MTV WENT LIVE ON AUGUST 1, 1981, EXACTLY 40 YEARS AGO TODAY.. as the joke goes. Music television gave us 14 years of music in the past 40..
Let it be known forever that the first song ever played on MTV was VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR.
And since then, everything–INCLUDING MTV–killed the Video Star!
