What has happened to MTV? Does MTV play music anymore? Every time I have turned on Music Television in the last month or two, all I see are Sandblast, The Real World (Parts 1, 2 and 3), The Jon Stewart Show, MTV movie awards nominees special, Jim Carrey interviews, My So-Called Life, Beavis and Butt-head, The Maxs, and occasionally, Ren and Stimpy.
When I do see music, it's MTV Jams or The Grind, and neither of these shows feature artists that actually play instruments. If I want to watch half-naked people dance, I'll just watch a beer commercial. I don't need that on MTV.
So, to the people out there like me who don't like rap and dance music, I say forget about MTV
