MTV Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack
by Beck

Album: MTV Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack (1993)


  • This was the first single released by Beck.
  • Beck says MTV makes him want to smoke crack because at MTV "everything's perfect and everything's bright." And the image MTV gives off greatly contrasts the really dull lives of those who watch MTV and buy into what they produce. >>
