Blondie - Atomic


On this date in 1980, Blondie released their sixteenth single, "Atomic". It was backed by "Die Young, Stay Pretty". Both tracks appeared on their fourth album, Eat To The Beat, though the A side of the single was a re-mixed version. The 12 inch version included the additional live track, "Heroes", a non-LP track which was added to Eat To The Beat as a bonus on a subsequent CD re-release. The single reached the #1 spot on the U.K. singles chart and the #39 spot on the U.S. singles chart. The New York punk/new wave band disbanded in 1982 but re-formed in 1998 and continue to perform and record.
