I was in high school from 1993-1997 and spent nearly every afternoon after school watching MTV. MTV still ruled back then. They just played videos including alternative Buzzclips, and occasionally shows like Singled Out, Daria, and Beavis and Butthead. TRL and boy bands didn't even exist yet and alternative music was still cool.
Remember '120 Minutes'? I used to get all my music recommendations from this show: Bjork, Ben Folds Five, Garbage, Radiohead, and Portishead. Remember how hard it was to hear music before the internet? SO hard!
The other day my friends and I were talking about Sifl and Olly. Do you remember? I still think of my little sister when I watch this. I'll still get songs of theirs stuck in my head on occasion.
