Andrew Liszewski, The Verge:

The archives of the MTV News website, which had remained accessible online after the unit was shut down last year by parent company Paramount Global, have now been completely taken offline. As Variety reported yesterday, both and now redirect visitors to the MTV website’s front page.

Truly sad, especially given that the upkeep of these archives must have been – at best – a rounding error for Viacom.

For Gen Z, Alpha, and those to come, it’s both going to be odd to explain that, “Yes, MTV once played music videos, and was not wall to wall Ridiculousness.”, but also: “When this intro played, you knew that shit was about to go down.”

Kurt Loder + Tabitha Soren forever.
