It also won the 1985 Brit Award for Best British Single. Their debut album, Welcome to the Pleasuredome, reached number one in the UK in 1984 with advanced sales of over one million. After the follow-up success of “Two Tribes” and “The Power of Love”, the group became only the second act in the history of the UK charts to reach number one with their first three singles; the first being fellow Liverpudlians Gerry and the Pacemakers from the 1960s.
Rage Hard – The Song
Rage Hard is the fifth single by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It was released on 25 August 1986.

Taking on a rockier edge, “Rage Hard” was the first single culled from the disc. The single’s title came from the Dylan Thomas poem “Do not go gentle into that good night”. “Rage Hard” was a testament to the changing musical landscape in Britain at the time.
