1. A television corporation that many believe to have ruined music in itself. This, explained by Ozzy Osbourne, is because it took away all the excitement of listening to your favourite music, as before MTV existed people physically had to go watch their favourite bands play (whereas today, people have particularly easy--or lazy--access to their favourite music on television).
1. I wonder what the world would be like if MTV hadn't come along ...four thousand times better, perhaps?

MTV has just launched their new logo for their little brother channel MTV2 and have been aggressively promoting it since the last Superbowl. I know that malicious companies like to show their true intentions through symbolic logos. I have to hand it to to people behind the scenes at MTV; they must really think that nobody knows what they are really up to. Let’s just take the new logo their using “a two-headed dog?” Their just seemed something too evil about that. I knew that the Cerberus guarded the gates of Hades, but that one had three heads. I searched further and found the story posted above and it makes total sense now. MTV is the Orthrus and is guarding the captive cattle, “the dazed hive-mentality youth of today.” The conditioning has been there for a long time and now they are just getting an extra laugh rubbing in our face in plain view. We know now that MTV is the cattle herder, but what is the real monster that it’s working for?
Eurystheus, for his tenth labor, gave Heracles the task of bringing back the cattle, which belonged to the monster Geryon. This involved killing the sentinels who watched over the cattle and their master, then, driving the herd over land and sea back to Greece single handed, which made this a very precarious adventure. This monstrous beast was the son of Chrysaor, which makes him nephew of the Gorgon, Medusa. Geryon had three bodies, six arms, six legs and three heads and his appearance was that of a warrior. He lived on Erytheia, a mythical island far to the west, Geryon was the owner of huge herds of cattle, and they were protected by the herdsman Eurythion and the two-headed watch-dog Orthrus.

Cable television station. Acronym (ironically) stands for "Music TeleVision." The only shows you'll actually find are contrived so-called "reality" shows like Road Rules and Real World where a bunch of overpriveleged 21-year olds sit around their rooms all day and night while exotic locales most of us will never see exist 20 feet outside their doors and bitch about how much they hate wheover's not in the room at that particular moment.
I thought I saw a music video on MTV last night in between episodes of "Real World Beirut" and "Real World Sri Lanka" but it was just a Panteen commerical.

A horrible channel that brainwashes stupid people into becoming stupier by making them like poser crap such as Good Charolte, Avril lavgine, Slipknot, Present day Rap, ect. Also the channel is about 99% reality shows and 1% music. The channel used to be good in the 80's and early 90's but then TRL came on and in 1998 MTV stopped caring about music and became an evil corporation devoted to make american Pre-teens buy useless sh*t. MTV then came out with MTV2 which promised to be a channel devoted entirely to music video's but only played rap video's. Finnaly MTV2 broke it's promise and now plays 99% reality shows.
If you watch MTV then your head will explode.
