The first music video played on MTV on August 1, 1981, directed by Russell Mulcahy:

The Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star

@kai I LOVE the irony in that being the first music video ever played on MTV. I don’t know if it was on purpose, but I think it was.

Also it doesn’t help that I love the two albums The Buggles made. 😝

@brunoph I don't think it was an accident. MTV launched as "Sight on Sound" in 1977.
