NME recently had a contest to see which song would launch the new NME radio station. Oasis were leading all votes with What's the Story Morning Glory as Polls closed. But to our surprise a Muse song won (how that happened nobody at NME fucking cares to explain)
It seems that our buddies at the largest Coldplay forum had a plan in place on how to topple Oasis from #1
Coldplay fans were urged to give Oasis the lowest number (1) and use an autorefresh program to cast Coldplay votes. Although they failed in winning the contest one can only wonder what other sites went through to get their results......
I also posted a comment on my blog as to why Oasis had not been the first song played on it's radio.
I emailed The NME and i'm as yet to get a reply as to why the voting was not stopped at 5PM as it stated on the NME website.
Loads of Oasis fans emailed in the NME yesterday on various other sites and forums, and as yet none have had a reply.
