Fuse TV is a music video-oriented television channel. Fuse began as MuchUSA, an affiliate of Canadian music television network MuchMusic. Fuse has modeled itself as the premier cable channel for rock, alternative, punk, hardcore, and indie music. Fuse began in May 2003.
Within early 2003, CHUM revoked Rainbow Media's license to use the MuchMusic and MMUSA name and everything else having to do with it. By April, it was announced that the network would be renamed "Fuse" with various promos and scrolls.
On May 19, 2003 just before 6 a.m. Eastern Time, MMUSA aired its final video: New Found Glory's "My Friends Over You". After the video ended the network went to commercial break. After that Fuse launched with Linkin Park's "Somewhere I Belong", without fanfare.
The early days of Fuse were very music intensive. They often indirectly bashed MTV for not airing music, with ads touting Fuse as the channel "where the music went."
In late 2005, they had a week of end-to-end music videos, paid for by Snapple.
