Once again, the band (and their fans) caused a large amount of damage, destroying the ceiling, spray painting walls and knocking over amps and a motorcycle which was brought into the washroom as a prop.

On October 9, 2008, the band Fucked Up returned to MTV Live, the first time since January 16, 2007 when the band first performed in the studio and caused thousands of dollars in damage to the set.The show won the 2008 Gemini Award for "Best Talk Series".After beginning as a show that featured performances, interviews, stories on musicians, and focused on music, the show has become dedicated to focusing on its hosts, with little musical content."The second half" previously known as MTV News has been renamed Sex, News & Rock 'n' Roll and features three distinct segments, as reflected in the show's title: pop culture news hosted by Johnny Hockin and Aliya-Jasmine Sovani, a 1 Girl 5 Gays clip montage and previews of five newly released music videos. The show has since mostly ceased all musical performances and guests, and has become more of a satiric comedy news show.Since 2010, the show now only has 4 hosts - Daryn Jones, Nicole Holness, Paul "The Intern" Leumieux, and Sheena Snively.
