Question: Has a video ever been banned from MTV for something other than being offensive/graphic?
Answer: Yes.

"The promotional video made for this was banned by MTV after being played on 120 Minutes due to its nature, in which the camera zooms in and spins so fast around the band, who are playing in a subway with a harmonica player, that it would induce dizziness within the viewer."
-Wikipedia article on Rattled by the Rush, a single by Pavement

  1. I love Malkmus's face. Just look at that. The still from when the page loads, I mean... It is Stephen Malkmus looking down at his guitar in such a way that indicates he is about to throw up.

    Oh, MTV.
