Earlier this week we gave you a roundup of Thomas and Guy-Manuel‘s most groundbreaking videos. Now head below to hear Daft Punk reinterpreted.
Kanye West, “Stronger”: This is perhaps the most famous example of an artist borrowing a beat (and, if we’re being honest, chorus) from Daft Punk. West’s 2007 Graduation single apes the French band’s “Harder Better Faster Stronger,” off their 2001 album Discovery, a buoyantly bouncy electro number that sounds much more aggressive on West’s version. Of course, the song has found itself again repurposed in will.i.am’s new single “#thatPOWER,” on which Justin Bieber tries to replicate the Daft Punk line by chanting “bigger better stronger power” (see what he did there?). When it comes to ripping off this particular song we’re #TeamKanye.
