Ah, that old cliche: "Remember when there was actually music on Music Television?" Thing is, no. Personally, I don't remember that. Thanks to programming like Beavis and Butt-head and everything on Comedy Central, cable was banned in my household until about 1999. And by then, the only music coverage/programming I ever got to see was ... I don't know, glimpses of nu-metal anarchy and ice cream-toting on-air meltdowns.
So no, the above Nashville-centric segment from an episode of MTV Sports isn't directly related to music. But dig those caddywhompus mid-'90s camera angles, authority-mocking guard-dog sound effects and crunchy background guitar tones! Anyway, it seems to be Nostalgia Day here on the Cream. Have a look to see some skateboarding Music City denizens (like this guy, for instance) busting the fattest gaps in town and hanging at places like Legislative Plaza — before joints like Sixth Ave. and the Skatepark existed. Different times, homies.
Hat-tip goes to Cream contributor Sean L. Maloney for sending along this gem.
