Maybe they should still have Riki Rachtman hosting it! It should be longer, and reminiscent of the old version, it's way too serious now, there's no laughs, like when Jurt Cobain showed up in a yellow evening gown to the ball.

Yeah not only they had that tear for queers band they also showed an AFI video
no offense 13 but that really shouldn't be on the ball. And get rid of that fag
jamey jasta! They should had Ian as the host. Was that guy fired from MTV? Because
at least he knows more about metal than that metalcore prick and Im sick of seeing
all these gayass bands like AILD and Norma Jean on the ball they are not metal. Its
like watching the Salvation Army Thrift Store fashion show hour with maybe 2 or
3 real metal videos on the whole fukkin show!!!!

No offense taken, I think the same thing, but what AFI video did they show?

Ian Robinson? I haven't seen him associated with anything for MTV in about a year, I think he got fired. He knows alot about the scene, probably why they fired him.

That's not that heavy of a song, if they're going to play that they might as well start playing videos from My Chemical Romance.

FOR THE RECORD: AFI is good, My Chemical Romance doesn't compare to AFI on any level. Got that b****es?

here's a novel idea how about they put metal into the actual NORMAL video line-up alongside rap and punk instead of just throwing 2 hours a week late night that features mostly punk bands just keep us content! Punk is ok but, the ball is the ONLY time really metal videos are on MTV and then they throw stuff that always on the station on there .... well thanks god we have Fuse w/ Metal Asylum AND Uranium and they played even mix of metal and metalcore ... and REAL metal they played GOATWHORE last night ...GOATWHORE, YAY! ... my point is watch Metal Asylum and Uranium instead, they kick the ball's a$$ by FAR, and their daily and in good time slots.

ZerO, I thought it was Geddy Lee on helium at first. Now honestly, Coheed puts on a good live show, they're a good live band, I don't listen to them all that much though.

i gotta disagree with you broken about coheed ... i saw them open up for hatebreed like 3 or 4 months ago and they were HORRIBLE! ... i really appreciate live music, especially metal, but i had to walk out and smoke a cigarette they sucked so bad ... i almost never would walk out on live music but they were bad ... really bad ... maybe one bad night or something but it was BAD! ,,,

What was Coheed doing opening for Hatebreed?

What I meant was they sounded good live for that type of music, the highpitched punk crap.

... i fukked up broken, i accidentally said that coheed opened for hatebreed, but it was actually FLOTSAM & JETSAM, sorry ... but the same applies to my dexcription of their set ... it was horrible ... poison the well also played that night, and conicidentally, also sucked balls .... luckily hatebreed saved the night and played a badass set, almost all the songs from the first few cd's and only a couple from rise of brutality ....

I was actually shocked about last night's show they played a High On Fire video plus BLS, COC and
actually a few more real metal videos. But as always they played that gayass emo-mallcore sh** too
like The Estoheric and some faggy a$$ band called Armor For Sheep what is this stupid shiit all about
and why does the music director thinks that this garbage is metal?
