Electronic body music (mainly known by its acronym EBM) is a music genre that combines elements of industrial music and electronic dance music. The modern usage of the term was originally coined by the Belgian group, Front 242.
Emerging in the early-to-mid 1980s, the genre's early influences range from the industrial music of the time (Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire), European electropunk (DAF, Liaisons Dangereuses, Portion Control) and straight-ahead pop-oriented electronic music (Kraftwerk).
