The greatest channel to ever grace basic cable/satallite programming ever. This term is mistakenly associated with brainwashing.

Fiddy cent for life!
MTV tells me how to live and without MTV my life is next to worthless. Thank God for MTV, how else would I have become popular by wearing pink shirts and acting like a complete faggot.

Get a MTV mug for your friend Nathalie.
Some boring ass channel that overplays shows like Teen Mom, Jersey Shore, yada yada yada that has a bunch of bitchy and whiny teenagers on there. It used to be good when they shown music videos and it wasn't bad when they shown shows such as High School Stories and Made, etc. If you want the true MTV, go watch Vevo on youtube.

1. An acronym used by many cynics as a way to express their hatred toward the corporate culture that they will never have the will power to escape. MTV is evidently not a major source of musical deterioration, as other sources (i.e. the internet, radio) has enlightened these cynics on what "true" music is, which fluxuates, as "true" music to one may be garbage to others, a rule that some have yet to realize is true. If one turns on MTV today, the music videos are only one minute long; the majority of MTV has turned into reality and dating television programs that are laced with small segments of music as use of an accent that you will find anywhere on any network. MTV is not facist; they do not control anyone, especially anyone that is placing a meaning on this website. If somebody enjoys the programs on MTV, it does not make them shallow, and it certainly does not make them a "societal tool used for profit".

2. MTV is Music Television. Started in the eighties, its programs have gradually grown farther from its original idea, thus causing much animosity from viewers who are looking for actual Music on their Televisions.
Girl: "Tee-hee! I heart MTV!"

Man #1: "Ugh. You're just another cookie cutter fecal excretion of what the major industries call the american dream..."

Man #2: "Who isn't nowadays, doughboy."
