The Lyrics

These days when you change the TV channel to MTV, you're bombarded with some of the crappiest shows on television. It's getting to the point where you can't simply listen to music anymore on "Music Televison".
This ain't the way
That MTV's supposed to be
The way their shows are, oh no
When they're assaulting me
It's a bunch of losers being mean
Makes me want to destroy the screen

I can't hear music
I can't hear music
The sound of music videos seems to disappear
I can't hear music
Just pure music
Whenever I tune in baby
When their shows are here

Watchin' them
It makes me mystified
And I can't explain, oh no
Why they let them all inside
If they're leaving I don't know when
I wash my eyes but here they come again

I can't hear music
I can't hear music
The sound of music videos seems to disappear
I can't hear music
Just pure music
Whenever I tune in baby
When their shows are here

I can't hear music during Jackass
I can't hear music in Boiling Points
I can't hear music in Real World
I can't hear music
I can't hear music (baby)

Aaaaah!

I can't hear music
I can't hear music
The sound of music videos seems to disappear
I can't hear music
Just pure music
Whenever I tune in baby
When their shows are here

You should see what's going on with MTV's weak-sister station, VH1. It's surreal. At least there's VH1 Classic. And Fuse. I'm not a big fan of metal, but Mistress Juliya is, and I'm a big fan of hers.

Good use of the OS. I even remember when they had music on MTV (wait, isn't that a line from 1985?)

Without exception for the last few years when I flip through the channels to catch MTV it has no music videos on. I call it Mutilated TV now. =)

(SOTM) Haven't heard the original for a long time. Very good parody, so true.

(SOTM) Yes, the Beach Boys are grossly underrepresented by MTV nowadays... nice parody.

(SOTM) Don't know the original song...wish I did, this wasn't half bad!

SOTM - Say What? MTV used to be a music channel? Surely you must be joking! ;-)
John Jenkins - September 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Very good title, very good parody. The "I wash my eyes" line was my fave.
Red Ant - September 20, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above and very good.

DKTOS either, but good job articulating something I've felt for a long time. It's been all downhill since "Celebrity Deathmatch".

The only music is the sound of fingers tapping on the keyboard... well written, and a nice idea.

I thought I knew the Beach Boys, but I guess not. So - are you ready for a freaky story? - I went and downloaded this and then realized I CAN'T HEAR MUSIC. I could not get any sound to come out of my computer. Internal speakers, headphones, nothing. After profanity, a helpline call to my brother, and a reboot, it finally came back and now I can hear music again. But for about a half hour there, this thing was totally mute. I blame you entirely, Scathe.

Anyway, nice job. I gave up on MTV years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if they pull an AT&T or a KFC one of these days and say "MTV doesn't stand for anything. It's just a name, not an acronym."

(SOTM) I can't get MTV where I am. From the sounds of it (or lack thereof), I'm not missing much :-) Great song

(SOTM) MTV = Many Terrible Videos. Good work.

(SOTM) I think Spaff is taking this 'Can't Hear Music' thing a bit too personal. ;-) It has great RAP-poor with the fans. 5's

SOTM. Best thoughts on the subject I've seen lately. Truer words never spoken. I quit watching many years ago.
