�Touch It� (2006)
Cribbing the robot-voice hook from �Technologic,� Busta�s club anthem took it to number 2 on the U.S. rap chart. Then Missy Elliott referenced it in the inevitable onslaught of remixes.
West swiped not only the hook from Discovery�s �Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger� but Daft Punk�s sound, and the DP robots cameo in the video. And for reason we can�t quite explain, West raps, �Heard they�d do anything for a Klondike / Well, I�d do anything for a blond dyke.�
FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS
�Humans Are Dead� (2007)
In the pilot episode of their cult HBO comedy series, the hapless New Zealand electro-folk duo attempt to make a music video as cool space-age robots �like Daft Punk.� Their manager, Murray, gives them chintzy cardboard box suits instead. Total buzz kill.
