25 People React To Daft Punk Splitting Up After 28 Years

After 28 year, Daft Punk is splitting up. Though the split is hard for some to take, many funny people took to Twitter to crack jokes about the French duo who transformed Electronic Dance Music.

In case you didn’t know, Daft Punk made club and pop music with such a futuristic vibe, that Disney commissioned them to make the Tron: Legacy soundtrack in 2010. That’s how cool they were. There’s no other band that could have been tapped to write music that sounds like it was made for sentient robots but somehow still fun for humans to listen to.

The two musicians are nearly 50, and want to retire. There doesn’t seem to be any bad blood. They’re in the future now, and the future sucks. It was way more fun to imagine it in the 90s than it was to actually live through it. God bless them.
