Here is my little e mail to MTV:
I'm trying to figure out what kind of show "120 Minutes" is exactly. It sure as hell isn't the one I watched when I was in High School. Now it's basically the same stuff you play the rest of the day, except you take out all the black artists.
Which is a damn shame, not to mention racist, because some of the most "alternative" and creative songs on MTV aren't made by Matchbox 20, Everclear or Everlast, they're made by Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill and Jay-z.
Case in point. I saw a video for the House Of Pain wannabe's "Lords Of Brooklyn" on 120 Minutes. Isn't that rap? Oh, it's white rappers, nevermind. Will you be playing Eminem on 120 next week?
This was the same gripe I had with your "Alternative Nation" program. They would play the same heavy rotation pop rock stuff they played during the day. Except without the soul and rap singers. I thought more honest name for the show should be "Aryan Nation" instead of "Alternative Nation". Fortunately for you Smashing Pumpkins has A Japanese American in the band, otherwise there would be hardly and minorities in your 120 Minutes segments.
PS Play some Morrissey videos.
