...Turning on the Tv wishing to see some big boobed lady doing her thing, and actually seeing two (or four), being absolutely not drunk.

But hey Offspring are sexy too.

one day i was zapping and then i said to my sister, "look, the offspring is gonna be next on MTV" and she looked at me like "yeah..sure..." and then i waited for the new clip and there it was..HAMMERHEAD!

i also tried to do this more often with no positive result. seems i can't push my sixth sense

It's very upsetting what MTV has become. I'm pretty sure that if MTV were today what it used to be, internet wouldn't be our major resource for videos and stuff. After all, the quality is much better than the internet.

Anyways, it used to be nice to watch MT and see not only the offspring, but also other bands. I have no idea what MTV is today, it's been 3 years now that since the last time I watched music television. Does it still show video clips or only crappy tv shows?

=D

This is a very interesting thought. And absolutely right, in my opinion. I still haven't gotten into the whole music videos on YouTube thing. I would prefer to see them on MTV, but I no longer have that option...


Does it still show video clips or only crappy tv shows?

Crappy TV shows, yes. Video clips, not so much, unless you wake up early in the morning. They have a nice long block of videos in the morning.

you being one of the few people up early enough to watch them. haha.

MTV blows anymore. so does vH1 and Fuse. They all seem to have lost their way...

mtv has sucked since it started.. before it stopped playing music clips, it would play shit music clips. you were happy to see one or two good clips per hour.. unless you watched it at 2am or so when it seemed to have a better ratio.

it cant compete with youtube, etc.. for just watching music videos so is making programs. i think the programs (generally) take a tiny ounce of mental brainpower to watch and are good to fall asleep to.

i cant really fault mtv more than any other channel. 99% of what comes on the television is nonsense tripe.

What the hell..

Well, MTV Brasil used to have clips for every taste. There was a program only for heavy metal, one only for hip hop etc.. There were only one or two which would mix styles because it was a Top 10 or something of the day

Are you sure we are talking about the same MTV????

Oh, when I said the TV shows were crappy, I didn't mean to imply that I didn't watch them.:p Next, Date My Mom, and Parental Control to name a few. And Made is the best thing they've had in years.

Oh, and I love hearing Offspring on the radio because it means that someone requested it, and that many other people are listening to something that I hold so dear.

I don't watch MTV much. But, at least in brazil, I have no clue of why it's called music television.
I just turned on the TV and they are showing a talk show about sex, believe it or not, when I turned on the TV, the first thing I heard was "I didn't want fame, I wanted fame", it seems like the one who said this is a crazy dude who created a sort of a crazy blog about sex and somehow he got money with that.
How the hell can this be related to music?

The guy said MTV sucks since it started. As far as I know it's called MUSIC television because it used to be all about MUSIC.

MTV Brasil used to be awesome, music 24/7. I'm pretty sure MTV all around the world would be about music too in its early years.

i can confirm this for california:) i used to watch 120 minutes all the time

but really they should change the name they have 0 music shows im sure the people who own mtv would rather air infomercials then music videos early in the morning

I simply don't understand how this can happen. Because of all the Green Day haters here, I must state that I like them, but The Offspring has to be on this list. Period. Being as objective as I can possibly be, Come Out and Play is number 2 and Basket Case number 1. There were just no bigger songs that year. Then again, if these lists were voted on by fans, I've just wasted my time typing this.

WHAT!? Seriously, they should have been in the list at least in '94 and '98. They were BIG then, probably one of the biggest at that actually time.

Heh right, but the song was released in '91, so it doesn't count as a '94 song. I doubt it was on that list anyway.

that was what i thought...maybe someone at mtv 2 really hates the offspring...it's a possibility!

Heh, it was probably just like my stupid face, when I watched 5 days of "100 Best Songs of the '90s" on vh1, only for there to be no Offspring. But I have to keep reminding myself that, for some reason, the general public doesn't acknowledge or remember them as much as other bands.
