Watching history via a timeline, when MTV played and promoted mostly 80's Pop and New Wave, everyone walked around with similar attitudes and clothing/hair styles. When MTV decided to play mostly Heavy Metal, most of the kids grew their hair long, dressed like Skid Row and Mötley Crüe. When MTV decided to promote depression metal (aka alternative/grunge) like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, everyone took on the same mentality and attire. Currently, it appears the MTV has been bought out by the biggest racist of all, Spike Lee, because MTV now has become a 99.9% black channel, and thusly millions of brainwashed white girls are in relationships (aka "fucking" and being dropped like a nigga dropping a stolen car stereo while being chased by the po po) and having millions of unwanted mixed race babies.
In summation: Whatever MTV chooses to promote, America becomes, like a bunch of mindless zombies.
"Errrmahhgerddd Britneeeee, have you heard that new song on MTVVV? i LOVE the autotune and repetitive mind numbing beat loops, and shitty singing by Rhianna in it! Jay Z is sooo fucking HOT my panties get sooo wet!"
p.s. to the dumbass who mentioned degrassi, thats a whole nother network idiot. And mtv should bring back Undressed! That show kicked ass.
Me:if u want music go buy a cd, or maybe even an ipod, who the hell cares about Van Halen and GNR,shows gotta end sometime, thats just how tv works. go buy it on dvd if ur that bummed. do u even know what an ipod and dvd is? Welcome to 2006 grandpa.
Idiot 2: all the kids at my school are such losers! They all watch mtv and dont listen to bands like Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd that came out over 30 yrs ago! What sheep.
Me: maybe the reason your an outcast is because your such a know-it-all little prick. And I know you got that Ramones t-shirt from Hot Topic, poser.
Idiot 3: mtv is a liberal wasteland corrupting our youth with their immoral values,cursing, sex, and scandalous fashion trends.
Me: dude...u are so repressed. Get fucked. And Fast.
Idiot 4: mtv is gay, emo queers, they show fags kissing, no headbanger music, fag, queer, gay, fag, queer, gay....
Me: u are a dumbass. I would never date a pig like u. *walks away in disgust*
as for all the reality shows, have you ever watched viva la bam or punkd or jackass?? obviously not fuckhole!
Me- Dumbass, you just are bitter because a)your shitty band sucks so hard recording execs are afraid to touch it and b)the gorgeous girls on it remind you how sad your fat pimply pale "girl"friend is and coz 50 cent reminds u that u are asexually shaped? And if you don't like pop or blink182-i don't either-change the chanel or turn off the tv. geez, what a fuckwad.
