I heard that the Video Music Awards sucked again....Maybe the network should do something to make it like it was back in the old days like play music videos for instance.......They should play videos 24/7 and not the same old sh@#! either...they should mix it up with some underground groups videos mixed in with commercialized artists video's ....anything would be better than what MTV has become.

Anyone else have any ideas or connections to push new ideas to MTV?

I don't listen to much rock/pop anymore. But MTV is useless.

Actually the MTV Jams channel (the one really good feature of Comcast Cable) plays videos all day and night. But it put on the horrible O-zone awards non-stop the past week. Justin Timberlake was sayin it all night to play more videos, if MTV dont listen to him, who will they listen to?

I completely agree. It's not even about music anymore.

I remember the good ol' days when MTV started and I was in high school...my buddies and I would stay up practically all night watching videos and all the cool graphics on MTV back then.

I think the last time I saw a real video on MTV was around 1990...it's too bad...

Here are some names for you: JJ Jackson, Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn, Nina Blackwood and Mark Goodman. I remember all those folks and being one of the first in my school to have MTV back then. Now...it's all about reality shows and none of them are any good.

Who remembers "Fear"? I actually like that show until I realized they had an age limit..what? An age limit on a show like that? WTH? I guess they thought after a certain age, you weren't gullable any more?

I think MTV "Jumped the Shark" after Beavis and Butthead. Used to watch alot of MTV back in the day (MTV Jams, Remote Control, Stevie Washington angry youth, etc...)

all good stuff back then...

I remember the VJ's...loved Martha Quinn and Mark Goodman back then...and yea, if you had cable (which was fairly new back then too) and had MTV, then you were very popular in high school and everyone wanted to come by your house and hang out while watching it!
