Blondie Takes Inspiration From LMFAO

| Filed under: Music MinuteLMFAO


Ha! So awesome!

Blondie, one of the best bands of the '70s and '80s, has revealed their inspiration for their upcoming album Panic of Girls and it's pretty out there!

The band is looking to create a "current" sound similar to the Party Rock band LMFAO. They even want to have a wild crazy dance video similar to LMFAO's style!

Lead singer Debbie Harry says:

"'One of the things I would like to do before I'm too old to do it - which could be very soon - is a video where I do a lot of dancing like LMFAO. That is my great ambition. I'm deeply involved with being current, and that's the most important thing to me right now."

Guitarist Chris Stein agrees. He says, "That video is one of the best dance videos I've ever seen. Their dancing is so tight."

Known for their catchy pop dance songs, LMFAO seems like an unlikely source of inspiration, but actually, we can totally imagine the two groups merging and making amazingly catchy and fun music together. As for Blondie's new album, their first in eight years, Panic of Girls will be released in September. Sooo excited!

    If this was someone else doing the same thing as Lady GaGa you wouldn't be calling it an inspiration you would be calling it copying and it would be a travesty!! hypocrite!

    I don't see the big deal with LMFAO. Their music isn't anything special, it's mostly generic, and I just wish that they at least take showers….

    Well, they might want to go back to the studio before the album is released in the US and rerecord most of it. There are a couple of standout danceable tracks with a new wave feel, but the majority of the album sounds like they were trying to go for rasta inspired songs like The Tide is High….

    I'd love to see that. LIfe is short. Go for it. LMFAO and others have also indirectly benefited from your band's lead. Shake it UP!
