Things start with "Sugar on the Side" which is a latin rocker featured on their 2013 album Ghosts of Download. The pre-recorded male vocals are from Colombian band Systema Solar, who collaborated on the album track. Debbie Harrie struts and the band flexes their new wave rock muscle.
In the next segment, Jon Stewart did a quick interview where the band talked about working together for 40 years and how their process has changed due to digital recording technology. This was followed by their hit song from 1978, "One Way or Another." Blondie showed they can still rock and tear up a good punk pop tune. Due to timing on the TV show, "One Way or Another" was cut off, but they did include the full song as a web exclusive:

In addition, The Daily Show did a long feature on the newsworth event of Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator. Jessica Williams did a funny bit about how the footage is not real, with a little help from Blondie's Debbie Harry:
