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:

    MTV 1981 by a landslide!! LOL

    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.
