Popular music television is biased and particular. It shows the same famous artists we’ve seen for years, portrays new artists with similar features in a new radical limelight, and some times feed viewers with videos by authentic new artists wanting to get a different message across the airwaves and create great food for thought. Although these great works of artistry some times get aired, directv, most of the time they’re in the shadows, only to be found by people who are especially interested in independent music and artists. Independent music can be popular among many different groups of people, but for the most part does not obtain massive pop culture success. When this success does rarely happen, which can usually be seen in the form of one independent band per year that gets displayed as a breakthrough new artist on MTV and other music television channels alike, this artist is overtime shunned from the independent music-goer community. This is a strange complex that has never been fully theorized or explained, but it happens to almost every single artist that becomes a world wide success. Many independent artists will crave a taste for this world wide fame as long as music exists, while others will refuse to air videos or content on mainstream networks.

Music videos don’t just influence our culture, but they are also influenced by our culture. That statement may seem a little wonky to many people, but it’s absolutely true.
Many music videos we see on popular television are shown to the masses, and usually they’re of content we create and repeat every day. When a music video has broken this pattern, creating unique content based on earlier content but incorporating it’s own creative style, our culture is further influenced.
This is why music and visual art in music videos changes.I found some more information
