Daft Punk exposed as human beings

Daft Punk


I haven't been this excited since KISS took off their makeup (or better yet, when they put it back on -- that was a dark era in our nation's history).

Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have been sticklers for not letting their faces be seen since the duo started wearing helmets in 2001. The recent cover story in Rolling Stone had an older unmasked photo of the pair, but the Internet has produced a new blurry snapshot of the pair, seen above.

Yep. They're playing champagne pong at Columbia Records. Fellow EDM artist The Knocks leaked the picture and tried to take it back, but there are no do-overs in cyberspace.  The Onion's AV Club, Gawker and plenty of others were more than willing to spread the photo. And now we have too.

I guess you could say they're Human After All.

Now that they have gotten rid of their masks we only have to get them to get rid of their "music".

Good for you.

Posting a picture the subject obviously did not want posted is great journalism. It was ok, because they are musicians, so the public has a right to know. Otherwise journalists would have to go out and report news.

Daft is right.

I feel like Daft Punk is one of those groups that sucks but are popular because people decided they should be popular even though they dislike their music; similar to Vampire Weekend.
