Today, MTV turns 30. I spent a lot of years of my life sitting in front of the TV absorbing the mind-numbing awesomeness of MTV in the 80s and 90s when they still showed videos and knew how to have fun. A very surreal moment to see this young hip cultural icon step into middle age.
I'm not sure what I'm more troubled by...the fact that MTV is spending the day playing a 16 and Pregnant marathon...or the fact that I have to watch VH1 classic to see the best of MTV. What's even worse is that in the hours of programming featuring MTV's best moments...they have yet to show one video.
Here are the 11 Best Music Videos of all Time:
1. Michael Jackson - Thiller
4. Outkast - Hey Ya!
5. Pearl Jam - Do The Evolution
6. U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name
7. Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
8. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
9. Weezer - Buddy Holly
