Fantastic song. For your viewing pleasure ( I found the repeating sample irritating as I copied this :/ ), the blurb in the intro (from the version at follows; I do feel the first paragraph belongs over at the VKtRS node really :(

(...a-ha, just seen that it's noted at August 1, 1981)

On August 1, 1981 at 12:01am, MTV aired its first music video, "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. The debut is still remembered as the breakthrough cultural event of the early 80's, marking the beginning of the music video era. Even today, almost nineteen years later, this video and related commentaries can be found on numerous sites all over the web

Appropriately enough, "Video Killed the Radio Star" celebrated the birth of one new medium - the music video - and mourned the waning of another - radio.

On June 6, 2000, helped usher in another paradigm-breaking medium with a parody of the original MTV video - "Internet Killed the Video Star". Like the video it parodies, "Internet Killed" chronicles the explosive growth of a whole new medium - the Internet. This animated music parody leaves a lot of roadkill in its wake - MTV, AOL, Bill Gates and others, and is the first in a series of music parodies from eStudio that will appear on
