120 Minutes is a television show in the United States dedicated to the alternative music genre. Over 2 hours, watch music videos featuring leftfield artists from electronic to alternative rock to hip-hop.
MTV has never been big on telling the truth, especially when it comes to history. They have spent decades lying to the kids and now they are even lying about their own history. This new version of 120 minutes is their vision of what they wish it had been. The original wasn't all REM, The Cure and Nine Inch Nails. In fact NIN(and most bands on this new show) were almost never on the original show. The average episode would have contained That Petrol Emotion. Ned's Atomic Dustbin and even Living Colour and The Cult. MTV created a culture of people who love whatever terrible music they claim is popular and then deny ever liking it when it's not cool anymore. They created a culture of lying idiots. Congrats, scumbags.
