* BunnyEarsLawyer / ReclusiveArtist: They rarely give interviews. They usually use dummies or custom-made robots for promo photo shoots instead of themselves. All we know about their studio is its name. They are also extremely hard to contact. For example, their studio telephone didn't have a ringer because they considered it "noise pollution" during recording. If you really wanted to contact them they would instruct you to call precisely at a certain time, and Ralf Hütter would answer the call himself even though there was no phone ring.

They are directly responsible for the existence of Dance music, from Techno, {{Industrial}} and EBM to SynthPop and even early Hip-Hop.

I'd like to take her home that's understood,\\
She plays hard to get, she smiles from time to time,\\
