"Human After All" is a song by electronic music duo Daft Punk. It is the title track from their third studio album, Human After All, and the third single from the album, released on 21 October 2005. The single release includes remixes of the song which appeared in the album Human After All: Remixes.[1] "Human After All" peaked at number 93 on the French Singles Chart.

Background[edit]

"Human After All" is the only single from the album released without an accompanying music video. Daft Punk had originally set to make a video, but it eventually became the feature film Daft Punk's Electroma co-written and directed by the duo.[2]

The start of the song was shot with the Daft Punk duo driving on sections of C.A-14 highway near Red Rock Canyon State park near the intersection of C.A-14 and Abbott Drive. Further continuing to Driving along U.S-395 North, they end up in a town where they notice other people with masks. The scenes in this town were shot at Independence, CA.[citation needed]

Daft Punk produced the Teriyaki Boyz song "HeartBreaker", which features elements of "Human After All".[3] MTV Australia used the coda of "Human After All" in its "coming up" section of their channel format.[citation needed] A remixed version of the song made an appearance in the video game DJ Hero 2.[4]

On the album Alive 2007, "Human After All" appears with the track "Superheroes" from the album Discovery (2001) and "Rock 'N Roll" from Homework (1997). The song also appeared on the encore on the bonus disc of Alive 2007, mixed along with Together's eponymous song, a reprise of "One More Time" from Discovery and Stardust's song "Music Sounds Better with You".[5]
