Our 12 favourite reactions to the news of Daft Punk’s break-up
After 28 years of providing absolute bangers like ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger’ and ‘Get Lucky’, French electronic duo, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter – better known as Daft Punk – are unplugging from the grid.
They announced the end of their project in the most Daft Punk way possible – with a stylish video.
Tributes poured in from those in and out of the music business.
Daft Punk have just announced they have officially called it quits after 28 years.
Genuine sadness. These guys will be musical legends forever. pic.twitter.com/7CDysJdd6L

Not all heroes wear helmets but some of our favorites do.
Thanks, Daft Punk 💚

Daft Punk broke up because they’re French and couldn’t smoke in the helmets

In conclusion –
daft punk should have secretly passed the name and the robot helmets to another duo, creating a tradition and lasting for centuries

There’s already a pair of volunteers.
Daft Punk give us the helmets and we’ll continue the legacy! 👍🏻 pic.twitter.com/XrS3BI1hrx
