French Army Marching Band Performs Daft Punk Medley for Bastille Day

French Army Marching Band Performs Daft Punk Medley for Bastille Day

A marching military band performed classical pieces including a tribute to the city of Nice, struck previous year by a terror attack, and "Nissa La Bella", according to The Local, before bursting into a melody of hits by native electronic duo Daft Punk.

On Friday, a French military marching band celebrated Bastille Day with arrangements of the group's hits, including the Grammy-winning 2013 single "Get Lucky".

It's somewhat fitting the music of Daft Punk would close out the Bastille Day celebration. And we've got to say, they did a pretty great job with songs like "Get Lucky" and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger".
