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.

  1. 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!

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

  3. “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.

I respond to comments, so leave me a note....
