NME have stated that, "'The Beatles and Kraftwerk' may not have the ring of 'the Beatles and the Stones', but nonetheless, these are the two most important bands in music history", and their influence can be found in early 1980s synth-pop groups such as Gary Numan, Ultravox, John Foxx, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, The Human League, Depeche Mode, Visage, and Soft Cell. With Depeche Mode's composer Martin Gore saying, "for anyone of our generation involved in electronic music, Kraftwerk were the godfathers."
