Have you forgotten that the so-called "golden age" of MTV was also the age of hair metal, which was an equally-shallow style of music with equally-stupid music videos?

Do White Hip Hop fans like to be made feel guilty about things their ancestors may have done through terrible racist demogauge rappers? Why doesn't someone tell me because I can't figure it out.
I think this post from "Stuff White People Like" pretty much answers your question: #116 Black Music that Black People Don’t Listen to Anymore « Stuff White People Like

Bad cloths and haircuts don't make make tunes. These tunes are still very popular today. Will these new Rap and Hip-Hops still be in 20 or 30?

I doubt it.

Like Jay-Z and Beyonce's "Me And My Girlfriend" song back in 2002, almost everyone had forgotten about that.

That's the best example I can give.

BTW, the last I read Chuck still performs live at least once a month. Once a month for a 84 year old. His music stands the test of time as well as one of his biggest influences. Hell, even they have been at it for almost four decades and still as popular as ever. We all love ya Chuck and OZgals boys too!!! LOL

Why not make a video that has substance and story rather than the same thing over and over especially when that song has storytelling.

And speaking of song that has storytelling, back in 2000 I heard this song called "Stranger In My House" by Tamia, which was(is) a good song and I mean very good song which made me by Tamia's album "A Nu Day".

Then when I saw the Music Video for the songs Stranger In My House all the video showed was Tamia showing off her body. I'm like come on Tamia make the video that is part of the song.
The people who write the checks control the message. That includes the record and the music channels executives and programmers.
