The Definitive Answer to "Why Doesn't MTV Play Music Videos Anymore?"
- Posted by RobInjection on November 12, 2012
Growing up, MTV was the place to keep current about all the latest bands in any genre of music, not just pop. There were shows covering hip-hop and heavy metal, and overall, you could be seen as a music connoisseur, rocking NWA one hour and then Guns N Roses the next. It was a great era, but then, we got older and MTV moved on. Many went to ask "why doesn't MTV play music videos anymore?" One courageous "network executive" decided to shun the inquisitive and give his definitive answer so everybody can just shut up already and live their lives. Check this out:
So many things are eerily accurate in this video. The fact that the complaint as to why MTV doesn't play videos anymore is old enough to drive a car, is scary… and true. MTV hasn't played music videos for about 15 years now, and the people still complaining aren't even in their target demographic.
Plus, not to toot our own horn, but the internet is where you can get what you need in terms of music videos. I mean, Youtube has everything and then sites like ours try to wad through the insanity and bring you the niche that we care about, in our case, heavy metal. So don't be too upset that MTV doesn't play music videos, because we sure do.
