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 corporation soley dedicated to paying black dudes with no singing, rapping, or acting talent(nick cannon) to pretend that the live in the ghetto but are actually swimming in huge piles of thier own money, similar to wordnickelodeonword
Nick Cannon started rapping about how sad his life is, and proceeded to buy the entire cast free beers after the shooting of the 'music video'

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.

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.

The worst channel of all time today that's bringing kids in numerous generations to nothing but posers and wannabes. It's got only three shows that draw all the morons to the screen... Totally Rigged Live, Real World, and Road Rules. Real World, my ass... If you want the Real World, get the hell out of your house.

MTV is simply a dictation of what is "cool" and appeals to blondes and jocks.
MTV was cool when Beavis & Butthead was around until some little prick injured himself.

The brainwashing, twelve-year-old-and-younger station that hides behind a slick image. They think they're so cool that they decide what's cool.
MTV plays the same crap over and over.
