Rave sites involved images of people dancing to various rave songs, sometimes holding glowsticks. These images are flashy and have different colors. Though there were various attempts since the start of ytmnd, it wasn't until May 2005 that the rave fad kicked off.
First successful rave site
Around May 2005, the user rogerpyoko created a site called "LASER RAVE", which showed various robots from the cartoon Transformers shooting laser and appearing to be raving. The song choice was "Evolution (Time Is Pop)" by J-Pop artist Ayumi Hamasaki. The site quickly took in a high rating and has amounted over 175,000 views. Shortly after, rave sites were created using that song "Time Is Pop".
Other song choices
Shortly after, rave sites began to use a variety of songs. Some of the most popular ones include:
- "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation, used in a lot of Zombie-styled raves (eg, )
- "Supernova" by Transa (eg, )
- "Sandstorm" by Darude ( eg )
All four songs can be found on the YTMND Soundtrack:
- "Evolution (Time Is Pop)" - Volume 5
- "Sandstorm" - Volume 7
- "Supernova" - Volume 8
- "Kernkraft 400" - Volume 10
In addition, various songs will often be remixed into rave songs using either audiotools, or the internet to find various remixes. Some fads may be remixed into "rave remixes" with their dialogue set to the music.
