Party on, dude.
30 October 2002 | by matlock-6See all my reviews

Wow, great memories! Headbanger's Ball was the late night showcase for hard rock and heavy metal videos on Mtv. Very similar to "Alternative Nation" and "120 minutes", with a VJ or two (mostly, it was Riki Rachtman) presenting videos, goofing around and talking with various musicians.

Some people are surprised by the fact that Mtv used to show something other than N'SYNC videos and garbage.
