From the Wikipedia entry:

"Atomic" was the third single from the 1979 album Eat to the Beat by Blondie. It was written by Debbie Harry and Jimmy Destri and the track was produced by Mike Chapman

The song was produced as a mixture of new wave and disco which had proven to be so successful in their #1 hit from earlier in 1979, "Heart of Glass." The guitar riff is directly influenced by the one in the Neil Diamond song "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon."
