Blondie's "Heart of Glass" Is More Punk Than Kanye

by Gary Pini

Though it's actually a new wave-disco song, this was one of the tracks that Debbie Harry performed on Monday night at the Met Ball for "PUNK: Chaos to Couture." (Read our review of the show here.) That's not to imply that Blondie shouldn't have been invited to the party. They were certainly more "punk" than Kanye, who's skirted screeching was pretty lame. "Heart of Glass" was on on the band's third album, Parallel Lines, and it stirred up a little controversy when it came out in 1978 because it was seen by many fans as a "sell out" to the disco fad.  Blondie will be touring in Europe all summer.
