The Breakup of Daft Punk

The Breakup of Daft Punk

Edric W., Staff Writer

     On February 22, 2021, the world waved goodbye to the legendary EDM(Electronic Dance Music) creators Daft Punk 28 years after the duo started releasing their music. The duo announced their retirement in an 8-minute YouTube video, titled Epilogue. In the video, one of the members stops walking, and when his partner turns around to look at him, he takes off his “Daft Punk” bomber jacket, allowing his friend to turn on what appears to be a self-destruct switch. As the timer counts down from 60, he walks away from his friend in the direction he came from, the timer clicking the whole time. Once it reaches zero, he explodes, representing the end of the pairing. They released their final album in 2013, and have been very inactive ever since. However, this legendary duo finally called it quits and retired. From now on, the only memories of Daft Punk we will have are their past albums. Goodbye, Daft Punk, you will be missed.
