Fun Fun Fun in the fluffy chair
Flame up the herb
Woof down the beer

Hi, I'm your video DJ. I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes. I wear a satin baseball jacket everywhere I go. (Yes, I know. No one wears a satin jacket anyone unless it's a throwback - RR)

My job is to help destroy what's left of your imagination, by feeding you endless doses of sugar-coated mindless garbage.

So don't create, be sedate. Be a vegetable at home and thwack on that dial. If we have our way even you will believe this is the future of rock and roll

(background: MTV GET OFF THE AIR)

How far will you go?
how low will you stoop?
To tranquilize our minds with your sugar-coated poop?

You've turned rock and roll rebellion
Into Pat Boone sedation; making sure nothing's left to the imagination.

M.T.V. Get off the
M.T.V. Get off the
M.T.V. Get off the air
Get off the air

See the latest rejects from the muppet show wag their tits and their dicks as they lip-synch on screen.
There's something I don't like about a band who always smiles.
Another tax write-off for some schmuck who doesn't care.

M.T.V. Get off the air!

And so it was, our beloved corporate gods claimed they created rock video.
Allowing it to sink as low in one year
As commercial TV has in 25.
"It's the new frontier," they say.
It's wide open, anything can happen
But you've got a lot of nerve to call yourself a pioneer when you're too god-damn conservative to take real chances.

Tin-eared graph-paper brained accountants instead of music fans call all the shots at giant record companies now.

The lowest common denominator rules
Forget honesty
Forget creativity
The dumbest buy the mostest
That's the name of the game

But sales are slumping
And no one will say why
Could it be they put out one too many lousy records?!? (Yes, hell yes - RR)
M.T.V. Get off the air!

An evil corporation trying to brainwash the youth that nothing except being popular matters, and that you have to look good to be of any value, or else you are worthless. They also try to make kids think that blink 182 is "punk", even though they play no actual punk music, most of it is just rap.
MTV sucks.

A facist organization that contributes to the brainwashing of american youth - forcing the following:
1. Fashion (bad fashion)
2. Sex
3. Eating disorders
4. Bad Music
5. Censorship

eMpTyV is the devil in disguise. Boycott at all costs.
While in the public restroom, i heard 14 year old girls talking about the latest video on MTV and how it inspired them to throw up today's lunch.

The reason modern music is dead.
Ever since MTV existed, everybody starts to bleed internaly when music comes on.

Music Television.

Channel that was launched on 8/1/1981 on cable. It used to show non-stop music videos and had 5 veejeays in the early 80s. The 80s and early 90s were pretty good for MTV, until it suddenly became more about teen issues than music. Now it's one of the dumbest channels out there.
If you want real music then watch VH1. Don't watch this shit on MTV.

A channel that turns America's teens into mindless fuckholes who group themselves in large masses and scream whenever they see one of their dumbass pop idols come out. Constant exposure to MTV has been known to turn guys into fags and girls into dykes. The most accurate record of this is when the slut Britney Spears kissed the bi Madonna on the MTV music awards and officially became a lesbo, although thousands of 50 year old crusty men beat their meat to it.
My girlfriend watched so much MTV that now she goes to SpringBreak each year and takes 100 cocks a day.

A deadly and evil entity capable of emitting powerful waves of superficiality that can reduce a teenager's brain mass into excrement in mere seconds. Disguises nefarious intentions of gaining wealth from the idiotic with incessant marketing/brainwashing. Research has shown that 98 percent of MTV's audience exhibit an IQ below that of a rotting corpse. Experts recommend immediate evasion of anything affiliated with MTV, including its viewers. Many a douchebag has been manufactured via watching MTV. Females hooked on MTV usually prefer to mate with douchebags rather than humans. The music shown on MTV represents the lowest grade of musical quality existing anywhere on Earth, possibly even the universe.
The solution to MTV? None. Let other people watch it so they can become dumber than you.

If you like MTV in its current incarnation, you are one of the following:

1.) An emo/punk fag
2.) A wannabe "thug"
3.) The only person on the planet that likes U2
4.) A preppy girl who looks up to Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and JoJo.

There are many problems that people have with mTV nowadays; their constant playing of re-runs (usually of The Real World or Battle of the Sexes part MCLXVII), the fact that they barely ever play music anymore, and when they do, it's just shitty emo or some played-out rapper like Jay-Z. They are also way too concerned about you voting (for Kerry, anyway) and took all of their decent shows off the network like Jackass, Wildboys, and... huh, I guess that's it.
MTV is so bad nowadays that people are starting to miss Nu-Metal.
