  • Literal gods of Techno

    It would certainly seem so. As one of the very first truly, completely techno bands to be popularized, they paved the road for EDM music. Modern, newer EDM artists such as Deadmau5 or Skrillex have little to compare, and it’s quite clear that they take some sort of inspiration from the Robots. According to the Rolling Stone article and interview on the Daft Punk duo, after getting a custom synthesizer, Deadmau5 apparently ordered “the same one”. Their music manages to maintain a Futuristic feel, while filling you with nostalgia with the 70-90s. Their signature sound is loved by dance enthusiasts all around the world. While many feel their music can be repetitive, this usually is only the case for someone who hasn’t heard anything past Get Lucky, Around The World, and Harder Better Faster Stronger. Which are, all of course popular for a reason as they’re absolutely amazing. But the repetitivity is mostly due to the fact that it is indeed DANCE music. The lyrics tend to be much less important when associated with pop music. They aren’t Pop, they’re techno. EDM. Lyrics mean a lot less than the instrumentals and beat. Listen to Aerodynamic, for example! Not to mention, many music artists in the EDM scene wear Helmets or masks. Who was the first? Daft Punk, dude. They absolutely paved the road in the electronic music scene, showing that not all techno has to be simple things that you can make using any ipad or software. Daft punk have so many awards for a reason. They’re amazingly unique, their music is both jagged and futuristic, but smooth and jazzy all at once. They’re an influence to all future EDM musicians to pass and come. Definitely the gods of Techno music. For sure. In fact, looking at the ‘no’ side, most of the arguments against it is simply that there CAN’T be a best techno band. But there can, really. If fans agree on a certain one being the best. And generally, Elvis is called the KING of rock. That’s calling him the best, and no one objects. So let’s pretend that there CAN be a best Techno band, who are you going to pick. Skrillex, or literal Robots?

  • Yes Yes Yes

    Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb Daft da bomb

  • They paved the roads for EDM.

    Since Homework in 1997, Daft Punk has been making insanely good music. Call it what you want, you can't deny that they effectively pioneered an entire genre. That's pretty impressive if you ask me. Not to mention they never fell off. While they don't consistently release music, their 2013 Random Access Memories is an instant classic as well, proving that they still have it.

  • They're just DIFFERENT.

    Daft punk was the one that made techno amazing, it attracted people to listen to electronic music more. Even now, they are still listened, because the music never gets old. In fact, every album they create have completely different sounds. However, they manage to make it sound great so that everyone in the world knows that they have many other ways of creating good electronic music, not just electronic music that only sound same or alike. For example, Human After All and Discovery, both sound very good, but they sound completely different. There could be infinity many differences between the two, but as for today's electronic musicians they all sound practically the same. So there is a difference where you can make good music, but have the same applications between music that can be divided and create different tunes to create infinite combinations of different tunes. Daft Punk is just a musician, but the duo can do those different musics. Random Access Memories is my favourite album: it's a time travel to the 70's, and it's made with analog synthesizers and acoustic instruments. They always want to innovate, create new things. The other djs are always thinking how their songs could be successful, how they could reach number one on the Billboard...They're just DIFFERENT.

  • Obviously the best

    They revolutionised how we listen to music, and how it's made. Nowadays Justin bieber can't even Singh, and it's probably the most famous person in the world. Electronic music is the amount of the future, which they used all the way back in '97. Musical visionaries, the best at their game.

  • Daft Punk are definitive electro//techno music gods

    I first got into them when I heard the Tron Legacy OST and then I got into their other songs and basically bought all their albums. Daft Punk are amazing. Unlike anything we've heard before. Electro bands to this day can't even amount to a single modicum of Daft Punk's music. Skrillex garbage...

  • DAFT PUNK baby

    Yes!!Yup! Because they are very good and very important in the history of electronic music! THEY ARE VERY GOOD! Nowadays, you think in Avicii, Skrillex, but Daft Punk rocks! Many people opined without hearing a one song of them, just listen a one song, just a one song, to see how you change your opinion!

  • Same beat over and over

    Sorry daft punk.. But when you say "around the world" over 500x its gets really old…. I think you should follow in the footsteps of Deadmau5, tiesto, and Hardwell….. But over all i really like your beats but please.. With a little bit more BANG… i really like "harder better faster strong"r though

  • Daft Punk is not the best techno band ever.

    Daft Punk is not the best techno band ever. However, they have done a lot to put the genre of techno out onto the mainstream. Many people now listen to techno and their related genres because of all the songs that Daft Punk has put together. They have allowed for many more people to be successful in the industry.

  • There is no such thing.

    Daft Punk is not the best techno band ever because there is no such thing as the best techno band ever. Music is entirely subjective. You can't say any one band is better than another because no one person's taste is more valid than another. You can't name a "best techno band."

  • I don't think so

    How can one possibly say one band is better than another? Isn't it all about personal taste and what one person may like? Daft Punk is a great techno band, of course. But who has the right to say what is the best or what isn't? I personally don't feel that they are the best techno band ever.

  • No, I don't think so

    How can you say any band is the best ever? Everyone has their own personal taste and style, so one person may agree with this but another might not. I can fully agree that Daft Punk is ONE of the best techno bands ever, but definitely not the best ever.
