Rage first entered the shadowy world of late night television in April 1987. With the arrival of 24hr transmission, there was a deep, dark TV void that the ABC wanted filled.

ABC producer Mark Fitzgerald had Rage in mind. His idea? An all night music video show which would play the video, the whole video and nothing else. No presenters, no distractions, no interruptions.

Well, virtually no interruptions. There were of course those distinctive r-r-r-r-r-r-r-rage screams which - love or hate them - seem to have become part of our collective subconscious.

With the arrival of Rage, an Australian tradition developed. It's a tradition of bleary eyed Australians sitting on their couches at 4:00 am thinking "I'll just watch one more, then I'm going to bed... just one more...just one more..."

The guest programmers entered Rage's late night landscape in 1990. Mark Fitzgerald, producer/ programmer Stephanie Lewis, and musician Damien Lovelock had thrown the idea around for a while. In January 1990 the idea finally hit the screen.

Rage guest programmers were handed the show for a night. They would host Rage, choose all the music and explain their choices. It was a concept that went against the idea of interruption-free music videos, but guest programmers seemed an interruption worth having.

Since 1990, Rage has been asking influential musicians to choose the music which has most influenced them. Certain songs just kept appearing on their guest lists. Not surprisingly, they were often songs with great videos, but they were more than that. They were important, beautiful, powerful, inventive, groundbreaking songs.

In early, 1998 we decided to look back at the programming lists and collect a list of the songs most chosen. We've put them together for this - our first ever Rage album
