A campaign to get The Prodigy song ‘Firestarter’ to number one in the charts in tribute to Keith Flint is gaining momentum.
The singer of iconic dance act was confirmed as dead at the age of 49 after being found at his Essex home. An inquest, which has been looking into Flint’s tragic death, confirmed his suicide and declared his passing as “not suspicious”.
In tribute to Flint, a group of fans started a Facebook campaign in order to get the band’s most iconic song back to the top of the charts. “Rest in peace to the fire starter,” a petition begins its rallying cry. “Let’s make sure the fire continues,” it adds.
“We need to raise awareness of mental health issues and suicide. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and that needs to change! This is the best way to raise Keith’s profile and bring his plight to the forefront of pop culture and mainstream.
The petition continues: “If you don’t want to spend any money then place the song on repeat in a streaming platform such as Spotify or Deezer then mute it and leave it on. This will also count towards the charts.”
As more people become aware of the campaign, the Official Charts Company has confirmed that the song his climbed up to number 57 with fans having three more days to boost its position.
