Throwback Thursday - MTV Premiered

Throwback Thursday - MTV Premiered

Today on August 1st, 1981 MTV premiered. Immediately after cable television instantly turned into the most coveted obsession by kids everywhere. I remember hanging out at my Aunts house memorized by Pat Benatar’s sexy moves and completely freaked out by Michael Jackson’s Thiller. Since then, MTV did exactly what radio has done. Cluttered up the airwaves with crappy shows, when it should just shut up and play music.

Anyhow…for nostalgic sake, here are the first 3 videos ever aired on MTV.

Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star

Pat Benatar - You Better Run

Rod Stewart - She Won't Dance With Me
