Which dance-electronic act is more iconic: David Guetta or Daft Punk?

David Guetta and Daft Punk are among the most seasoned dance-electronic artists. Guetta is a French DJ who's been in the game since the '80s, but he rose to prominence with "When Love Takes Over" in 2009, and continued to drop bop after bop in the 2010s. Daft Punk has been more behind-the-scenes this decade, but that doesn't make the duo any less iconic with hits like "Get Lucky" and "I Feel It Coming" under their belt. Which dance-electronic act is more iconic?

Daft Punk even influenced Guetta. According to a Rolling Stone interview with Guetta:

Were you still in Paris when Daft Punk came around?
Actually, Thomas [Bangalter, of Daft Punk] is probably the reason why I’m here today. I was DJing and I was also running a club called Queen in Paris, and I came up with a concept that was completely new. It’s really crazy when I think about it: The concept was to invite guest DJs, which is completely basic today, but at the time it was a total revolution. I would invite people like Danny Tenaglia and Louie Vega and David Morales, DJ Pierre – all those people and also people from Detroit. And Thomas and Guy-Manuel [of Daft Punk] would always come.
One day I made a record in 2001, and I was like, “Thomas, can I play you something?” I was a huge fan. He listened to it and was like, 'Woah, this is really good.' He called the president of Virgin in France–that was his label–and was like, 'Hey I’m here with a friend.' Imagine at the time, it was like God was calling the president of the company. It was insane. He was like the hottest artist in the world. It’s really funny because I didn’t make music for years and then when I started again after two days I had this record. The day before I was in the office of the company, and it was, like, impossible to get a meeting. Of course with Thomas calling, I signed on the same day.

Daft Punk was topping Billboard's U.S. Dance chart in the '90s with "Da Funk" and "Around the World," and continued to gain hits in the aughts. This is before the dynamic duo dropped "Get Lucky" and "Lose Yourself to Dance" with Pharrell Williams in the 2010s.
