First and foremost, i think the show showed everyone what we all didn't want to see. But i think deep down we know these videos are there and we have to recognize them, and that is what i think the show did. Even though i like a few of the songs that are more into the teen numbered videos, I cant say that i agree with the video themselves. i think that the ones that got me the most were the Nas, Nine Inch Nails, and Marilyn Manson. Because of my very strong religous convictions, i dont think that any one or any thing should ever be crucified in the context that they are trying to show themselves as equals to Jesus Christ. I think that that is so much worse than anything in any of the other videos. There was a statement made by P. Diddy (then Puff Daddy) that he didn't want to seem like he was trying to seem equal to Jesus in the Nas video. It didn't seem to me that he was doing that. I think that Nas was the one doing trying to make himself an equal. I dont know what Nas' point is on that but there is mine. This was also done by none other than Marilyn Manson. i just can't help but disagreeing with what Iann said about Marilyn just wanting to be the class clown and stir some things up. i think that by putting himself on a cross was worse than his portrayal as J.F.K. Maybe that is just me, but i think that no one should try and say that they are equal to the greatest person who ever lived. When Marilyn Manson dies for my sins, i will change opinion, but not until then.

I was very disturbed by the N.I.N. video where they put the monkey on the cross. I think that is just as bad as putting a person on it and I think that videos like that should be banned from MTV.

Where's the original "Relax" video from Frankie Goes to Hollywood? Banned all over the world, replaced entirely by another (sarcastic) video. Why's it not on the list?

I commend your channel for having the chutzpah to show these "controversial" music videos in their original form (or as close as original). I can understand MTV not being able to show these vids being a basic cable channel with some guidelines that have to be followed but MTV2, being a premium channel (somewhat) should be able to get away with more and what better way to do so then showing music videos like "Smack My Bitch Up", "Justify My Love", "Closer", and others uncut. I hope this proves to be more than just a one time thing for the channel. In fact, I would love for MTV2 to do this on a regular basis or if nothing else, devote a show to the uncut versions or alternate versions of music videos. This way the public could see Duran Duran's "Girls on Film", Frankie Goes To HollyWood's S&M "Relax" video, and even some videos made after 1984 if you so choose :) Again, I'm glad MTV2 is giving the public the music videos we want to see in the form they were meant to be seen. And heard (ex. "Hashpipe" by Weezer need not be censored).

P.S. Who knew there was a music video with Bjork nude in it? Now I know and it's thanks to MTV2.
