Happy Birthday MTV! Best of MTV Unplugged: CMN Vibes

Happy 37th Birthday MTV!



On this day in 1981, MTV began broadcasting for the first time. In the ’80s, MTV was the hottest, newest form of advanced technology with the promise of revolutionizing the way people listened to music, and it sure was the first of its kind. At 12:01 a.m. Aug. 1, they played footage of 1981’s space shuttle launch and the 1969 moon landing, signifying the importance of this channel. Set to rock n’ roll riffs, this was a live music revolution, of nonstop jams.

One of the most notable segments on this channel was MTV Unplugged.  The show featured musicians performing unplugged versions of their electric repertoire, with some of the most notable renditions.

With that being said, let’s dive into the good stuff. A special edition of CMN Vibes! The Best of MTV Unplugged.
