Another weekend of Rage and this time, it's Fifty Shades Of Rage special and it's about the adults-only music videos and songs which got banned and censored on radio and music video shows along with MTV in America.
It's on 10.30am Saturday morning and 11.00pm Saturday night.
Hey Nicholas, are you sure you don't work for rage?
No, I'm just picking each special or guest programmer for you and the Countdown fams to watch before next year's Rage Goes Retro.
Here's an info of Fifty Shades Of Rage special:

WHITESNAKE Here I Go Again
CHRIS DE BURGH Lady In Red
MARVIN GAYE Sexual Healing
they're playing Sam Fox's 'Naughty Girls' and Sabrina's 'Sexy Girl'!
I suggested those on Facebook (though I hate visiting the rage page there... it's messy to read), I think a couple of weeks after they posted the topic, and they listened. I also suggested The 2 Live Crew's 'Me So Horny' and E-Rotic's 'Max Don't Have Sex With Your Ex' (which they've curiously listed as just 'Max' on the playlist), and they're there too.
Sabrina's 'Boys (Summertime Love)' appears twice on the playlist Maybe they're airing the uncensored version they normally air, and the black horizontal bars/letterboxed semi-censored version
Edit - oh, they fixed the duplicate 'Boys...' entries.
A few CAMP gems on rage tomorrow night on there BANNED videos special * Vanity 6 - Nasty Girls, Belouis Some - Imagination, Sabrina - Sexy Girl, Samantha Fox - Naughty Girls Need Love Too and Pet Shop Boys - Being Boring ... The rest is a yaaaaawn ...
Nathan, 'Sexy Girl' - Sabrina! Wasn't that originally on your programming list when you won the competition a few years ago. Didn't they say they didn't have it? So, a real treat tonight, hey? I will be glad to finally get the '87 clip of 'Here I Go Again' off rage and not the original 1982 version they always play. 'Rock Me Tonite' also a treat.
I'm hoping 'Girls On Film' is the extended, naughty version, but I'm thinking it might be too rude for rage. Dunno?
What's with 'Lady In Red'? I thought that clip was pretty lame in every way.
Good to see Billy Squire's Rock Me Tonite. Surprised Divinyls - I Touch Myself didn't make the cut.
D A M N you rage! They played the '82 version of 'Here I Go Again'. What is sexy about that clip? I was 100% sure it was the '87 version with the sexy woman all over the car.
On another note, 'Sexy Girl' cracks me up.
Yep, 'Girls on Film' was the extended and would have been the vid that lived up to this special.
Noticed Naughty Girls was a short version and not the extended (naughtier)version they used to play. Was great to see Imagination again. Had not seen that since the very early days of Rage
