(NEW YORK) — On August 1 — the same day MTV launched back in 1981 — MTV is officially changing VH1 Classic to MTV Classic.
With that will come a flood of nostalgic programming for Gen-Xers, including Beavis & Butt-head and its spin-off, Daria, as well as MTV Unplugged, highlights from TRL, and, of course, videos from back in the day.
MTV says in a statement, the new channel will boast “an eclectic mix of fan-favorite MTV series and music programming drawn from across its rich history, with a special focus on the 1990s and early 2000s.”
Everything old is new again starting when MTV Classic re-airs MTV Hour One — the influential network’s first-ever hour of programming — at 12:00 p.m. Eastern August 1. That will also be simulcast on Facebook.
The Total Request Live retrospective The TRL Decade will follow, as will blocks of MTV Unplugged featuring Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Oasis, and more.
Other shows that will find a home on the network include the groundbreaking animated sci-fi show Aeon Flux, plus Run’s House, Pimp My Ride, Jackass, Cribs, and Punk’d.
