Electronic dance music duo Daft Punk announced that they were calling it quits on Monday, 22 February, after 28 long years. Sending shock waves across the world and amongst their fans, Daft Punk released their final video announcing the split and aptly titled 'Epilogue'. The Parisian duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, came together in 1993 and over the course of years defined the French touch style of house music. 

Daft Punk also collaborated with several artists like The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and Kanye West among many others. It was their debut album, Homework, that brought them under the spotlight and is considered a landmark in dance music. In recent times, their retro-disco single Get Lucky, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, went on to become a worldwide hit. The band's classic singles like  “Around the World” and “Da Funk" were a landmark in the dance music scene. 

In 2007, their album Alive won the duo a Grammy award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Daft Punk's longtime publicist confirmed their split. For the same, Daft Punk's final video features them in their trademark helmets walking together, until one of them slows down while the other still keeps walking. 

The video has already raked in 10 million views with fans pouring in love and admiration for the duo. One fan wrote, "this is sad as hell. they had such an influence on a lot new music and they had such a memorable run. damn i used to love these guys. they’ve inspired a lot of people including myself to make music." 

Another one wrote, "It’s hurts to say goodbye to the music and artist who influenced me through my life. I lost linkin park and now Daft Punk is retiring when I never even got a chance to seen them live. But I’m thankful for them keeping me busy during my college life (sic)."
