Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

MTV used to be great, but I think MTV Jumped The Shark quite a while ago.
When I find myself flipping the channels
Carson Daly and the tweens
I must change the station, MTV
And in the hours of watching
There is nothing worthy so it seems
Ev'ry show is stupid, MTV

MTV
MTV
MTV
MTV
Viacommunism*
MTV

And when the show's retarded like the
Millionaire celebrities
If we want some gossip, we'll watch E!*
And ev'ry thing they've started
Has been run a-ground like the Valdez
Programming disaster, MTV

MTV
MTV
MTV
MTV
No,Never playing music
MTV

MTV
MTV
MTV
MTV
Mucus TeleVision
MTV

(solo)

MTV
MTV
MTV, oh
MTV
Re-run after re-run
MTV

And then their shows are boring
So much that they will put you to sleep
Can't afford a sleep aid?, MTV
I think I still have some doubters
Watch a while and you'll agree
Deserved criticism, MTV

MTV
MTV
MTV
Oh MTV
Oh airing all this drivel
MTV

MTV
MTV
MTV
It's eMpTV
Music's been abandoned
Just TV
copyright 2005+ Red Ant * Viacom owns MTV, E! is the Entertainment channel, which is where about 90% of MTV's shows belong. And yes, I do occasionally watch Mutilated TV once in a while, just to see how far downhill they have gone.

Thanks PMS. I might make a reprise of this parody, so much MTV bashing was left out of this.

555, I agree with you, MTV has just gotten alot worse, I think MTV2 better watch it, as it looks like it is slowly becoming like MTV(I don't have cable right now, used to when living with family. MTV2 is on a public access channel where I live, so I can watch when I'm in the mood).
Red Ant - September 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Step-chan, MTV2 is just as bad, I would get VH1 classics or FUSE if they were available here on cable.
Stu Pid Idiot - October 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Only a nerd hates MTV. P.S. They play Music around VMA time,or you could record when they do. P.P.S.MTV2 SHOWS Mostly Music,with occasional reruns of CB or B&B late at night,or new shows. P.P.P.S.MTV is like Bush,not as bad as everyone says it is,but still kinda lame. P.P.P.P.S.HOW COULD YOU HATE LET IT BE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

It's ironic that MTV's biggest annual event is the Video Music Awards - how the hell is anyone supposed to know which music videos are worthy of awards, when MTV itself doesn't even play them? Where are these alleged videos? I hear reports of artists shelling out major dinero for videos, but I have no idea where to even look for the damn things. Cinemax? VH1-South America? ESPN-8 ("The Ocho")?

Nicely skewered, Red. I particularly like "Viacommunism" and "eMpTV," and as someone who's lived in Valdez, I'm pleased by that name-drop (even though you're talking about the Exxon tanker).

SOTM...I am with you on this one, Red Ant! I have several goals in live, including getting people to realize that there is NOTHING real about "The Real World," and convincing young girls nationwide that screaming like a banshee into the TRL street mike will not make anyone ANY more cool...it will only make me want to punch them. ; )

You are correct, sir, YES. Way back when they had 'Beavis and Butthead', clay-mation intros and played music things were still pretty good. Too bad about everything since. Especially liked "Can't afford a sleep aid?, MTV".

eMpTV says it all. Great subs and clever word play. I guess their programming change up over the years has been a matter of survival. It is so sad that in order to stay afloat an entertainment business has to continuosly up the anty with more and more sticker shock or should I say schlock. Great bash on worthless "entertainment".

Great satire on the current standings of MTV. If you want music nowadays you'll have to watch VH1 if you want really bad music nowadays you'll have to watch BET but I would much rather watch MTV over BET any day. I don't have a problem with rap (I've done a few Eminem parodies in my day, but the "music" they play on that channel is horrendous!) I really liked the line "Mucus TeleVision" lol

I really liked "Viacommunism", this one didn't give you much room to elaborate against MTV, but it was funny, and well written. . .a couple spots I had trouble pacing, but I'm sure you could make it work. MTV forgot the M a long time ago. . .

(ABC5) I don't know if Aussie gets MTV, but if we do I haven't seen it. I'm pretty sure I saw MTV on the TV Tropes page for 'Network Decay', so you must know what you're on about. I'm also not really familiar with the OS. So...yeah.
