    Daft Punk - Homework

    Year: 1997

    The duo that made it okay to like "techno," Daft Punk had their breakthrough on 2001's Discovery (and, really, their 2006 tour and subsequent Alive), but everyone who knows anything knows that Homework is the one to love. It's a perfect marriage between dance music and organic instruments, combining house rhythms with funk bass, R&B vocals, and a ton of experimentation. It was the last album the French duo released before they became the superstar mystery duo we know Daft Punk as today, and if you pick "One More Time" over "Around The World" you're probably not very good at being a hipster.
