  Fact
   

MTV


MTV is one of the most popular music TV channels nowadays, but do you know how it all started? MTV aired for the first time at 12:01 AM on August 1, 1981 with the phrase "Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll." These words were followed by the original MTV theme song played over an image of the Apollo 11 moon landing with the US flag replaced with an "MTV" flag. The first video to air on the channel was 'Video Killed the Radio Star' by the Bugles.
