PostModern MTV was a nightly program in the late 1980s and very early 1990s on MTV, originally hosted by Kevin Seal and later by Dave Kendall featuring such pre-grunge "alternative" artists as The Cure, They Might Be Giants, Depeche Mode, Siouxsie and The Banshees, and Love and Rockets. The show was essentially a weeknight version of the Sunday night program 120 Minutes, with an emphasis on a more mainstream appeal.

After the departure of the original host, a reworked program entitled Alternative Nation was introduced, which followed a similar format and feel. The MTV Europe Edition of the PostModern show was hosted by Pip Dann in the 1990s.
