The Night Thurston and Beck blew my 16 year old mind

one of the truly great moments in the history of MTV and the 90s in general.

Thurston Moore’s guest host spot on 120 Minutes (greatest show ever!!!) where he interviews a very young Beck. this was right when "Loser" was first coming out. Beck gave the strangest interview i’d ever seen at the time and then Mike D from the Beastie Boys shows up to promote their summer tour with Johnny Cash, Donovan, Oprah, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins and then the 3 of them do some noiserock/rap improv at the end. total joy.


  1. This episode of 120 minutes might have seriously changed my life. I was in complete awe of these three for quite some time...soon after this came out:


  2. oh shit. the Jon Spencer "Flavor" remix!!! fuck yeah, dude. that's my #1 favorite video of the 1990s.
