Today, the new-aged kids might not be familiar with music countdowns considering they’re now archaic and defunct. In case you guys don’t know, MTV’s TRL helped millions of people become music aficionados because they constantly spoon-fed us new music on a daily basis. Carson Daly was a hero in our eyes. He helped usher in a generation of new artists like Kanye West, Eminem, 50 Cent, and more because of his extraordinary platform. For that we’re forever grateful.
