Knowing Daft Punk, it could be another decade before they tour again. And it won't be with the pyramid. But for now, their music has already shown up in everything from club remixes to the pop charts -- thanks, of course, to Kanye West, whose hit single 'Stronger,' lifts the entire chorus of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger."
"Kanye asked us to use the sample and we were excited by the song," Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter tells Spinner. "We've always made music by sampling other people that we like or respect .. and we feel it's fair to give back, so things can come full circle."
But if there's one thing Daft Punk's live show has taught us, it's that circles sometimes don't matter -- it's all about triangles that light-up and flash to the beat.
