MTV at 30

Recommended Posts

I cant believe its been 30 years. I watched it religiously growing up and up until 1995 the it became less music and more dumb tv shows. Some of us older one who were around when it started can remember so many groups that started back in the MTV heyday. I mean who doesn't remember at least hanging with your friends on a weekend and watching MTV. I loved Headbangers Ball and YO MTV Raps. I remember being at my wifes house (when she was my girlfriend) watching videos with her and just hanging out. 30 years is a long time...just wish they had the same format from back then.

 

If you listen to XM Siruis 80's station all the original MTV VJ's are on there. So its cool to hear them and that 80's music and think back to those day. Getting older sucks....

Yea I remember too. Really wanted to hook up my stereo onto my tv so I could watch MTV in stereo LOL. I loved Headbanger's Ball & the news section. It really grew my musical taste. Now its only reality shows and crappy music. I remember staying up on Friday night for a bit to watch a live telecast of a concert on MTV too.

Out here in the dark beyond my music is still back in the 70's and 80's... As to MTV being 30 yeah we get old and then the shows etc get old... going back to listen to Led Zep with a touch of AC-DC to mellow out my evening... :grandpa::tease::rockon:

Hey! Remember when MTV showed music videos???

 

I stopped watching when the Ray Cokes programme stopped. he cracked me up big time!

After that it went downwards imho; less videos, more 'real life soaps' and nothing related

to music. Wish there was an alternative for us here in NL, playing the old metal, rock

and alternative music videos.

Last week i was talking to somebody here and trying to show her "Money For Nothing" the video that boosted me to play guitar, i never, ever, have found a better video (Sabrina and boys`s song doesn`t count...) than that one, she saw me like a real dinosaur... LOL!

I didn't watch it too much in the 80s, I waited until HS and college in the 90s (when I got cable in my room instead of having to watch it in the kitchen...before that I mostly watched the network TV I could get over the air in my room).

 

Does anyone remember the Meatloaf invasion? Not an hour would go by without "Anything for Love" playing on it, VH1, or both. I once literally turned from MTV, which was 1/2 way thru it, to VH1 to see it had just started!! NOOO!!!!!!

 

However, Beavis and Butthead is coming back! The kids of today aren't any smarter than they were 15 years ago, and I've missed Judge's great satire.
