MTV , MTV2, MTVJ, and MT-whatever in the fuck-they can all suck it

I was sooooooooo happy to get mtv2, but now it seems the rap shit(e) is trying to take over. Even now on this "Control Freak", half the videos are rap, R&B, hip hop, or some other form of shit(e) that was supposed to be on a decline. I have been listening to this crap for the last hour and it's all been the same computer-for-a-guitair nonsense sampled to death no-talent lyrical jumble.

And there will be an entire show for rap only almost daily, but when do they have rock or alt-rock days or shows????

Enough already, it's bad enough you can't ever catch a good rock video on the original mtv, but mtv2 is converting as I speak. And the channel right after mtv2 is called mtvj, for mtv jams!!!!!!!!!!

MY GOD!
Would it be too much to have a fucking mtvr (rock), or mtva (alternative)? OR how about an mtv that didn't completely blow donkey goats!?!?

Sorry for my rant

But seriously, what else is there? The VH1 top ten? I mean we have no other outlet here. My city is uniquely oppressed for it's "size", as our radio stations all suck suck suck suck. Ask Diemen, Heartland Girl, Dannospano, and anyone who has been here.

I was looking to this mteevee2 crap to help out in new rock, since there is no other way around here to get exposure to that.

I feel your pain...my MTV-X, which actually played decent rock/alternative music, just converted to MTV-J. No one asked me if I wanted MTV-J, it just changed. That really blows.

They all stink.

At least in Canada, we have MuchMusic (that's like MTV but actually plays videos, albeit lots of crap), MuchMoreMusic (that's like VH1, but plays more videos, not that many specials), MuchMoreLoud (hard rock), MuchMoreVibe (rap and r&b), and EdgeTV (alt-rock, pretty good). Plus the crappola duo of MTV1 and MTV2.

I feel blessed to not be exposed to the MTV shit. Much Music is infinitely better and Much More Music is a little better still because it pretty much just plays music and a lot of oldies at that.

MM has better and funnier VJ's and has none of those shit gameshows and other completely music un-related BS

When I get mad at the TV I just turn it off and start reading one of the million books by my bed or come here and get in the chat. Consequently, I have not watch TV for the last 2 years. hahaha.

I noticed that last night too. I'm hoping it's just a special thing this week. "Control Freak" is always annoying because the one good video never wins and a lot of times they'll put two really good videos videos against each other so the bad video wins. I can't stand the VJ girl who co-hosts that hip-hop, rap top videos show. She's so obnoxious, always screaming....grrr....They do have a rock show, but it's one of those top videos things too, so it's all worn-out stuff that you're seeing for the 10,000,000th time. The only really good thing about MTV2 is "120 Minutes," but a lot of times they just play the same videos week after week, or they premier a great video and never show it again. Not that I'm bitter....

i dunno, i find that on control freak they tend to have themes (but not announce what they are ahead of time) - like sometimes it'll be all rap but others its alt/rock. it's still better than regular ol' MTV. i am so sick of road rules vs. real world. who gives a crap about these people??? and why is it on MTV.
*feeling a rant coming on.
