120 Minutes With Matt Pinfield
Music fans who preferred an alternative to mainstream artists found a comfort zone on "120 Minutes," MTV's weekly ode to the unusual and offbeat tunes never heard on formulaic radio. Its eight-year run ended in 2003, a victim of the network's move to more reality-based programming. But, incredibly, there's still a place for music on MTV, and nearly a decade later, this revival of "120 Minutes" is glorious music to the ears of its many fans. Now on MTV2, the series features the return of original and iconic host Matt Pinfield and a familiar format -- plenty of videos from both established and new indie acts, shining a spotlight on the likes of Beady Eye, The Kills, Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, Death Cab for Cutie, Lupe Fiasco and Grouplove.
