The best music video show on Australian TV, until....
....The Top 50 comes on. Then it becomes seriously bogged down with banality. Wipe that smile off your face, you!. ;)
Whilst Rage's quality control, on what ends up on the screen, isn't exactly "controlled", it at least provides one with a heads-up on music that might actually be good out there (just not frequently played). Until the Top 50 starts.... Then we're given a view into the minds of Ritalin-munchers. ;)
Besides, this thing runs from midnight to dawn. Normal people are in bed, sleeping or doing other things that run under the category of "having a life", as difficult as that is for people who have a "left" or "right" wing media mentality to understand.... ;)
