Then & Now

 

Inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, Blondie emerged as one of the great pop icons of New York's celebrated late '70s new wave punk scene by defying easy categorization. They wrote great rock hooks and brilliant, ironic lyrics. The band sometimes incorporated pop, disco, reggae, and rap into their musical style. They had the hippest clothes and the coolest hair. Worldwide record sales for Blondie exceed 40 million. The newest album, Panic of Girls was released September 13, 2011. Let's take a journey back and check out their awesome music videos.
