VH1 Classic will switch to MTV Classic on August 1st. The new format will focus on the 90s with programs that left a mark on million of millennials, like Beavis and Butthead, Daria, Pimp My Ride, Punk’d, Jackass and MTV Unplugged.
According to a released from the network, the rebrand takes effect on Monday, August 1 – 35 years to the day that MTV first debuted – at 6:00 a.m. when MTV Classic will air “MTV Hour One,” MTV’s first hour of programming from 1981.
Following MTV’s first hour ever, fans will tune into a “Total Request Live” retrospective “The TRL Decade,” followed by a marathon of some of the most memorable episodes of “MTV Unplugged” –many of which haven’t aired in years–including artists Bob Dylan, Alice In Chains, Erykah Badu, Oasis, Neil Young, Nirvana and more, that will lead into a primetime animated programming block including “Daria,” “Beavis & Butt-head” and “Aeon Flux.” “MTV Hour One” will also air on MTV’s Facebook page via Facebook Live.
