  • Daft Punk are two Frenchmen. Nobody knows who, exactly - but many believe it is Thierry Henry and Jean Reno.

  • The pair met at primary school, where they were the only two robots in their class.

  • There was originally a third member of the group - pictured here on the right. Or is it the left?

  • Before settling on the name Daft Punk, other monikers they considered were Silly Goth, Stupid Rocker and Bonkers Hip Hop Artist.

  • Without their helmets, Daft Punk protect their identity by wearing stupid glasses and hats. Here they are blending seamlessly into the Paris landscape.

  • Daft Punk's favourite movie is The Blues Brothers, on which they model all their outfits (apart from the helmets).

  • When not working as DJs, Daft Punk work as security men at Disney events.

  • Like the recipe for Coca Cola, nobody knows exactly how to replicate a Daft Punk helmet, despite numerous artists' impressions.

  • Daft Punk live together in a futuristic home just outside of Paris. Here they are rustling up an evening meal in their kitchen. Looks like something's burning, lads!

  • Their separate DJ names are 'That Bloke From Daft Punk' and 'The Other One From Daft Punk'. Here's 'That Bloke From Daft Punk'.
