It's MTV's 30th birthday today! How's Bon Iver's Justin Vernon celebrating? By writing blog posts like this: "I could easily just say 'fuck mtv" and give sound reasoning ... But fuck it, what Ani Difranco sang [on "To the Teeth"] is what I think: open fire on hollywood open fire on MTV open fire on NBC and CBS and ABC open fire on the NRA and all the lies they told us along the way open fire on each weapons manufacturer while he's giving head to some republician senator." Guess someone doesn't want an MTV Unplugged! [Official site via Daily Swarm]
