* FunPersonified: As can be seen in the quote above, they take the enjoyment of their fans very seriously. Their iconic robot look is a way for fans to immerse themselves into the music.
** When they finally agreed to perform at Coachella, they kept on asking for more of their fee in advance to build the now iconic pyramid set.[[note]]10% is a usually a good advance even for a highly sought after artist. Daft Punk were getting '''$300,000''' and this wasn't even close to enough[[/note]]

Daft's third album, 2005's ''Human After All'', was a reductive dance-rock album that [[BrokenBase polarized critics and audiences alike]] with its brash, distorted compositions. Their art film Film/DaftPunksElectroma, about two robots attempting to find acceptance by disguising themselves as humans, shortly followed. Their second live album, ''Alive 2007'', recontextualized their first three albums by heading deep into mashup territory, which not only revitalized critical opinion of ''Human After All'', but provided a never-before-seen stage show consisting of a [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=Pujy2kVECZk massive glowing pyramid]] surrounded by [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=KBQ3oVcV4YE a blinding array of lasers and neon lights]] -- a template used since by many musicians from all genres.

Also notable are several contributions that are often overlooked by casual observers. Thomas Bangalter has produced many dance recordings under his own name and aliases, including the supergroup Stardust, which scored an international hit with "Music Sounds Better with You". He is friends with film director Creator/GasparNoe, creating the film scores for ''{{Film/Irreversible}}'' and ''Film/EnterTheVoid''. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo produced Music/{{Kavinsky}}'s hit song "Nightcall", as well as Sebastien Tellier's album ''Sexuality''. Though shy on producing for other artists for the majority of their careers, Daft Punk did contribute to four songs on KanyeWest's 2013 album ''Yeezus'', as well as provide vocals to Pharrell Williams' single "Gust of Wind". The duo have also contributed eleven mixes for the ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' SpinOff, ''VideoGame/DJHero'', as well as being playable characters in the latter.

** Notable examples include Breakwater on "Robot Rock", BillyJoel on "High Fidelity" and "Fresh", Barry Manilow on "Superheroes", and lots of other 70s disco, funk, R&B, and soul artists. The most high-profile case of Daft Punk themselves being sampled is probably Music/KanyeWest's "Stronger". "Robot Rock" is also a very popular track for up-and-coming rap talent to freestyle over, as well.

Daft Punk were tapped by {{Disney}} to provide the score to ''Film/TronLegacy''. Their score, evocative of electronic music of the 70s and 80s, was made in line with (and as a tribute to) Wendy Carlos' original score for ''{{Film/Tron}}''. Their fourth album, ''Random Access Memories'', was released in 2013 and was Daft Punk's love letter to the soul, funk and R&B albums from the 70s and 80s that they grew up on. The band worked closely with their longtime heroes, including disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder, singer-songwriter Paul Williams, {{Music/Chic}} guitarist/songwriter Nile Rodgers, and several internationally renowned musicians and session players, like Nathan East and John "J.R." Robinson. The album gave Daft Punk five Grammy awards in 2014, including Album of the Year and Record of the year for the album's lead single "Get Lucky", giving them seven total Grammys.
