "Duran Duran will donate all proceeds due to us, from this version. Considering options that are useful, peaceful and uniting."

The campaign is being circulated on social media using the hashtag #EODMforno1. The midweek chart placing show the track sitting at number 96, with that expected to rise before the final placing are announced on Friday. Read more here.
