Watch Every Single Episode Of Rage From 1998 To 2012

This is seriously amazing. It's a gorgeous web-based player (which also works on mobile) that lets you stream every single episode of the ABC's iconic music video show RAGE all the way back to 1998.

It's called Rage Again, and it comes from the mind of Patrick Galbraith, who spent what must have been months trawling the old program listings to and compiling the relevant YouTube tracks to match.

Patrick explains how he put it together on his blog:

Since 1998 RAGE has posted all their episode playlists online. So I created a website that combines these playlists with YouTube allowing you to travel back through time and re-experience RAGE's recent history.

Scraping the data (particularly the 90s web pages) wasn't easy due to broken and inconsistent markup so I have posted a database dump in case anyone else wants to play with the data.

Episodes are ordered beautifully by date and hovering over an episode marked "S" shows you if it's a special episode, while a tiny dialog box indicates who was the guest programmer.

How long would it take to watch every RAGE episode since 1998 back-to-back? 1 year, 356 days, 17 hours, and 1 minute according to Patrick. That's 269,938 tracks in case you were wondering.

Standing internet ovation to Patrick for this. [Rage Again via Reddit]

    Oh my god. This is awesome.

      Wonder if this includes video from the artists when its a special episode with a guest.

    This is awesome.

    Some of the dates are broken - or maybe they aren't.
    I just got rolled on the 15th of May '99.

      Useless fact, that was my 18th Birthday :)

    Someone should make a spotify app.

    Awesome, will have to check it out over the weekend.

    Wish it was original Rage video. Still awesome though.

    So cool! Now someone needs to get started on porting this as an XBMC add on and I know what'll be on at my house all the time. Rage channel anyone?

    God dammit, rick-rolled the first date I clicked on!

    I remember the rage lists from before youtube and before I had decent bandwidth... I used to check the page to see if there was anything worth watching that night

    This is mind bogglingly Awesome! I haven't watch Rage for years because it is on late and bacuse I had to watch a bunch of tracks I wasn't that interested in to get to the ones that I was interested in. Now I can skip to the next track. This is Totally Awesome!

    RaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

    I'm quite surprised noone else did that.

    This is good.
    12 feb 1999 first song Kula Shaker - Mystical Machine Gun , but Silverchair Year 2000 played instead.
    Small blip, but overall this is great. Great for streaming to the TV on a lazy afternoon, parties or anything.
    Rage Channel Indeed.
