'''Kraftwerk''' is a German electronic group based in Düsseldorf, Germany, noted for such songs as "Autobahn", "The Robots", and "Trans-Europe Express". Originating in the [[{{Krautrock}} highly experimental rock scene]] of 1970s WestGermany, they're practically the TropeMakers of ElectronicMusic in general, being among the very first groups to begin experimenting making music electronically, starting in the early '70s. They are directly responsible for the existence of modern electronic Dance music, from Techno, {{Industrial}} and EBM to SynthPop and even early Hip-Hop.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Perhaps at some point in the early to late Seventies, but as time went on their robot personas became less and less human. Case in point, [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/Xvi552hlt90/maxresdefault.jpg here's the 1978 robots]] and [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/FrX8HTMcYls/maxresdefault.jpg here's the robots from 1991's The Mix onwards.]]

** 2017's ''3D - The Catalog''release can be seen as an updated version of ''The Mix'', much longer (covering 8 of their albums) and with more re-recorded songs from their 3D live concerts.

* GreatestHitsAlbum: Subverted with ''The Mix.'' As the band did not simply want to release a vanilla compilation album, they recorded new version of their most popular songs, which also brought them up to speed with the then-current state of synthesizers.


Added DiffLines:

* UpdatedRerelease: ''The Mix'', which re-records some of the group's best known songs on what was then the most up-to-date synth technology.
