Yes, "November Rain" was #1  8)

As for "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Queen, it was re-realeased and became a hit again due to it being in the soundtrack for "Wayne's World"

1992.... Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2,  En Vogue, and TLC  8)

While "November Rain" is one of the greatest videos, Guns N' Roses had better songs, IMHO.

It's odd that Beastie Boys weren't ranked since "So What'cha Want" & "Pass The Mic" were from that year. Also "Scenario" from A Tribe Called Quest.

"The Real World" (1992 to present) premiered on MTV...ugh! In which reality programming would dominate television by the next decade and the show would be overexposed on the network with countless marathons and also "Road Rules" several years later...  :P MTV have officially jumped, IHMO.


Though the Movie Awards  also started and the network already have experimented with non-music programming several years prior from "Liquid Television" (1991), "House of Style" (1989), and "MTV Sports" (1990).

Def Leppard "Let's Get Rocked" from the 1992 VMAs

From the lack of enthusiasm from the audience and the band's attempt of dressing "trendy", it's a sign of change of the musical climate and MTV's taste to rap,R&B, alternative, and non-glam metal bands Guns N' Roses & Metallica...



In contrast to "Tear It Down" from the 1989 VMAs.

I like the "old" Def Leppard much better.  What's strange is that I was in my early 20s then and that should have been the time that I was most into music.  The problem is that was the time that I was beginning to feel very out of touch with music.

"Club MTV" replacement "The Grind" premiered on the Fall of 1992. Unlike "Club MTV", which featured various forms of music from freestyle, Top 40, dance-pop, hip hop, and R&B, "The Grind" mostly just  focused on hip hop and R&B.


Though both shows lasted about 5 years. There's not much info about it, but according to a former dancer, who posted a clip on YouTube, it wasn't filmed at the Palladium, which was closed/torn down by the late 1990's. According to IMDB, several "Club MTV" dancers also appeared on the "The Grind".


The show was hosted by "Real World" housemate Eric Nies, which was the network's attempt to create a "big star".  ::) :P

MTV India currently airs a dance show called "The Grind", which premiered in 2011. According to Wiki, MTV India is mostly reality programming like the US.


Honestly, I was indifferent towards the show, which was towards it's run when I started watching MTV in a regular basis around 1996/1997.

His 'Real World' Is No 'Grind" MTV's Eric Nies -- Host of ''The Grind,'' this former model and reality star has become the hottest hip-hop VJ on TV

By Benjamin Svetkey | Mar 26, 1993


 
Yo, yo, yo! Check it out. Eric is in the house! He's got it going on! And the girlies are shoutin' out!

Translation: Eric Nies, the aspiring model who strutted his shirtless stuff last summer on MTV's The Real World, has become the network's hottest hip-hop VJ. As host of The Grind, Nies, 21, has transformed himself into the homiest homeboy this side of Marky Mark, complete with baggy jeans, crotch-grabbing gesticulations, and street-speak homilies.

 ''This is really how I talk,'' insists Nies, as he lounges bare-chested in his dressing room after a recent taping of the dance show. ''I hung out with the hip-hop crowd when I was growing up in New Jersey, so this is my everyday lingo. I start conversations by saying 'Yo!' I just exaggerate it for the kids who watch the show.'' (Grind producer Alex Coletti offers a different take on Nies' vernacular: ''I've never heard Eric say 'Yo' off the set,'' he says.)

 Real or not, Nies' shtick is clearly working: Since The Grind began airing last October, it has become one of MTV's most popular daytime series, with 2 million viewers per week, according to the music network. Like its dance-show predecessor, Club MTV, its appeal isn't just the tunes. ''A lot of guys turn on The Grind just to see pretty girls with nice bodies,'' Nies admits. ''Dancing is a very sexual act — the way the bodies move, the way they look when they're moving — that's probably one of the reasons this show is so popular.'' Another reason: ''Yeah some girls probably watch to see me.''

 They can see much more of Nies in July, when he'll appear topless in his own 1994 calendar. ''I'm not looking to stay on MTV forever,'' he says. ''I'm waiting for opportunities to break into other areas. Whatever comes up next, whatever God allows me to do, that's the road I'll take.''

Headbangers Ball Best of 1992


Quote
December 19, 1992 - Riki Rachtman Host Best of 1992


Metallica - Sad But True
Pantera - Walk
Helmet - Unsung
Stone Temple Pilots - Sex Type Thing
Ozzy Osbourne - Road To Nowhere
Guns N' Roses - November Rain
Motorhead - Hellraiser
Faith No More - Midlife Crisis
Skid Row - Quicksand Jesus
Megadeth - Symphony Of Destruction
Kiss - Unholy
Slayer - Raining Blood
Suicidal Tendencies - Nobody Hears
Corrosion Of Conformity - Vote With A Bullet

Danzig - Dirty Black Summer
Body Count - There Goes The Neighborhood
Soundgarden - Rusty Cage
Alice In Chains - Angry Chair
Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod
Ministry - Just One Fix
AC/DC - Highway To Hell
Prong - Prove You Wrong

Out with the glam and in with the grunge, which MTV pretty much favored at that point with hardcore rap and very much venturing to more non-music programming with a certain program about seven strangers under one house.


Though by that point Vince Neil had left Motley Crue and Ratt had already split though Cinderella had some good songs such as "The More Things Change" and "Hot and Bothered"

Guns N' Roses "November Rain" is a classic video  8)

As for Slayer "Raining Blood" and AC/DC "Highway to Hell", both had live albums in 1992
