Blondie was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, and the band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s. In 1982 the band broke up, but was re-formed in 1997, achieving renewed success and a number one single in the United Kingdom with "Maria" in 1999, exactly 20 years after their first UK No.1 single ("Heart of Glass").


Blondie’s impact is greater than the sum of its record sales: Debbie Harry’s persona, and the band’s boundary-pushing pop, has shaped the look and sound of many chart-topping female artists who followed in the last three decades. Lady Gaga declared her fandom in a 2011 interview with Harry for Harper’s Bazaar. But, as Harry has put it, “I can’t really say we are the chicken or the egg, the birth of our kind of music. You end up putting your own sort of interpretation on the music you’ve heard and learned from, and it’s an ongoing process. And that’s in all the arts, the layering, a folding-over of styles. It’s what gives it that beautiful depth.”
