15 Pictures Of Daft Punk Without Helmets On [PHOTOS]
Daft Punk made a solid comeback in 2013 with their hit song ‘Get Lucky’ featured on their 4th studio album ‘Random Access Memories.’ The french duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have been making critically-acclaimed music since the mid-90s, but rarely have been seen without their signature “robot helmets” on.
In many interviews Daft Punk has said that the reason behind their disguises has everything to do with them wanting the focus to be on the music, and not who they are as the stars who make it. Bangalter explains:
We don’t believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise.
With all the Daft Punk hype in 2013, many have dug deep to find any and everything about the robots, including photos of the duo sans masks. Recently, The Knocks caught some heat for tweeting (and quickly deleting) a recent photo of Daft Punk unmasked af the Columbia offices. Of course, on the internet nothing is really deleted and the photo spread like wildfire.
