MTV 120 Minutes Music Video Archive

1980s and 1990s music fans will remember MTV’s 120 Minutes as the go-to show for the latest in alternative music.

More than 20 years ago, Radiohead appeared on an unlikely stage – MTV’s Beach House – turning in performances of their classics Creep and Anyone Can Play Guitar, and transfixing what would have normally been a rowdy group of college kids with their hard-edged alt-rock.

Starting 8/1/16, VH1 Classic will become MTV Classic, a channel dedicated to the company’s original series and music programming with a focus on the 1990s to the early 2000s, such as Beavis and Butthead, Pimp My Ride and MTV Unplugged. We hope they put it online too.
