Kraftwerk -The Robots

Image hosting by Photobucket

How can you NOT love Kraftwerk? Afrika Bambaataa sampled them for the pivotal breakbeat masterpiece "Planet Rock", they turned down Michael Jackson for a remix in the 80's, and they are quoted as saying their inspiration is "nothing". These pioneers of electronic music intentionally stayed out of the sun and focused on a look they called "the man machine". And this is their 1977 video where they pretend to be robots, and do a pretty convincing job. Even though I hate robots, I love these guys way more..
