From early anthems to collaboration works, here are some of the greatest music done by the iconic duo
Daft Punk, regarded as among the defining dance floor acts, ended their 28-year music career as they announced their split last Monday, Feb. 15, 2021.
The masked French EDM artists, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, made it official with the release of an eight-minute clip dubbed “Epilogue,” inspired by their 2006 film “Electrona,” depicting one of the robots setting the other to self-destruct mode.
Fans all over the world are devastated by the news. Who can blame them? Daft Punk’s foot-stomping beats and their stylized videos have contributed in many ways to how we view and listen to electronic music today.
To celebrate their legacy, let’s look back on some of Daft Punk’s revolutionary works that influenced the music charts and pop culture.

The duo’s 2017 performance at the Grammys with Canadian singer The Weeknd was among Daft Punk’s last appearances.
