Cable television station originally devoted to showing music videos, hence the abbreviation for "Music Television." Over twenty years, it gradually phased out music except for a tiny bit of top-40 pop and rap, replacing videos with cartoons, game shows, reality shows, and other gen-x/y pseudo-hipster fare.
Destroys music and brainwashes little kids and turns them into perverts and basketcases and makes them grow up to be miserable,selfish,vain,shallow adults (if you can call that "growing up")
Mtv was NEVER any good EVER.The "only" good show Mtv ever had was Beavis and Butthead.In the entire History of Mtv I've only seen about 10 good videos.
Since nearly 50 people have already said the things I would say about MTV (its really really gay), I'll just make a few other comments....
Do you notice how all the people here who have praised MTV have misspelled nearly every word in their entry? They're nothing but a bunch of hip-hop, pop culture
retards who have been brainwashed by today's society.
And yes, MTV DOES have its share of good shows, like Beavis and Butthead and even Jackass... BUT GUESS WHAT!!!! THOSE SHOWS DO *NOT* BELONG ON MTV!!!!! THEY BELONG ON SOMETHING LIKE COMEDY CENTRAL!!!!
So please! Stop using those shows as a reason to give good marks to MTV...they don't count!!!!
Evil.Way worse for the country than pot could ever be.
The little kids watched Mtv and started fuckin too young and ended up at the RAVE party,had group sex,and OD'd on a coctail of some really fucked up gay drugs like Ecstasy,Ketamine,GHB etc.
Manufacturer of teeny boppers.
Wow I watched MTV TRL and learned how to be punk like Good Charlote and Anvil Lagivngeiehaoidhsiod. Tee hee hee.
sigh... i hate mtv. Music Television...BULLSHIT! It should be called: Cable Channel Now Dedicated To Whiny 20 Year Old Bitches Living In A Huge Fuckin' Mansion. They used to be great, but unfortunately, I was young when that channel was great. Example:
1994: MTV Unplugged In New York, One of Nirvana's last concerts.
Now: SPRING BREAK! WHOO! ILL DO ANYTHING TO GET ON THE CAMERA! WHOO!11!1
A history of MTV: 80's=Low Budget music videos of good songs.
Early 90's: Brief period of time when MTV played MUSIC!
Late 90's: The beginning of the end, as TRL is introduced.
New Millenium: Overcommercialized, rap ruled crap channel that annoying bitches watch.
A channel devoted to reality programming and catering to its youth infested demographic.
I don't want my MTV. I'd rather have AIDS.
One of the worst music channels around (besides B.E.T.).
What ever happened to all the good music, you bastards?!? Its a good thing we still have a good music channel left....like Fuse.
