MTV is 25 Years Old Today : How Times Have Changed

MTV was born on August 1, 1981 and did not air a black video for the next two years until Michael Jackson integrated its airwaves. Of course, now MTV is down with dumb Hip Hop culture music and metal appears to be dead on its airwaves. We're just glad that rap stars have moved on to productive movie careers. Think Will Smith, Queen Latifah and Ice Cube.

Congrats MTV. Since 1981 Michael Jackson experienced technical difficulties, AIDS expressed itself, black-on-black murder metastasized and capitalism has provided an unprecedentedly prosperous lifestyle in America. Your progeny, BET, was even sold for $3 billion to Viacom.
