White Dopes on Punk 


This is the title of a blog post that reads, in part, as follows:


MTV is the Devil. Sure, when it started out it was pretty cool. You could actually see your fave bands act out songs! And for about 10 years, it was fairly cutting edge....The only music (the "M" in "MTV") is "TRL," the teenybopper show hosted by Carson Daly....

MTV was responsible for ruining two of the best groups of the '70s: The Tubes and The J. Geils Band. Theatrical ensemble The Tubes made such timeless songs as "White Punks On Dope," "What Do You Want From Life?," and the S&M anthem "Don't Touch Me There." They found fame on MTV with such watered down fare as "Talk To You Later" and "She's a Beauty." They faded into obscurity, with their video work as their legacy.

The J. Geils Band was one of the many blues bands that formed in the wake of the British Invasion. They were also one of the best, doing blazing covers of "First I Look at the Purse," and "Lookin' For A Love." Lead singer Peter Wolf even married Faye Dunaway. What did MTV air? "Love Stinks," "Freeze-Frame," and the truly awful "Centerfold."
