March 8, 1993, quite frankly, the world changed.
It is on that day that Mike Judge creations Beavis And Butt-Head graced the airwaves of MTV and soon thereafter became a pop culture phenomenon that would even appear on the cover of Rolling Stone three times. While we could provide a sprawling list of great moments, for the sake of you, the reader, here are five of our favorite hilarious Beavis And Butt-Head moments.

That Time They Were On Late Show With David Letterman
Yes…even Beavis and Butt-Head have to do press for their own film. They even brought and set up a clip from Beavis and Butt-Head Do America!
