Anything that MTV has broadcast since they stopped showing 24-hr music videos.

In college, we could turn on MTV and just veg out watching videos. Then they stopped showing them, and started VH1 substitute. Then VH1 stopped showing them. Every time a channel starts up just to show videos, some executive gets the bright idea to make some original programming and there goes another music channel down the tubes.

I want my MTV! The way it used to be!

RAmen to that, UD. With the early MTV there was a wide variety of music and because the video part was exploding the creativity ran the gamut and included live concert footage. There also seemed to be less interference from corporate (thanks Bob Pittman)
