The list was full of artists who'd made long careers out of memorable music videos, with multiple signature moments and often a video style entirely their own. But what about the artists whose video legacies are mostly associated with just one clip? One of the most enduring videos of the '80s, in large part because it was famously the first-ever video played upon MTV's launch on August 1, Though the simultaneously backwards- and forwards-looking "Video Killed the Radio Star" clip remains a captivating watch over 40 years later, it was the Buggles' only major hit on the nascent channel.
