Daft Punk is one of the most popular electronic bands ever (along with Music/{{Kraftwerk}}, Music/YellowMagicOrchestra and a few others). Formed in 1993 by Frenchmen Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the duo have [[TropeCodifier popularized French house music and established many of its elements]], to the point where they are sometimes mistakenly credited as having created the genre. Nevertheless, Daft Punk's work definitely furthered the acceptance of electronic music in mainstream culture.

* BerserkButton: In a meta example, other dance music artists often get annoyed when their music is compared to that of Daft Punk's, as a result of the general audience's SmallReferencePools. Music/{{deadmau5}} has publicly stated that he has shied away from using electric pianos in his work for fear of being misinterpreted as ripping off Daft Punk, while Morgan Page and Wolfgang Gartner have aired similar grievances over Twitter.

* TheFaceless: The duo are famous for their refusal to allow ANYONE to see their true faces. Even before the started wearing their robot helmets, when they were just two French Guys™ during their first tour, they were described as "incredibly shy," which might have something to do with the helmets.

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 Music/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.
