Wouldn't it be nice if the hall adds a band like Daft Punk. Even though their more Synthpop, they'll always have a distinct melody to them And their video's: popular. Let's vote them in, so I can be happy

THEYRE NOT EVEN A REAL BAND! THEYRE A BUNCH OF CARTOON CRAP. NOT A BAD THING IF YOURE 35, LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS, WATCH DRAGONBALL Z, AND GO TO A STAR WARS CONVENTION EVERY YEAR!!!!!!!

i'm a fan of electronic/dance, and even i'd say no. look to the 80's to see all the artists they've ripped off

To the guy who said they're a cartoon, I'm sure he's thinking of Interstella 5555, which was basically an afterthought put into production to the tune of an album they had already written and released. As for the rip-off claim, I know their biggest influence was probably Giorgio Moroder's electronica, but I haven't heard any claims about them directly ripping off anyone. If they have, it's worth considering, but I think they still fit the influence bill well enough to be considered.

if the hall is this biased against hip-hop/rap it can't be expected to be much different for electronic, no matter how deserving the artists

See the Kraftwerk blog.

Err, actually, I was talking about artists like Giorgio Moroder, who have a HEAVY influence on Daft Punk.

What's wrong with influence? Nothing.

Typing your opinion in all caps doesn't express it any better. As a matter of fact it hurts it.

Yes! Daft Punk will be looked at as one of the most influential bands of the 21st century when all is said and done.

They did the soundtrack for Disney's new "Tron Legacy" movie that's coming out in 2010.

Influence: They've had an influence on much of the dance acts, mostly house.

Let me be first to say I loathe dance music as much as I hate rap. Which is a lot. That said, Daft Punk has one or two songs that I like personally. They do have potential and are great compared to every other dance song I've heard (see LMFAO). So I say based purely on their popularity, talent, and influence, I say yes.

Daft Punk should totally be inducted into the hall of fame. And as for the person who said the stole Giorgio Moroder sound. He doesn't care! In Fact he is working with them on their next album. Discovery was the Sgt. Peppers of electronic music
Posted by Andrew on Friday, 08.31.12 @ 13:05pm
After Random Access Memories and the success it has had, it pretty much proves their staying power even into the 2010s.
Posted by SotN on Sunday, 11.24.13 @ 02:21am
It will be amazing if Daft Punk becomes one of the first/few house groups to inducted into the Hall of Fame. I agree with SotN, I think with the success of Random Access Memories they will probably have more success in the future. On top of that Discovery is an album that's changed trance/house/dance music for good.
Posted by Aaron Wolf on Saturday, 05.24.14 @ 19:20pm
Oh shoot I meant Homework , not Discovery. Well Discovery too, but mostly Homework.

Ehem.... kraftwerk.... kraftwerk.... kraftwerk.... fgs.... krftwrk....

After all of these years of constant success, I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't get inducted, lol. I'm pretty sure they're an instant lock, which is fantastic for DJ's and artists that deal with more electronic instruments and styles.

Waving the French flag into the hall is what I'm thinking... Absolutely influential on electronic music.

The problem is the hall has yet to induct acts like Kraftwerk, the Smiths, The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, and Nine Inch Nails. But I think the hall will induct Daft Punk
