What was the first video to appear on MTV?

  • "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey
  • "When Doves Cry" by Prince
  • "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles correct

    Gotta love a station that appreciates a little bit of irony. On August 1st, 1981, at 12:01 am the first 24-hour video music channel launched with "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. MTV has changed a little bit in the last 35-years. Now, you can expect to find reality shows about teens that party too much or internet hijinx, but definitely not music videos.
