The same old, same old.
9 February 2000 | by wishkah7See all my reviews

I've watched this program for about maybe 3 months just to see what they would play. But I have to admit, _some_ of my favorite groups made it like Green Day, The Offspring, and Blink 182. KoRn is okay. But IMHO, those were the only good groups whose vidoes made it on TRL.

Everyday it's the same thing on this show. Either the Backstreet Boys or N'Sync come in first. Also, they play a lot of stuff that only attracts the teeny-bopper genre, such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguliera, Ricky Martin, TLC, some rap, and Mandy Moore! After I realized it was just the same junk, I've stopped watching and gave up on MTV all together.

This show is only for teeny-bopping trendies. And it also seems like Carson Daily literally falls for the boy bands. Why can't they have a special TRL or even a show just like it that only have requests for videos from Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, The Offspring, Bush, Live, Soundgarden, and some of the old rock groups that have made videos like The Rolling Stones!

Also, another nightmare was that even Hole and No Doubt made guest appearences on TRL and were even in the countdown! This show is only for teeny-boppers who like this type of music. They ought to change the name of this show to, "Total Payola Live"!
