Watch the first 10 videos played on MTV, August 1, 1981

If you are a fan of the ’80s you probably know the first video played when MTV launched on August 1, 1981 was The Buggles “Video Killed the Radio Star” but do you remember the next 9 videos played? Here is a refresher with some help from YouTube. That’s where I watch my videos these days anyway. But before the countdown, watch the kickoff of MTV and the introduction of the VJs.

#1 “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles

#2 “You Better Run” by Pat Benatar
