Watch Behind The Music


If you are a big fan of a particular band that has had great success in the business, then Behind the Music has probably done a segment on them. Behind the Music is a TV show that ran from 1997 to 2006. However, after its original run, it still made some Behind the Music specials from time to time. This TV series was, and still is, a very popular show because they went beyond what a band really was.

One of the aspects that made Behind the Music what it is today was their interviews with members of the band. The interviews usually revolved around the band's success, popularity, hardships and many other important factors. Aside from interviews, Behind the Music would also show clips and movies from the band's past. A great example would be clips from their childhood, high school years or any other times in their life.

Since a band's success is built on great songs, Behind the Music also focuses on which songs made them popular. They would also go into the band's discography and any hidden meanings behind the lyrics of their music. Going behind the music of a band also entails finding out any influences the band had during their ascension to popularity. The band's hardships is also documented and recorded for the show, which will show just how committed the band was to making their music work successfully. Usually, at the end of each show, Behind the Music wraps up by showing where the band is now.

Today, Behind the Music still does documentaries from time to time. However, you will find old reruns that air on TV every now and then. Checking out these types of documentaries can really help to get a sense of what the band had to go through to get where they are. You might even get to see your favorite band on Behind the Music, and see some of their inner workings behind the scenes.

VH1 to Bring Back 'Pop Up Video'

It's been a long time since VH1 has had a solid reputation with hardcore music geeks. On the rare occasions they still show it, "Behind the Music" went from exploring the trials and tribulations of landmark music acts to exclusively covering musicians whose careers are still on the rise. And even for that, you have to wade through "Basketball Wives," "Mob Wives," "Wedding Wars," and of course - nonstop nostalgia. While the era of "Best Week Ever" might be over, and the network ran out of decades to love, they still managed to find some room for "The Greatest," a series that is pretty much a video version of the numerous Top 10/25/50 lists that permeate the web.
