Bear in mind the primary time you noticed Michael Jackson dance with zombies in “Thriller”? Diamond Dave karate kick with Van Halen in “Bounce”? Tawny Kitaen turning cartwheels on a Jaguar to Whitesnake’s “Right here I Go Once more”? The Beastie Boys spray beer in “(You Gotta) Combat for Your Proper (To Get together)”? Axl Rose step off the bus in “Welcome to the Jungle”?Bear in mind when all you wished was your MTV? It was a reasonably radical thought – a channel for youngsters, exhibiting nothing however music movies. It was such a radical thought that just about nobody thought it might really succeed, a lot much less change into a pressure within the worlds of music, tv, movie, style, sports activities, and even politics. But it surely did work. MTV turned greater than anybody had ever imagined. I Need My MTV tells the story of the primary decade of MTV, the golden period when MTV’s programming was all movies, on a regular basis, and youngsters watched religiously to see their favourite bands, study new music, and have one thing to speak about at events. From its begin in 1981 with a small cache of movies by largely unknown British new wave acts to the launch of the reality-television craze with The Actual World in 1992, MTV grew right into a tastemaker, a profession maker, and a mammoth enterprise. That includes interviews with practically 400 artists, administrators, VJs, and tv and music executives, I Need My MTV is a testomony to the channel that modified standard tradition without end.
