Hittin' the reset button: August 1, 1981

The first in a series, from time to time ...ASAT will take a look back at some of the days that changed everything.

You've heard the story of MTV's first moments about a bazillion times, so I won't bore you with the details, but here is the first video ever played on MTV, thanks to YouTube and Universal Music. It really speaks for itself.

Needed a Brit group to get it going of course.

Actually even more amazing is that of the 62 videos aired that first day back in 1981, 2 belonged to Cliff Richard !!!

The old Bachelor Boy really was a trend setter.

Yes, last year (I think) VH1 Classic ran the first 24 hours of MTV on the anniversary of the launch. It was . . . interesting, to say the least.

And what did Trevor and Geoff do with their newfound fame? Go join their favorite band, of course! :-p

This is a great song and a great choice for MTV. It's almost impossible to watch MTV now, there isn't any music on it.
