Eagles of Death Metal were the band playing the Bataclan venue in Paris on Friday, during the terror attacks.
Now there’s a fan-led campaign on Facebook to get the band to number one in the UK as “a statement of peace, love, and support… Just an idea which is another way of showing support for the band and those affected, but in no way intended as a frivolous gesture”.
The campaign is encouraging people to buy and stream the band’s cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Save a Prayer’, with that band’s Simon Le Bon having already said they’ll “donate all proceeds due to us, from this version.
Considering options that are useful, peaceful and uniting”. The Official Charts Company said yesterday that the song was number 96 in its chart update, but expects it to climb over the next few days.
