Daft Punk without helmets: What do Daft Punk really look like?

Imagine Daft Punk without helmets? Virtually every public appearance the group (made up of two men) has made has been in some sort of robot costume leaving fans to wonder what's underneath. On Jan. 27, Buzzfeed posted some photos of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo to kill that curiosity straight away.

While some people really like the obscurity, others were really curious about the guys behind the music. Since Daft Punk had such a huge night at the Grammy's, curiosity really peaked. Sure, you can Google "Daft Punk" but many of the photos listed aren't really them. These dudes are super careful about exposing themselves, so to speak.

Knowing what Daft Punk look like without helmets doesn't necessarily change people's feelings about them. They still make great music and they are a very talented duo. They just don't want their faces associated with their music -- because it's not about physical looks -- it's about creativity. At least, that's how they sort of explain in.

"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," explained Bangalter in an interview (via Buzzfeed).
