Currently Booming: I Want My MTV

When MTV Classic launched last summer I was beyond thrilled, expecting to see straight from the vault programming. They have cracked out some good stuff, but not nearly as much as I'd hoped for. After a few months they stopped airing episodes of Unplugged and they've yet to tap into that vast amount of concert footage that they have tucked away. I love "I Love the 80's" but honestly, Tone Loc had two songs so why is he featured every single day???  I kind of gave up hope on actually seeing the kind of stuff I had hoped for and then this happened:

A YouTube-er named Pannoni4 started posting hours upon hours of classic MTV, exactly as it aired. Check out the footage above from the summer of 1984. It really takes you back for real, doesn't it?
