This week, I’ve been counting down the first videos played on MTV when it premiered 40 years ago. Today’s music video is the fourth video to be played on MTV, following Video Killed The Radio Star, You Better Run, and She Won’t Dance With Me.
The video for The Who’s You Better You Bet was filmed at Shepperton Studios in March of 1981 and it provided a look at the new Who as this was the first video to feature Kenney Jones on drums. Jones, of course, replaced Keith Moon after the latter’s tragic death.
