MTV launched at 12:01 am on August 1, 1981 with the words “Ladies and gentleman, rock and roll.” For those of us who were teenagers in the ’80s, this was one of coolest moments of our lives. It’s too bad MTV no longer plays music videos regularly, but at least we have videos like this to remind us of how good we had it! Appropriately, the channel kicked it all off with The Buggles’ music video for Video Killed the Radio Star!
Enjoy the very first two hours of MTV!
