The best music show ever
8 March 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Rage would undoubtedly be the best music show ever made. They play all the latest music videos plus have all the greatest bands come in and host the show every now and then and let them choose their favourite music videos of all time. Each week they also do the nationwide top 50 countdown of the highest selling CD singles for the week. They have had bands and artists such as Marilyn Manson, Hole, Blink 182, Muse, Jane's Addiction, Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Fatboy Slim and many others come in to host the show. Rage would also be the longest running free to air music video show in the world with runtimes which usually consist of 12 hours straight at times.
