Remember when MTV used to be cool and you could actually find good bands on the station? When the term alternative was just another term to market a band? I dont cause i was only 7 in 1992 but its still fun to look back and see some of my fav bands get airplay.

Enjoy the special (Thurston is a talking head throughout) and reminisce about favorite alternative mtv moments

I went to University of Houston in 1991, and stopped watching able television, no access.

Same here! Actually I found out about most of my favorite "alternative" bands on 120 minutes. I watched circa 88-92. You had to wade through a lot of shit, though, a lot of wanker bands, but it was worth it. You could count on about 15-20 minutes of the show to be really revelatory, in terms of showing you bands you might not hear about otherwise.

no other show played replacements, skinny puppy, sonic youth, Pixies, Siouxsie, etc.

to call it over-rated is ridiculous.

passinate about MTV? Nope, just passionate about a 2 hour show, on at 11:00PM on sunday nights, extending to 1:00 AM Monday morning, a shit time slot, and I would tape it (ahhh, video tape) and watch it all week long until the next one ame on, and OH THOSE summer vacations, when I could stay up and watch it personally, all alone, my mom/dad, and brother having long since gone to bed, stayi ng up late recording individual videos on VHS and then showing them to my friends when they would come over, seeing TEENAGE RIOT, Shadow of a DOUBT, Kool Thing, so many fucking great videos, seen NOWHERE else on MTV/night flight/friday night videos, etc.

you had to be there.

Of course, 120 minutes is overrated, but to me it represented a time when you could actually watch the channel and see quality television. Besides actually showing music videos (which, compared to today's videos, were actually pretty awesome; I'd rather watch Alanis Morrissette or Superdrag or whatever other bullshit than anything they play today... if they play anything today...), they had great shows like the State, Buzzkill, The Head, The Maxx, Beavis N Butthead, etc...
