      MTV is just TMZ with music so don’t expect the unknown band to win anything.

      Thanks but I prefer the only bold song nominated to win, born this way. GAY LESBIANS? Drag queens? The other songs are to scared to state them directly.

      Rise Against’s videos have always had strong messages in them.

      Love Rise Against. But MTV has been garbage for over a decade now. They choose superficial shit over music video art all the time.

      @Kev C: Rise Against is definitely not an “unknown band,” and pop-punk-rock kids are known to get on the internet and vote in droves when it comes to these types of awards (let me regale you with tales of when Fall Out Boy used to win every conceivable viewer’s choice award for no reason…) so there’s hope yet.

      Almost every single Rise Against video is well-done with a powerful message, though. They had one about deforestation that made me cry back in junior high, and I remember their video for “Audience of One” was about the USA’s turn toward extreme right-wing policies and included a scene where a sociopathic child rips apart toys depicting a gay wedding and replaces one of the grooms with a bride and then puts barbed wire fence around it. Look it up if you haven’t seen it, they’re really a great band with great videos.

      MTV has no credibility as far as I’m concerned. Over the years, it has supported homophobic music acts left, right and center. It continues to do so. Its concern for gay rights is phony and simply designed as a token gesture to get us on side. Don’t fall for it.

      MTV and its executives can fuck off as far as I’m concerned. Don’t watch it. Don’t contribute to its profits.
