Kraftwerk are a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1969 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They were pioneers of electronic music and also became very popular. The group began as part of West Germany's experimental Krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including drum machines, synthesizers and vocoders. Wolfgang Flür joined the band in 1974 and Karl Bartos in 1975, expanding the band to a four piece.
Their albums include Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), and Computer World (1981) as well as many other EPs and live records. In 2021 they released the Remixes album.
