Product Description

MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS: ROCK also allows fans to rediscover some the hottest VMA performances ever: "Please" by U2 in 1997, "Get Free" by The Vines in 2002, "All The Small Things" by Blink 182 in 2000, "Are You Gonna Go My Way" by Lenny Kravitz in 1993, "Beautiful People" by Marilyn Manson in 1997, ""Pretty Penny" by Stone Temple Pilots in 1994, "Angel Standing By" by Jewel in 1997, "Suicide Blonde" by INXS in 1990, "Tomorrow" by Silverchair in 1995 and "Just Like A Pill" by Pink in 2002.


MTV's relentless self-promotional machine rolls on with this 55-minute compilation of performances from the channel's annual Video Music Awards show (described here as "the only award show that matters"--easy for them to say, since they invented it), ranging from 1990 to 2002. Image is paramount to this operation, especially if there's a little titillation involved; thus we have the sex-kitten antics of Britney Spears and Shakira, the spectacle of a bare-chested Nelly wearing his jeans not only below his boxers but barely above his knees, and the sheer absurdity of MC Hammer's costumed cast of thousands crowding the stage for "You Can't Touch This." But there's also some good music here (Nelly's electrifying "Country Grammar," the Brian Setzer Orchestra's swinging "Jump, Jive & Wail," Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's entertainingly over-the-top "Crossroads"), as well as short features on "turntablism" and pop songwriting. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD
I can't imagine why Madonna, Janet Jackson, or Michael Jackson's VMA performances were not included in this DVD. The most influential artists in videos and performance were excluded. I don't understand. It is a travesty. I hope MTV releases more of the VMA performances with Madonna, Janet, and Michael. I'll buy this one in hopes they will release a really great complilation of VMA performances.
