There is a TV show in Australia called Rage and artists and bands come on and pick there fav songs or video clips. So back in 1994 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds toured for Let Love In and Nick Cave was asked to pick his fav video chips, it was air on Christmas Eve.

Talking about some of the video Nick just say the same thing over and over which was "This is __________ and are one of the greatest song or artist and I urge you to go out and buy it" but one funny thing did happened at the almost end when talking about Bob Dylan which he was saying he can't so he's going to talk about his son Jesse who did the new video chip at the time for the new single but Nick Cave forget the name of his own song, he was reminded by someone you could not see on screen, the song was Red Right Hand.
