Kraftwerk: Trans-Europe Express

The pioneering German electronic outfit Kraftwerk casts a shadow looming over everything from synth pop to techno to hip-hop to the entire city of Detroit, and their songs have been sampled by everyone from Madlib to Coldplay.

"Trans-Europe Express" is Kraftwerk at its most quintessential. It's the track that best combines their cold, dark, and downright uninviting sounds with their sensibilities towards pop song structures. I can listen to it a million times and it will never gets old.
