Blondie & Devo

While they've never been amorously linked, it's romantic to think of Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh and Blondie's Deborah Harry as the first couple of American New Wave: He, the Midwestern dork who made extraterrestrial compu-geekiness cool; she, the ultra-chic jaw-dropper who defied her "shut up and just look hot" looks by exhibiting phenomenal performing talent. That first couple is 62 and 67 now, old enough to collect their AARP cards, buy a fifth wheel, and tour the country. They're doing that, with a catch: Wherever they stop, they play a rock show before thousands of adoring fans. MIKE SEELY
