Nothing did more to further the cause of Alternative Nation-building than 120 Minutes, MTV’s Sunday-night video showcase of non-mainstream acts. For nearly two decades, the program spanned musical eras from ’80s college rock to ’00s indie, with grunge, Britpop, punk, industrial, electronica and more in between. MAGNET raids the vaults to resurrect our 120 favorite and unjustly forgotten videos from the show’s classic era.
#102: Daisy Chainsaw “Love Your Money”
According to most ’90s music histories, England had no truck with the grunge and riot-grrl movements; London’s Daisy Chainsaw proves that just wasn’t true. Whose ragged babydoll dress came first: Courtney Love’s, Kat Bjelland’s or DC singer KatieJane Garside’s? 1992’s “Love Your Money” was a minor U.K. hit and was even smaller in the U.S., evidence that some tradewinds only blew one way back then.
