Somebody told Mr. Brightside

The Killers are one of my currently overplayed iTunes selections. There is something about their "fast paced-narrative" music that just keeps my attention for some reason. I love it!

Aug 19, 2007 - AntiCowJuice on The Killers
Electronica or Rock?

Listen to them and find out... Either way, they might be a bit over played sometimes, but they still manage to keep their own unique sound.~

Jul 18, 2007 - mmelmon on The Killers
Maybe they try too hard...

...but it sure is fun to sing along.
