Debate This…MTV 1981 vs MTV 2011

Debate This is all about voicing your opinion on really important things, such as Pepsi vs. Coke, Nike vs. Converse, and Twinkies vs. Ho-Hos. **smile** Okay, so maybe they’re not super important, but they’re at least fun things to jaw about. . . .

Be sure to cast your vote on the poll below. I’ll share the results later. . . .

MTV 1981 vs MTV 2011

~~~~

Remember these guys?

Can you believe it’s been THIRTY years since MTV came onto the music scene? Anyone know the FIRST video they played?

Okay, but this isn’t a trivia post… *grin*

This past weekend they were celebrating thirty years of the station and I suddenly remembered a time when MTV actually played music…remember that?

So, with that statement, alone, you probably know where I stand on the vote, but I want to hear what you have to say.

    Okay, who voted and didn’t comment.
    Anyway, I’m more of a CMTPure music kinda person than MTV now or then.

  2. Kendall Grey says:

    “Video Killed the Radio Star” was the first video MTV played. I *LOVED* MTV back in the day. I have no idea what happened to it, but when you stop playing music videos, it kinda deflates the whole idea of a video channel. Sigh.

  3. Lydia K says:

    There is no debate because I don’t watch MTV 2011…it gives me a headache. Oh crap, I sound like an old fogie, don’t I?
    *checks for wrinkles*

      Did you find one? If you did, then I sure have them, too. I can’t stand MTV…back when they played music I thought it was pretty good, but not GREAT!

    No contest….MTV 1981! Do they even show videos anymore? I think it’s trash now, but that’s just my opinion. 🙂

  5. Ciara Knight says:

  6. Lynn Rush says:

    1981! HEADBANGER’S BALL!!!

  8. katyupperman says:

    I was a mere infant when MTV launched, I’m a reality TV junkie AND I listen to country music pretty exclusively, so I voted for now. Looks like I’m in the minority though.

    This is such a fun post… great idea!

  9. MTV needs to change their name- they no longer play music that I’m aware of. It’s turned into reality tv and I hate it.
