British fans of the US rock band Eagles of Death Metal, which was playing at a Paris concert hall targeted in Friday’s attacks, have started a social media campaign to push one of its songs to number 1.

“Get Eagles Of Death Metal to the No.1 this week as a statement of support and peace,” read the description of the campaign @EODMforNo1 on Twitter on Monday.

A Facebook page calling on supporters to download the song “Save a Prayer,” a cover of Duran Duran’s hit single of the same name, had more than 6,500 “likes.”

Campaign organizers said the downloads would be “a nice gesture” and stressed they were not representing the band, who escaped unharmed, and this was not being done for profit.

The song is already at number three on the Amazon UK singles chart and number 1 on the iTunes rock chart.

It was at number 35 on the main iTunes chart.

The official UK singles charts are released on Friday.

Gunmen attacked an Eagles of Death Metal gig at the Bataclan in Paris on Friday, gunning down fans and blowing themselves up as police stormed the building.

The attack that claimed 89 lives — by far the worst loss of life of the night.
