MTV First Day (81/08/01)

30 years ago today MTV went live on cable television across the United States. Famously opening with The Buggles' 'Video Killed the Radio Star', the first day's playlist included such early 80s staples at Rod Stewart, Elvis Costello, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, The Cars, and many others. Relive that day 30 years later!
