Everybody in America loves Daft Punk now, but back in 2007, many casual music fans had absolutely no idea who they were. That changed when Kanye sampled their 2001 song "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" on his hit single "Stronger." The song shot to Number One, and Daft Punk even made a rare TV appearance to play it with him at the 2008 Grammys. It was the beginning of the group's path to mainstream success.
"Stronger" is one of Kanye's most radio-friendly songs, but it wasn't strong enough to survive a dreadful acoustic rendition by Alison Williams on a recent episode of Girls. After that debacle, it's hard to ever hear the song in the same light.
