Nowadays, MTV’s image mostly consists “reality” shows starring superficial, plastic LA girls and fist-pumping “guidos” from the tri-state area. Not exactly the cutting-edge music giant we once knew. However, under that horrifyingly hilarious exterior lies a sleeping giant, percolating with innovative new acts with just enough pop hooks and power to bring the music back into Music TeleVision. One such band can be found right here on OurStage. Not only has The Hollow Sound‘s music been featured on MTV’s College Life, but the band was selected as four- time finalists on MTVU’s Best Music On Campus as well. As the 2009 grand prize winners, the band got the opportunity to perform at Six Flags as part of MTV’s VMA Tour along with All Time Low and The White Tie Affair. (Check out their VMA Tour video here!) They also performed at the 2008 Warped Tour and SXSW in 2009. These guys obviously have a pretty impressive résumé , but what is it about their music that makes it so popular with the MTV folks?
