A wordless song released by the anti-Islam group PEGIDA has knocked Adele off the top off the top of Amazon's German downloads chart. 
The song, Gemeinsam sind wir stark! or Together We Are Strong!, is being sold to raise funds for the protest movement, short for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident. 
The tune was made available to download from December 21 and has now overtaken Adele's Hello.
Amazon has pledged to donate its share of revenues from the sale of a song by the anti-Islam group PEGIDA to refugees, undermining the cause of the far-right movement. PEGIDA'S song "Together We Are Strong" can be downloaded for 1.29 euros ($1.4 dollars) on Amazon and has been on its top-100 list for several days. 
Next to the buy-button online, Amazon has posted a sentence saying "Amazon helps. The proceeds of selling this song will go to a charitable organization supporting refugees."

The tune doesn't seem to be available for sale in the UK Amazon.
