Video Premiere Blondie ft. Joan Jett - Doom or Destiny

Icons, Blondie have released their 3rd Pollinator single "Doom Or Destiny" with a video featuring Debbie Harry's longtime friend, Joan Jett! Directed by Rob Roth the legendary band and former Runaways frontwoman take over the airwaves in a satirical look at the news in today's current overheating climate.

In a interview with Debbie Harry and Chris Stein had this to say about the latest video single - Harry said she wanted the video to comment on "the bizarre state of media and news in the current political 'idiocracy'" by addressing issues like "environmental collapse, fossil fuels, bee population decline, global warming, sexism, patriarchy, Trump and Russia, feminism, consumerism, the marketing of war and more."

Blondie guitarist Chris Stein – who co-wrote "Doom or Destiny" with Harry – likened the clip to "punk-style protest." "In trying times we try harder," he said. "Politics have become the new pop culture phenomena, but it seems the current landscape of music videos has so little to do with true protest or some kind of social message. It can be truthful, but irreverent, fun and funny."

Meanwhile, director Rob Roth hoped the visual would "represent a spectrum of female fierceness," calling the end product "a 'fuck you' to what's going on in the world and a call to arms for women everywhere."

A great song, great video and 2 iconic women of rock make "Doom or Destiny" a once in a lifetime situation for our current world situation.
