Critical love isn’t going to be an issue for Daft Punk as they have had plenty of it through their career.  What will be the question is whether the Hall will ever consider a House band as Hall worthy.  If they do, Daft Punk is a reasonable choice for induction.  They are beloved in the Dance world and with the amount of success they had, their Hall resume makes an interesting debate.

It seems like 2019 is my year for my favorite bands. Daft Punk is the only thing out of France I have ever rooted for. Their best/most underrated song is 2003's Something About Us, which I listen to probably weekly on my iPod.

3. The argument that they never wrote anything original, just repackaged other people's grooves. This is the steroids argument that the Rock Hall will face in the coming years.
