MTV Trivia

The first video featured on MTV was by the group the Buggles, and it was called "Video Killed the Radio Star."


You'll be so proud of me for looking for a picture to go with this because Useless Knowledge had "the Ruggles" instead of the correct band. There are some critical comments on its page about the accuracy of their trivia HERE and some corrections. Perhaps I should look for another trivia source, but this one causes us to question, laugh, and/or discuss. Anyway, this one is named correctly.

See, you are smarter than some silly other site! I remember the video well. Of course, this is getting into my area of expertise, ancient music history....

I still love this video

Yes indeed, a classic! Perhaps they were confusing the band with the Rutles, the Beatles parody band that included Eric Idle from Monty Python.

The song was so appropriate for the launch of MTV and the start of a new generation of music - the 80's baby - it rocks!

I remember this video coming on and MTV beginning.

I loved this hit! It is on several of my compilation CDs, so I hear it all the time.
