Daft Punk Net Worth Is $60 Million Each
Famed for their DJ skills and musical prowess, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are the two members of Daft Punk. During the 1990s, Daft Punk obtained a following through the French House movement. They combined aspects of synthopop to create songs that became the epitome of the French House scene. During this time period, the duo was managed by Pedro Winter. Some of the influences on the early work of the career includes the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
Through their various albums and projects, both members have been able to accumulate a net worth of $60 million each. One of their songs, “Get Lucky”, managed to hit the top spot on the United Kingdom charts for a total of five months. On Spotify, this song was the most streamed in the site's entire history. Much of their net worth comes from album sales, royalties, merchandise and licensing fees. Originally, the two members of Daft Punk were part of a group called Darlin'. They had met in 1987 when they were going to the Lycee Carnot High School in France. Before long, this group disbanded and the duo set out on their own. Their debut album, Homework, was released in 1997 and was well-received by critics.
Following this release, the album, Discovery, was released in 2001. This new album was a major success and had songs like “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and “One More Time”. They also released Human After All in 2005. From 2006 to 2007, Daft Punk went on tour and won a Grammy for Alive 2007. Later, they created a film score for Tron: Legacy. Known for having complex live shows, Daft Punk makes use of visuals and story telling for their productions. They occasionally use disguises in public appearances and very seldom grant interviews.
