  1. You know, I love Daft Punk, and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger is one of my favorite songs, but it’s almost a decade old. What the hell, Grammys? Are you implying that there’s been absolutely no good dance/synth music produced in the last decade? Well, at least Daft Punk’s finally getting their due. It only took eight years.

  2. Dawn – Daft Punk released a live version in 2007, which was what qualified for the Grammy.

    Sort of lame – but that’s how the Grammies roll.

  3. Daft Punk’s remix of Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger is an excellent remix! Even though its a remix of their own song, it really shows absolute mastery of dance DJ techniques… I think they deserved the award, and viva club music!!

  4. Took forever for Daft Punk to win a grammy, I can't believe they lost to the Chemical Brothers in 2001 and in 2005.

  5. Great. Now I’ve got One More Time stuck in my head again. Happens at least once a week! Daft-a Punk-a! I’m-a keel-a you dead-a!
