History reveals itself for some of music’s most iconic moments.

The Redbull Music Academy has created a music lover’s dream; a feature explaining the creative process behind 22 of the most iconic logos in music history. The list includes stories from heroic metal band KISS to hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan, alongside Def Jam Recordings, MTV, Run DMC, and more.

MTV was the first 24-hour music-video network in the world. It launched on August 1, 1981, revolutionizing both music and television. The logo was born by Founding Creative Director Fred Seibert whose idea was a simple one, he block lettered the M to counteract the spray-painted T-V- symbolising rebellion within youth culture which was exactly what the brand was going for.
