Some familiar ’90s slackers will be making a comeback tonight: Beavis and Butthead. MTV’s show was originally centered around the two characters watching music videos on their couch while providing crude, yet hilarious and surprisingly astute commentary about the music.
Even though they only ever wore [lastfm]AC/DC[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Metallica[/lastfm] t-shirts, their musical “tastes” were not limited to metal.

MTV only ran new episodes of the series from 1993 to 1997, but with a movie and lots of repeats on various channels, the show has had a larger impact beyond those who were in the show’s 10-18 year old demographic in the 90s. “Beavis & Butthead” revealed a number of different artists to a mainstream audience that may have not otherwise been aware of them. Check out the videos below of [lastfm]Radiohead[/lastfm], [lastfm]Lou Reed[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Flaming Lips[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm] along with Beavis & Butthead‘s commentary.
