    Kraftwerk disowning their early work seems completely idiotic considering all the brilliance and innovation happened in those early albums... Everything post Autobahn is just this cold, banal wave of uninteresting synth bullshit which alot of very awkward white people love to praise.

    The Beatles had a negative effect on the world. At least Kraftwerk dressed neat, didn't do drugs or hang around with dirty hippies and had self-respect. [2] down with Useful Idiots

    The reason why people are saying that Kraftwerk is "more important than the Beatles" is because Kraftwerk was so ahead of their time in regards to electronic music. In the 1980s, nobody was creating music like them, so they set the foundation for electronic music. However, I personally think the phrase "more important than the Beatles" is a bit of an exaggeration, even though i personally enjoy Kraftwerk more than the Beatles.

    Although I much prefer them to the Beatles they are both equally as important, nonsensical argument
