Blondie

Blondie came out of the same fertile New York City rock scene of the mid-’70s that spawned the Ramones, Television, Talking Heads and other pre-punk, punk and post-punk legends. Led by singer Debbie Harry, the group played girl-group songs updated for street-toughened modern ears. After two albums of proto-New Wave, they hit the big time with their third, 1978′s ‘Parallel Lines,’ which included the No. 1 hit single ‘Heart of Glass.’ Over the next four years, Blondie placed three more songs at the top of the chart: ‘Call Me,’ ‘The Tide Is High’ and ‘Rapture.’ Along the way, the group adapted new sounds and attitudes. ‘Heart of Glass’ and ‘Call Me’ were disco hits, ‘The Tide Is High’ injected an island rhythm into its grooves and ‘Rapture’ was one of the first hip-hop songs to go mainstream. Blondie broke up in 1982 but got back together in 1999 for a series of albums and tours.
