    I think its been used for years as sheet music has a metronome setting on it with a ‘(musical note) = xxx’ symbol where xxx is the tempo in beats per minute

    I used to have a book from 1978 about DJ’ing (original disco/flares style) which mentions it (and beat mixing), you could buy a large computer printout of all the disco tunes and their BPM

    Its also a widely used medical term (hence Kraftwerk’s choice of title)
