Turns out Elton John isn't just a musical icon, he also froths EDM just like all of us.

During his Apple Music Beats 1 show, 'Rocket Hour', Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, spoke about their love of electronic music and the band that started it all. 

"I've always been a big electronic music fan, and I remember the first time I heard Kraftwerk sing Autobahn, and I'd heard nothing like it before in my life." said Furnish.

"I loved Star Trek and science fiction films, and suddenly there was music that just captured the future in a way that I'd never heard before. And I'm still a big electronic music lover today."

Elton John added his appreciation for Kraftwerk saying "I love [Autobahn] because it was the first record I ever heard that really sounded German as far as pop music went. It just is a seminal record in electronic music."

"I think their album Trans-Europe Express it's one of my all-time favorite records. I remember smoking a joint and listening to it on really loud speakers and I thought I saw God during that album."
