MTV Headbanger’s Ball Halloween Special from 1989

In case you’re staying in on this Halloween night like I am, you may want something to keep you entertained between visits from modern kids looking for free candy. And since you’re here at Retro Ramblings, then you must enjoy the finer things in life like stuff from the ’80s and ’90s. Well, I’ve got you covered on both fronts with this Watch & Listen feature.

It’s the 1989 MTV Headbanger’s Halloween special with Alice Cooper hosting! Not only is he presenting some of the spookier music videos and hosting segments in between, but this video also has all of the glorious 1989 commercials still intact as well. So feel free to make this your Halloween night entertainment, and take a little trip back in time while you do it. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!

The 1993 MTV Rock & Jock BBall Jam

MTV’s Rock & Jock series of sporting events are a big part of my ’90s nostalgia. The softball games, basketball games, and later on the football games, were some of the highlights of MTV’s offerings for me. The basketball games were always my favorite, and the game usually aired on NBA All-Star weekend.

The teams were always made up of a combination of NBA players, actors, musicians, MTV regulars, and other pop culture personalities. This eccentric mix of talent always made for a memorable game, and in this post, we’re looking back at one of the more entertaining games from the series in 1993.

Wax Pack Flashback: Beavis & Butt-Head Trading Cards (1994)

With Beavis & Butt-Head back in the news pretty heavily these days with the release of their new movie, Beavis & Butt-Head Do the Universe, it seems like a great time to share this video I made for The Retro Network opening a pack of their trading cards from 1994. I hope you enjoy the little trip down memory lane watching me open the pack and seeing what I found inside.

Wax Pack Flashback: Yo! MTV Raps Trading Cards (1991)

Here is yet another old pack of trading card that you can watch me open from my Wax Pack Flashback series on the TRNTV YouTube Channel.

In this video, I open a pack of Yo! MTV Raps cards from 1991. Yo! MTV Raps was a daily show that was on MTV every afternoon at the time featuring the best and latest rap videos of the era. These cards feature shots of many of the artists whose videos appeared on the show at the time. Legendary names like Run D.M.C, M.C. Hammer, Heavy D, and more.

So take a little stroll back in time and live vicariously through me as I open this old pack of cards!
