These Vintage MTV 'Rock N' Jock' Photos Are The Gift That Keeps On Giving

A big shout out to Mark Wahlberg for retelling the story of how an ill-fated run-in at an MTV "Rock N' Jock" basketball game is the reason he and Leonardo DiCaprio didn't like each other very much in the early '90s, mostly because it reminded us that "Rock N' Jock" was a thing.

"Rock N' Jock" started back in 1991 and ran until 2004, bringing actors and rockstars together with professional athletes to play softball, basketball, and football in only the way MTV could. We dug through photo archives to bring you this glorious mess of nostalgia:
