Blondie along with The Ramones was initially an underground rock act in New York City before achieving massive success and notoriety around 1977. Precursors of a new rock genre, New Wave, Blondie was a very versatile group which offered sounds reminiscent of rock, reggae, disco, and punk. It's male members were famous, but not as famous as its lead singer, Debbie Harry. In fact some people thought Blondie consisted of only Debbie Harry.
