 MTV's changed a lot and not for the better...

 

 

Daria: It's hard to imagine, but MTV used to relate more to outcasts than potential prom kings and queens — and there was no one more acerbic than Daria Morgendorffer.

Why She Wouldn't Be Allowed on MTV Now: Not willing to make out with other girls.

......

Tabitha Soren: It may be hard to believe, but there was a point when the MTV News reporter pictured above was derided as nothing more than a shameless attempt to sex up the news. Nowadays, even your local news anchor resembles Jenna Jameson.

Why She Wouldn't Be Allowed on MTV Now: Only male news personalities are allowed to grow old gracefully on MTV. And by "gracefully," we mean that despite pushing fifty, they are expected to dye their hair and dress like members of Good Charlotte.

 

....

 

Kurt Cobain: The frontman of Nirvana ushered in an age devoid of pop singers and boybands, where nerdy, unconventional acts like Radiohead and Bjork were given common rotation for their groundbreaking videos.

Why He Wouldn't Be Allowed on MTV Now: It's hard to break out as a music video star when you're relegated to 30-second clips playing alongside the end credits for Run's House.

If you wake up really early on Sunday mornings you can instead opt for VH1's countdown of the Top 20 videos which feature such cutting edge acts as Nickelback and Daughtry, though.

I saw the Watch the Throne tour, and it was like seeing the moon landing.

I always liked Daria and thought it was cool she got spun off from Beavis and Butthead.

"Diarrhea cha cha cha"

That was wrong of them, but hilarious.

I'd rather watch the Bjork stalker videos than MTV Canada.
