    Despite the VMAs being considered kind of a joke, it's really cool to see All Time Low on here. They deserve all the recognition they can get.

    Would just like for Megan Thee Stallion to win in anything she is nominated for.

    Man I remember when the VMA’s were everything. 1996 in particular had some crazy good shit. Beck, Smashing Pumpkins, Oasis, Cranberries, Metallica, Bush, the Fugees, Bone Thugz
