I think MTV Classic was a complete downgrade from VH1 Classic in every single aspect. I can't sit back, relax and watch the channel anymore. I couldn't understand why they did this back in 2016 except if it only had to do with the money and the ratings. MTV just destroyed another tolerable television channel by rebranding it and making it part of its worthless network. There's no true original programming, a complete lack of understanding of their audience and what they are showing them, and most evidently, the normal rotation of music videos they show on MTV Classic is abysmal compared to what they normally showed on VH1 Classic. There's little to no variety of genres, no obscurity. It's predominately Pop Music, Rap, and Hip Hop from the 90's. The mid to late 90's is easily the most favored era. In my opinion, I think that MTV Classic is more based on the typical Millenial's preferences while VH1 Classic was more calibrated for the Late Boomers and Generation X. The early to mid 2000's block is a welcome addition but an obvious way to placate the Gen Y kids born in the late 80's and early 90's. The Millenials overall, simply put, just prefer Pop Music, Rap, and Hip Hop over the more obscure Hair Metal, Progressive Metal, and Thrash Metal. If they play any Hard Rock band on any of their Non-Metal blocks, they had to have been a household name, so the more obscure stuff is basically gone. Alternative Rock is there but strongly overshadowed by Pop Music and Rap Videos.
