Foo Fighters, Courtney Love and Human Giant

Before last week The Foo Fighters, Courtney Love and Human Giant had only one thing in common...we all saw Krist Novoselic naked but now we have something bigger that unites us all. We are the only 3 groups of people that have been allowed to host MTV (and MTV2) LIVE for 24 Hours Straight!

Literally a week ago MTV came to us and asked us if we would be interested in doing a 24 hour event...in a week. We said, "Yes!"" and since then we have been working our asses off to figure out how exactly to fill the time. We have full access to the MTV vaults, we can play pretty much anything we want, with the exception of anything Nirvana related (Damn you, Courtney Love). So that means Old Remote Control, Singled Out, Beavis and Butthead, Sifle and Ollie and tons more. Plus we'll be airing a Human Giant Marathon. Every episode from our entire 1st season and we have a ton of amazing guests like....

Will Arnett
Chris Anderson
Fred Armisen
Matt Besser
Andy Blitz
Michael Cera
Cracked Out
Curtis and John
Jon Daly
Zach Galifianakis
Brett Gelman
Jon Glaser
Bill Hader
Kane Brothers (Wrote the Theme to Illusionators and Spacelords)
Nick Kroll
Adam McKay
Eugene Mirman
Morningwood
John Mullaney
The National
Bob Odenkirk
Rob Riggle
Andy Sandberg
Slovin and Allen
Michael Showalter
Jorma Taccone
Tapes 'n Tapes
Ted Leo
Tegan and Sara
The Walkmen
Andrew WK
.....and many more

It all starts This Friday (5/18) on MTV/MTV2 at Noon and continues till Saturday (5/19) Noon

So stay up with us, we are commited to staying up the entire time and every hour we'll be having contests that you'll virtually be able to interact with (I know that last part sounds lame, but it won't be)

Also If you want FREE tickets to be in the audience, just send an e-mail to battleofthebands@mtvstaff.com and please include the following:

-Name
-Age (You Have to Be over 18)
-Phone number

Of course, you are not obligated to stay in the audience for the full 24 hours and can stay as long as you want from what I understand. It should be really fun. It's basically going to be a huge party. Come and Go as you Please

This is going to be Insane!

BTW if you have a video you want to see or remember a cool episode of an old MTV show post in the comments, we'll try to play it.

Watching it. Loving it. If I weren't 400 pounds and wedged between the sides of my armchair, I'd totally come out to Times Square and break your furniture.

That was HYSTERICAL! I managed 12 hours of the marathon. I loved the Bennigan's song, The Let's Go Guys!, I loved how animate and awake you were everytime you were on screen. You made the other two look like lumps. Tell Aziz to drink more red bull next time.
