Remember when MTv was awesome?

This is the way, at 51 yo, I remember things:

The early 70's was great. Hendrix, Joplin, Cal Jam, etc. Then came Disco... finger.gif Towards the late 70's or early 80's FM hit my area. We went from Donna Summers/ the BeeGees/sports radio/talk radio AM to





1980 was a revolution for me!

(You never heard bands like Sabbath before then.)

In 1984 there was another revolution and it started with this:



I can't help but notice the disinterested chicks in the front row that have absolutely no clue that they are in the video that would launch the mega power that would be MTv.

MTv would change everything.

The 80's were a blast!

Then...

There was the birth of MTv Unplugged...

Some of the greatest music of modern man would be aired of this new medium of cable tv.







Post your favorites.

There's still good music. You just never hear it because the record labels have figured out a formula for shït that keeps the teenie boppers buying their vomit.

73 baby.. So for me guns and roses, appetite for destruction was a big shift for me musically.. I love disco, pop crap, r and b, rock, just about anything except metal and classical.. They both just go far beyond what I can stand.. I'm not opposed to hard rock though, or kooky classical like Antony and the johnsons.,

Australia is about rock music really.. always has been.. R and b and rap never took off here, we don't have a black population.. Now it's shifted to Dance music, which is the norm.. Everywhere you go is very cool dance music.. British people like it, Americans don't..

I remembered I forgot to post the next big song/band to make a big change in radio and music so I came to do it and you already mentioned them.



When they hit the scene you could finally see the interest in hard rock and heavy metal. Radio stations dedicated to this genre finally started popping up and it was amazing!

I could still sing that whole album word for word.. Flawless..

Then they became popular, and I didn't like them after that album..

The white stripes, elephant, was a big moment too.. One of the best albums of all time..



And then the strokes, is this it? Top 5 album of all time..



I get lost in la la land, like Bon iver, bonnie prince billy, and any band from Iceland (they produce true art only).. I don't mind some popular people, like the weeknd.. He is a true talent.. Top of the charts, but for a reason..

orgazmo3.gif I still can't post YouTubes..

You always have to remove the s from https and if you are posting from a mobile device you have to replace the m with www.
