August 1st, 1981..MTV was launched

I remember this station and freaking loved it. Our TV stayed on it 24/7 and we almost never turned it off! It was a great time to be a young musician or music fan. I remember watching KISS “unmask” on there. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Iron Maiden “Two Minutes to Midnight” debut video at 11:58 pm! And a ton of other rock videos on there! Now Mtv is celebrating it’s 30th year anniversary and its nothing like it used to be. They need to take the “M” and use an “R” instead. It is a shell of what it used to be. Let’s get back to what it used to be because “I still want my Mtv”.:(
