Kraftwerk ("power plant" in English) is an electronic band founded in 1970 in Düsseldorf, Germany. They pioneered electronic music in the 70s and are considered one of the most important and influential bands of their genre, often described as "the godfathers of electronic music". Kraftwerk's sound is minimalistic and strictly electronic; it combines driving, repetitive rhythms with catchy melodies and vocals usually sung through a vocoder.

The concept album belongs to the late 1960s as a cultural phenomenon, a time of wilful excess in sound, thought and ego. Kraftwerk made concept albums, too, although theirs were set and fixed on more minimal lines. Take this 22-minute journey from door slam and accelerator roar – a device echoed in Roxy Music’s Love Is the Drug a year later – through a largely blissful, but occasionally sinister, on-the-road reverie. Autobahn’s genius lies in its simplicity. Kraftwerk’s explorations of German identity and the idea of Europe were always interesting, especially at a time when the iron curtain hung heavily. This was the title track of an album that began with a sweet major-key ditty called Europe Endless, and ended with its reprise, Endless Endless, both projecting from the speakers like beacons of hope (unless you equated the titles with older visions of empire). This track felt different.
