Today being MTV Day, we eventually got around to music videos and those we watched over and over and over.

Van Halen's "Jump" - Who could forget Eddie’s yellow zebra jacket, Alex’s roto-toms, and Diamond Dave’s splits and kicks? It was live performance magic.  

MTV made its debut 8/1/81 and changed the game forever.
