Daft Punk got their name from a bad review!

French dance duo Daft Punk started out as Darlin’, but changed the name after a Melody Maker review of their debut album called it “a daft punky thrash”.

This was 1992, and it would take until 1997 before their debut album under the name Daft Punk was released. Two notable tunes came on this release, Around The World and Da Funk.

Two years later, they assumed robot personas, wearing helmets to disguise their appearance, and did very little media work. Best idea ever if you ask me!

The follow-up came in 2001, with two more tunes to make it big in One More Time, and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The latter would be sampled by Kanye West for his tune Stronger in 2007.

Daft Punk’s third album didn’t do as well as the previous two. Next, they made a film called Electroma, before embarking on extensive touring resulting in a well-received live album before they went back to film by composing the music for Tron.

Their biggest success was yet to come in 2013 with the lead single Get Lucky from the album Random Access Memories. The tune featured Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.

Get Lucky is the 4th most played song between 2010-2020 in the U.K. Above it we find only Moves Like Jagger, Rolling In The Deep, and Happy.
