Blondie last night performed a cover of Beastie Boys' '(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!) at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas. Click above to watch their performance.

Blondie were honoured with the Godlike Genius accolade at last night's (February 26) ceremony, performing a set which included classic hits new material alongside the cover.

Debbie Harry and her bandmates accepted their award from Best Solo Artist winner Lily Allen. Collecting their gong, Debbie Harry said: "Hey hey! Thank you NME. I'm very happy to be here tonight." Guitarist Chris Stein said: "Thank you guys. Back in the old days, we had an adversarial relationship with NME. They used to rake us over the coals. But Karl Marx once told me there's no such thing as bad publicity."

Blondie played:

'One Way Or Another'
'A Rose By Any Name'
'Atomic'
'Mile High'
'Rapture'/'(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)!'
'Sugar On The Side'
'Call Me'
'Heart Of Glass'
