MTV has missed the boat for so many years they're not only water-logged but they got barnacles growing on their dicks and tits. It would be ok if all they played was nothing but videos and concerts. Hello! I think that was their original outset was when they started. So who soaked up the deck but those barnacle corporate mongers!
As far as an award show goes they get more respect through the Revolver/Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards. Though its broadcast on Vh1 here in the States its the best thing for metal. The only way for our favourite music to get the public recognition they deserve is to do it ourselves. Fuck the Grammy's.
