Blondie rates highly as the single most popular and successful group toemerge from the 1970s New York City punk/New Wave music scene. Blondiewas founded by singer/songwriter 'Debbie Harry' and guitarist'Chris Stein (I)' in 1974. Drummer 'Clem Burke (I)' , bassplayer 'Gary Valentine (II)' and keyboardist 'Jimmy Destri' joined the band in 1975. Blondie started out by performing in suchnoted New York City underground club venues as CBGB's, Max's KansasCity (Harry had previously worked at this place as a waitress), andClub 51.

The band released their self-titled debut album in 1976. Theirsecond album "Plastic Letters" followed in 1977; the song "Denis" was a#2 hit in England. Blondie achieved even greater success with their third album "ParallelLines" in 1978; the excellent disco song "Heart of Glass" was a #1 hiton the US and UK radio charts alike and sold over a million copies. Thealbum went on to sell over twenty million copies worldwide. The punchy"One Way or Another" reached #24 on the US Billboard charts and thecharming "Sunday Girl" was a #1 hit in Britain.

Blondie enjoyed threemore US #1 radio hits in steady succession in the early 1980s: therousing "Call Me" (this song was featured as the opening credits tunefor the film American Gigolo (1980) ), the catchy calypso number"The Tide is High", and the funky proto-rap offering "Rapture". Alas,the group was forced to break up in 1982 because of the failure oftheir ill-received sixth album "The Hunter" and Stein being diagnosedwith the rare severe illness pemphigus. In 1997, Blondie got back together and went on an international tour in1998. In 1999, the band released their seventh album "No Exit". Thesong "Maria" was a #1 hit in England (this single was the sixth Blondiesong to reach the #1 top spot in Britain).

This comeback album wasfollowed by "The Curse of Blondie" in 2003. Blondie's songs have beenfeatured on the soundtracks to numerous films that include The Heartbreak Kid (2007) , New York Minute (2004/I) , Mean Girls (2004) , Monster (2003) , Bend It Like Beckham (2002) , Coyote Ugly (2000) , 54 (1998) , Donnie Brasco (1997) , A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) , Summer School (1987) , The Last American Virgin (1982) , Just Before Dawn (1981) , Endless Love (1981) , Roadie (1980) and Little Darlings (1980) .
