MTV Promises To Actually Air Music Videos For 1 Day

In the ’90s MTV used to actually play music instead of airing horribly crass reality shows about young people boning each other. MTV made or break musicians that’s why when MTV refused to play hip hop it was a huge deal and when they started YO! MTV Raps it was a MAJOR deal.

According to NPR, “MTV, VH1, and CMT sent out a press release this morning announcing that on July 4th, which they’re calling ‘Music Independence Day’, they will ‘dedicate their channels exclusively to music.'” For once. I wonder what videos they will choose to air.

They say all day long but according to NPR it’s only 12 hours. I wonder if they are testing the waters to see who will tune in? I personally love music videos because they reveal how most artists see themselves and can tell some pretty cool stories.
