    Fab 5 Freddy
    As if this were even in question.
  2. 2.
    Martha Quinn
    Huuuuuuge crush. Always and forever.
  3. 3.
    Doctor Dré
    Not to be confused with THE Dr. Dre. (And yes it's weird to use the definite article there in all caps because this is clearly also A Dr. Dre.) Still great, though.
  4. 4.
    Ed Lover
    Was always curious if having the designation LOVER in his name actually worked.
  5. 5.
    Downtown Julie Brown
    Once again, did having the word DOWNTOWN in her name make her cool? Or was she cool before that. Chicken, egg.
  6. 6.
    Adam Curry
    Went on to help invent podcasting! So we can blame him for that.
  7. 7.
    JJ Jackson
    Sorta forgettable until you see him on a list of VJs and then you're like "oh yeah I loved that guy." Definitely ranks above...
  8. 8.
    Mark Goodman
    Every once in a while I'll hear him on Sirius XM now and all I can imagine is that it's his hair talking into one of those big radio microphones.
  9. 9.
    Alan Hunter
    He was like the dad next door who was into Rock without being the creepy guy who would invite you into his garage to get you high.
  10. 10.
    Nina Blackwood
    I love this photo because her hair looks like a muppet.
  11. 11.
    Colin Quinn
    Betcha didn't know he was also on The Cosby Show.
  12. 12.
    Carson Daly
    Will he ever age? No. He will not. He will never age. In fact his legal name is CARSON DID A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL. "Carson Daly" is his stage name.
  13. 13.
    Chris Hardwick
    He didn't used to look like this but I picked a current pic because @midnight can actually be funny sometimes even though it clogs up my Twitter timeline with friends trying SO HARD to be funny.
  14. 14.
    Karen Duffy
    I met her at a party once in Vegas. I think I said something stupid like "oh yeah I used to watch you on MTV!"
  15. 15.
    Carmen Electra
    Thank you, Carmen, for making all my spring breaks feel...inadequate.
  16. 16.
    Daisy Fuentes
    More feelings of inadequacy.
  17. 17.
    Kari Wührer
    Even more feelings of inadequacy.
  18. 18.
    Mandy Moore
    Jesus I might need to see a therapist about my issues with MTV.
  19. 19.
    I had no idea she wrote a book about her time at MTV! Might have to read that now. Stirs up only subtle feelings of inadequacy so is probably ok to read.
  20. 20.
    China Kantner
    Who were the MTV execs trying to impress by hiring the offspring of 70s rock royalty?
  21. 21.
    Moon Zappa
    As I was saying.
  22. 22.
    Ashlee Simpson
    I always forget about her. And then I remember the SNL moment. Oh, Ashlee.
  23. 23.
    Pauly Shore
    Oh, Pauly.
  24. 24.
    Dan Cortese
    Viacom people were geniuses with the whole MTV sports thing. Seriously, way ahead of their time. Except for Dan. Sorry, Dan.
  25. 25.
    Jenny McCarthy
    On here only to be deliberately placed last so I can end this list with a bummer of a reminder to VACCINATE YOUR CHILDREN, PEOPLE. Sheesh.
