There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Blitz, British punk band

Blitz were a British punk band who had enjoyed success in the indie charts in the early 1980’s. They were often lumped in with bands such as Cockney Rejects; however, with the release of the “New Age” single and their second album Second Empire Justice, Blitz shifted from their punk roots to a much more and - sound. They came from New Mills in Derbyshire and were enthusiastically championed by music journalist Garry Bushell.

2) Blitz, Brazilian 80s rock band.

Blitz was the first Brazilian rock band to achieve mainstream success and to have hit singles (Você não soube me amar, A dois passos do paraíso, Ana Maria (biquíni de bolinha amarelinha tão pequenininho)) kick-starting the movement the 1980s boom that would later be called “BRock”[1].

Its “classic” (first) formation included Evandro Mesquita (voice), Lobão(drums), later Roberto “Juba” Gurgel), Antônio Pedro Fortuna (bass, formerly with Os Mutantes and Lulu Santos), William Forghieri (keyboards) and Fernanda Abreu and Márcia Bulcão (backing vocals).

In 1982, the first compact, “Você Não Soube Me Amar”, achieved a huge success, followed by the album “As Aventuras da Blitz”. Due to its success among children, they even publish a comic book.

Still in 1982 they recorded their first album “Você não soube me amar”, an immediate success with fourteen songs and a comics-like design. The logo resembles that of X-Men comics.
