#ThisDayInMusic the reigning king of pop music channels, MTV, was born!
So join us in raising our glasses to well… Us, as we celebrate the fact that we’ve turned another year older #ThisDayInMusic. Founded on August 1, all the way back in 1981, our rollercoaster ride on the pop music scene was flagged off with the popular music video, ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ with Pat Benatar's ‘You Better Run’ following suit. MTV has since lent a major helping hand in the careers of several popstars of international repute, including Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Radiohead, The Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Alanis Morrissette, Fiona Apple, The Cranberries, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, N Sync, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Puff Daddy, Jay Z, Eminem and Duran Duran.
Having done our bit for pop music, MTV India has since lent an ear to the indies scene in the country and recently launched a dedicated channel, Pepsi MTV Indies to toast our country’s rich subculture!
Drop in your wishes for us in the comments box below as we celebrate our 33rd birthday & promise to keep the entertainment going strong for another 33 years, and more!
