Sung to the tune of "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles

I saw you on the tube back in Eighty-One
Watching the videos used to be so much fun
The industry changed so much when you were young

Oh-a oh

But now I'm sick of all the gameshows on MTV
I'd rather go online and download an MP3
When I get enough I'll burn another CD

Oh-a oh
I've got a modem
Oh-a oh
What do I need you for?

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star
The cable modems broke your heart.

They don't know how to cope with new technology
They're all afraid of Napster's popularity
And they're worried it will kill the whole industry

MTV
You were the first one.
Oh-a oh
You were the worst one.

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star
In my mind I'll download and see, before I go and buy the CD
Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

In your mind you're doing well, but your network's gone to hell
Broadband came and broke your heart, put the blame on DSL.

You are a video star
I am a Nap Star
Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star
