Rolling Stone's the 100 Greatest Music Videos

IN THE WEE hours of August 1st, 1981, someone flipping through their channels might have come across the image of a rocket blasting into space. The familiar sight of Neil Armstrong exiting his lunar module and walking on the moon would fill the TV screen. And then they'd hear a voiceover, with all the smooth patter of an FM disc jockey: "Ladies and gentlemen, rock & roll." Cue power chords, and a flag with a network logo — something called MTV — that rapidly changed colors and patterns. This wasn't a news channel; it was "Music Television." If they kept tuning in, they'd see clips and hear VJs talk about bringing you the latest in music videos. At this point, viewers might have a few questions, like: Is this like a radio station on TV? What is a "VJ"? And what the hell is a "music video"?
