Okay, we have to admit… when Daft Punk gave that electrifying performance at the Grammys and went on stage multiple times to collect their trophies, we all wondered what the faces behind those helmets look like. Come to think of it, haven’t we ALWAYS wondered?
Well, no more pondering and conjecturing. The faces have been unmasked!
Here’s a rare video of the duo before they adopted the masks, way back in 1995 – when they were in their early 20s!

“We don’t believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise.” – Daft Punk
Masked or unmasked, we really hope to see them in India soon!
