Sometimes satire is better at presenting the truth.
As a lifelong fan of music, i’ve often wondered what happened to the channel that so deeply branded my childhood and coming of age.
MTV was incredible to anyone who grew up in the 90’s. I didn’t even have cable for the first half of the decade but I was very familiar with the channel. Many nights were spent at friends house with it on in the background. Not only were music videos huge, but so was animation and specialty shows such as headbangers ball and loveline, just to briefly name a few.
In more recent time, I would casually flip through channels and notice plenty of shows that were completely irrelevant to me, but more importantly, where were the music videos? Was it some conspiracy, was the current generation just completely vapid and shallow, was I completely old and completely irrelevant now?
While seeing if could somehow find out information on what happened, I came across this gem. I believe it explains everything perfectly. Enjoy!
