Eagles Of Death Metal's Save A Prayer is hurtling towards this week's Top 40

The track charges up the Official Singles Chart overnight thanks to a fan-led online campaign.

Eagles Of Death Metal's Save A Prayer could enter this week's Official Chart Top 40 as a fan-led campaign to get the song to Number 1 following the tragic Paris terror attacks grows.  

The band's cover of the Duran Duran track has leaped a massive 52 places overnight and currently sits at Number 44 on today's sales flash (November 17). And with three days of sales left until this week's Official Chart is announced, it could climb even further. 

Over 12,000 people have signed up to the campaign's Facebook page, which pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks, some of the worst of which took place during the group's concert at music venue Le Bataclan. 87 civilians killed during the show, including the group’s merchandise seller, 36 year old Briton, Nick Alexander.

Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon has responded to the campaign, ensuring the band will donate all proceeds due to them for the song.
