Over the weekend, the members of young British band Viola Beach, along with their manager, sadly lost their lives in a car accident in Sweden.
The five men were travelling to the airport after playing a gig at Sweden's Where's the Music? festival when their car plunged into a canal from an 80-foot high bridge.
A number of well-known stars have been backing a campaign to get their single 'Swings & Waterslides' to number one following the tragedy, including Liam Gallagher and The Stone Roses, who have tweeted their support.

At time of writing, the song is riding high in the iTunes charts and has entered the UK's Top 40, although its final position won't be known until the end of the week. All proceeds from the single will be donated to the family members of the band and their manager Craig Tarry, their record label Communion Music announced the other day.
