The rules of the Daft Punk music establishment were openly scorned. They did not lead a social life, rarely gave interviews, wore masks at concerts, and did not even appear in video clips in principle. Visual images, however, became the hallmark of the group, and the French approached the clips with special care, selecting the best directors. The fact that the first two videos for Daft Punk were directed by Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry speaks volumes. The album "Discovery" formed the basis for the animated feature film "Interstella 5555", shot by the Japanese studio Toei Animation, and the most successful single from the album was the song "One More Time", for which Daft Punk even invited the vocalist of Romanthony. The song hit the top ten charts in several European countries, in Britain it became the second, and in the homeland of the group climbed to the top. The third disc, "Human After All", actually became the harbinger of the electronic wave of nu-rave. The sound became harder, and rock drive suddenly appeared in the dance tracks. On top of that, Guy-Manuel and Thomas took control of the visuals and began filming video clips with their own hands.
Daft Punk was nominated seven times for a Grammy, but the awards were unexpectedly brought to them not by the studio album, but by the live album "Alive 2007". The CD won Best Electronic Album and Harder Better Faster Stronger won Best Dance Recording. Not least was the fact that a sample from this track became the basis of Kanye West's hit "Stronger", and a year before receiving the award, Daft Punk unexpectedly showed up at the anniversary awards ceremony to perform this song with Kanye.
