i hope this goes down in history like the awards show that cut off sinatra.
It won't, but i wish it would.

Does anyone know what companies' ads were shown during that commercial break? I think our campaign will be more effective if we let the sponsors know how we feel about their ads being shown instead of PF, as well as letting MTV know.

I second Jilaad!

MTV does not care. They do not care about music. All they care about is maximising the advertising dollar from a focused segment.
MTV does not care.

Go out and buy some stuff you whiners.

2005-07-02 8:14:09 PM  
MTV made their money. A shiat they do not give. Asswads.
2005-07-02 8:29:24 PM  
Pink who?


Pink Farking Floyd. Go look 'em up.

2005-07-02 8:29:58 PM  
cybercyph: Pink who?

2005-07-02 8:50:22 PM  
Oh, and they interrupted The Who. I'm never watching MTV again.
2005-07-02 9:07:14 PM

2005-07-02 9:24:01 PM

cybercyph: Pink who?


Pink Floyd, dumbass. It's good f*cking music. Better than any shiat that has come out recently.

2005-07-02 11:23:17 PM  
Still better than anything lately. Well, in the past 5 years.
2005-07-02 11:44:54 PM  
Just did Anson -> Lubbock...Plugged in The Wall about Snyder...finished up as I was pulling into the Hub City...Windows down, volume up...

/deaf and happy thanks
2005-07-02 11:54:06 PM  
MTV is still around?
2005-07-02 11:55:51 PM  
Chazz McChazzter really did it this time
2005-07-02 11:55:54 PM  
Hey, guys, maybe the director was just out of time. Don't be such harsh pigs and throw the guy right to the dogs.
2005-07-02 11:56:50 PM  

you can easily make that the past 15 years.

oh, by the way: which one's pink?
2005-07-02 11:58:13 PM  
MTV still thinks MJ is the "king" of pop.

Eveyone working for MTV should be fired and replaced by people who will put some variety on that station.
2005-07-02 11:58:19 PM  
Thats pretty bad, green farking day got to butcher Queen uninterrupted, but Pink Floyd gets cut off. Thats why i watched it on VH1. Even if it was the same or whatever, i cant stand to put my tv on mtv.
You better be kidding.
2005-07-02 11:58:30 PM  
MTV sucks.
2005-07-03 12:00:36 AM  

In another thread here, I just posted:

Of course, I sure miss the MTV coverage of the original. Remember Paul McCartney playing IN THE IN THE FRICKING BACKGROUND while some doofus MTV VeeJay was explaining the technical aspects of their press-passes? And when they finally put the focus back on the singer, they IMMEDIATELY cut back to 10-minute head-shots of the MTV staff since we were MUCH MORE interested in Martha Quinn's reaction to McCartney than we were to McCartney himself.

Back then (beyond the evident years and/or memories of most kidlings here) they tried to blame it on camera direction done without rehersal, blah-blah ... general confusion ... blah ...

Give'em another twenty-some years and they may get it down, eh?
2005-07-03 12:00:39 AM  
Mtv is evil.
2005-07-03 12:00:56 AM  
MTV and VH1 should be bloody ashamed of themselves, I have been looking forward to seeing the reformation of Pink Floyd for weeks and I get 2 wanker VJ's talking over Comfortably Numb then they cut to commercials the bastards. I hate MTV/VH1 even more than I did before, they can play all the cRap they like because I won't tune in again. Coonts!
2005-07-03 12:02:42 AM  
oh Kado. What MTV does far exceeds sucking. I dont even think there is a word for it. Ill have to make one up.
MTV redriledgifies. Yeah, thats good.

Faarkieboy: Old n' busted

New hottness

That new hotness looks pretty busted to me.
2005-07-03 12:03:33 AM  
This is why i watched it live online. Uninterrupted coverage and no asshat commentators talking over performances.
2005-07-03 12:03:36 AM  
I thought MTV didn't play music anymore? Just (non)reality spin offs and farking commercials.
2005-07-03 12:03:37 AM  
Preach it. I was so farking pissed when they went to commercial.

I was like...this shiat better be taped and they're coming right back to it, but NO. What do we get Stevie farking Wonder.

Farking disgusting. Farking disgusting

If there's a Nobel Prize awarded for trolling, Faarkieboy is this year's winner.
2005-07-03 12:04:06 AM  
My question is... how is MTV still in buiseness? Who the fark is still watching that electronic filth to give them any sort of ratings? I say someone with more, uh.... energy... start a boycott of products advertised on that awful pile of shiat.

I'll sign it.

/pissed but lazy
2005-07-03 12:04:10 AM  
I'm still shocked with these whiny ass celebs that come out with these insane numbers without checking them. It makes them look even dumber.

Commercial cut... "every 3 seconds, a child in Africa dies". Are they aware that's 10.5 million a year? If there's that many dying, how are there any adults there? Seriously...
2005-07-03 12:04:20 AM  
MTV is the biggest pile of crap ever. Real world/road rules marathons, R&B 24/7. Absolute trash. The only good things on MTV EVER were Beavis and Butthead, Jackass, and Headbangers Ball.

/end rant

2005-07-03 12:05:10 AM  
i wanted to see this set (badly) but was way too busy at the time - anyone have a link?
2005-07-03 12:05:12 AM  
Personally speaking...MTV has gone to more commercialism than showing real rock videos. Where in the heck has the real music gone? It has gone down hill. MTV had no right to do that to Pink Floyd or any legendary band that has been around 20 plus years. I grew up listening to rock-n-roll and several other genres of music and MTV has gone too far this time.

I'm just wondering how long it will take before MTV executives realize that they made a major mistake with putting commericials in a reunion show. To me, they should run the show commericial free and terminate the executive producer and director of the show.
2005-07-03 12:05:31 AM  
VH1 at least is able to entertain me on occasion with i love the 80's and Most(and Least) Metal moments and the 100 greatest hard rock bands. But MTV is absolutely ABYSSMAL. People that watch MTV these days think Nirvana is classic rock and Good Charlotte is punk! GOD! It absolutley sickens me.
2005-07-03 12:06:16 AM  
'It' will only go away if you stop saying it's name and you completely ignore it.

You know what 'it' is.
2005-07-03 12:06:22 AM  
that was sad just sad...

so historic! and now let us cut to commerical..

/kills them all
2005-07-03 12:06:47 AM  

Now it's finally sinking in to all you blind consumerists idiots that companies care about one thing ONLY!!!


Ford being questioned about seatbelts:
Q: Are you arguing that seatbelts don't save lives?
A: No, I'm saying that they cost money to implement.
Q: But aren't you as a car company responsible to some extent to the consumer?
A: Ford is not a car company, it is A company, with the single goal of maximizing profit. If I could make more money making toothpaste, Ford Motors would be churning that out tomorrow.
2005-07-03 12:07:20 AM  
Why is anyone surprised about this? MTV stopped living up to its name a long time ago.
2005-07-03 12:07:50 AM  

My question is... how is MTV still in buiseness? Who the fark is still watching that electronic filth to give them any sort of ratings?

2005-07-03 12:07:51 AM  
It's just sad when you have an iconic moment like that, cut off by a station who, at one time, would have run the whole Live 8 without a commercial interruption.

Now... it's just a sick, self-ingesting waste.

/not surprised
2005-07-03 12:08:07 AM  

Both bands you listed have guitars, and so wouldn't have been played on MTV for at least 5 years.
2005-07-03 12:08:08 AM  
lol @ insane. they may have taken that as a racial slur. But your right.
2005-07-03 12:08:44 AM  
man I am probably older than most of you but you all sound like a bunch of freaking geezers... hey you kids get off my lawn!!!!

Who cares, pink floyd stopped being good when they released dark side and now are just a bunch of old stoners.
2005-07-03 12:09:11 AM  
MTV has always blown. I remember when they did "The Wall" live at the Berlin wall, did MTV cover it? Nope. Had to listen to it on the radio.
