I do not blame you for lacking the MTV Video Music Awards final evening. MTV hasn’t paid consideration to heavy metallic in fairly a very long time, and wasn’t about to begin this 12 months. Nonetheless, as any person who watched each VMAs of the 90s and early 00’s, I’ve no drawback DVR’ing the occasion and scanning by means of it and feeling previous about how I do not acknowledge quite a lot of the folks.
Beforehand, I began getting nostalgic for when MTV did care about metallic bands, like when Metallica and Weapons N Roses received Video Music Awards, when Marilyn Manson confirmed his ass on reside TV, when Korn received awards and when Mudvayne shocked everyone.

Whereas initially the award present was given the inexperienced gentle to occur at Barclay’s Middle, MTV determined to not do a reside occasion in an enclosed house, and as a substitute opted for this odd, pre-taped closely inexperienced screened award present. It made for some distinctive performances. However the place was the metallic?
Was any person sporting a metallic shirt? No.
Was any person giving a metallic band a shout out? No.
That is actually the closest factor to a metallic second throughout the entire present:
Sure, that is it. Girl Gaga (barely) giving the horns is as near a metallic second as we pleb metalheads get on the VMAs.
To not query Gaga’s metallic cred, as we know she’s a fan, however a take a look at a press shot from this second reveals she’s not even giving the horns appropriately. (Additionally LOL at this tweeter’s tackle her giving the horns)

Overlook about metallic, there wasn’t even any rock on the present. The closest factor to rock can be Machine Gun Kelly’s efficiency throughout the pre-show, the place he was joined by Travis Barker for a pop-punk music.
So, yeah, I do not know what I used to be anticipating. However I simply want when firms promote “a celebration of music,” that metallic be included within the dialog. Final 12 months wasn’t any higher.
Did you watch the Video Music Awards in any respect?
