"The Robots" (originally Die Roboter) is a single by the influential German electronic music pioneers, Kraftwerk, released in 1978. The single and its B-side, "Spacelab", both appeared on the band's seventh album, The Man-Machine. However, the songs as they appear on the single were scaled down into shorter versions.

Influence

The rippling 16th-note synth lick that repeats throughout the song song was sampled by dance act Twenty 4 Seven's 1990 single "I Can't Stand It!" The influence of this later single's success on the re-release the following year of "The Robots" has not been measured.
