    Tell me why all the musical geniuses like SRV, Jaco, Buddy Holly, Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin etc. etc. seem to die young, while talentless hacks like the Backdoor Boys seem to glide along without hazzard?

    Pop music blows.

    I hear ya, I remember when MTV actually played videos all the time (hey, remember headbanger's ball?), way back when hbo wasn't even 24 hours.

    The only thing music tv channels are good for now is a great game show on VH1 called 'Cover Wars', hosted by Paul Shaffer, where 3 bands compete for gear by playing covers, ordered on the spot by judges, and often in very bizarre styles. It's a gas.

    Get digital cable and watch MTV-X. All rock videos, no commercials (like MTV-2 has). Just nonstop videos. Enough said.

    Dude, I was thinking about making a tread on this too. I love the rock show. It's the only time that I watch music channels anymore. Too bad it's only one hour and on at midnight. They should devote at least one hour of the day to the show for a year. Also MTV needs to bring back the headbangers ball. I love it when the rock show plays Pantera. They have cool videos of them just doing what they do best. ROCKING and Playing LOUD music.

    There's an MTV2?

    Did they steal the idea from the BBC?

    well, not exactly -- didn't you hear, one of the backstreet boys is entering rehab for alcohol abuse? (maybe he's bunking with Hetfield)

    Yeah I heard about that. I bet their publicist read a poll that said that the wingnuts from NSYNC were rated as hipper than the Backdoor Boys, so they decided to put one of them in rehab to give them that dangerous edge they were losing.

    The good thing is that eventually their fanbase will grow up and realize they suck. And by then they will be old news for younger kids.

    The bad thing is there is always another boy band around the corner. Damn them.

    My friend has digital cable, and I go over there all the time to watch VH1 Classic Rock. This channel has all the best videos from Rush to Jimi to the Doobie Brothers. It kicks serious ass.
