     Mark Vidler of U.K. based "Go Home Productions" created the mash-up of the Doors 1970's single, "Riders On The Storm" and Blondie's "Rapture" in January 2004. Originally an unauthorised "Bootleg" recording, the track was well received by Chris Stein and Deborah Harry, who encouraged an official release of the song. After more than a year of legal wrangling, management teams for both Blondie and the Doors gave the green light and "Rapture Riders" became a legally distributed single, appearing on the greatest hits album, "Sound & Vision".
