On MTV Classic, every day will be Throwback Thursday.

VH1 Classic will be rebranded as MTV Classic, a nostalgic mix of the network’s most iconic shows, it was announced Thursday. Favorites like Laguna Beach, Punk’d, Beavis & Butt-head, and Daria will all feature on the new channel, launching Aug. 1.

“From Beavis & Butt-head to Laguna Beach, MTV’s programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance,” MTV president Sean Atkins said. “MTV Classic gives audiences a modern and artful home for classic MTV programming and — alongside MTV, MTV2, MTV Live, and mtvU — rounds out a diverse portfolio with music and youth culture at its core.”

The new channel debuts Aug. 1, marking MTV’s 35th anniversary. It will rebroadcast MTV Hour One – also live-streaming on Facebook – followed by a Total Request Live retrospective, The TRL Decade. Monday through Thursday, MTV Classic’s programming block will consist of iconic shows like Daria, Beavis and Butt-head, Cribs, Pimp My Ride, Jackass, and Punk’d. Fridays will highlight classic music series like MTV Unplugged and Storytellers. Weekends will marathon binge-worthy reality gems like Laguna Beachand The Real World.
