MTV Theme Music from 1981
Is there anyone who is familiar with the original MTV theme music from the early 80's (a driving guitar riff that played while the MTV logo flashed on the flag in front of the astronaut)? I heard a song the other day that featured virtually the same guitar riff. Anyone have a clue what the title/group of this song might be? Unfortunately I can't recall any of the lyrics

Do you mean it sounds like this?
If so, hopefully someone will recognize your one from it.
No bells ringing here; though it does start off like the Kinks - All Day and All of the Night. [I realise that is far too old though - even older than the MTV theme]

I will echo F A B Scott's vote that the old MTV theme was a sample of "Day and All of the Night" by The Kinks.Them that can, do; them that can't... memorize Artist and Title

Yes, that's the riff and it does sound similar to All Day and All of the Night only with more of an edge. From the sound of it, I'm think it's more 80's new wave.
Thanks for your help. I'll keep searching and let you know if I find it.
