theyre not new at all, i used to like em ages ago but after mr brightside got famous and i heard it about 10000000X i got bored and realised the rest of the album is pretty much the same, havent listened to them for ages though, i may like them all over again

Used to really like the Killers till some cowbag gave them horrific mental associations. I gave it away to work to use as hold music.

New wave was crap the first time, let it die already.



ok then, what of your post-2000 cds do you own that are completely original (barr Radiohead)

I've got the album, and it's alright. The singles are good, but as somebody said the other songs do seem to wear thin rather quickly.

Mr Brightside is great though.


Yeah well where i'm from only 1/100000000 of the population has heard of them. Not a really BIG number

I told him yeah, about 2 years ago when I got the album. He was gutted

I got the album ages ago, listened to it and shoved it in a pile. I came across it the other day and had a listen and quite enjoyed it. The singles have been played to death on TV and radio but I still quite liked the album. The first song whatever it's called was probably my favourite, I much prefer them to Kaiser Chiefs and a lot of the other bands around at the moment.

*Shoves back in pile to find again in a few years*

I think they have a lot of potential, and some of the stuff on the album is good. The first half is great, as is Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll, but the rest is just filler.

I didnt say they had to be completely original. Using new ideas in CONJUNCTION with old ideas is good. Just recycling the old ideas, as was my point, is not good.

How much more simpler do I need to make it? Sheesh.

answer: Stephen Malkmus' Face The Truth, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's Acme and Pretty Girls Make Graves' new one (Elan Vital) are three examples, I'm sure many more exist.

Hells no! They got it from a new order video, "Crystal" where the bass drum of the mock band was labeled "The Killers"!

To satisfy your curiosity, I found an answer... I got this from their message board/ forum on their site:

In the ATTID US video the numbers signify the right order for the video, because it's all out of synch (like Pulp Fiction).

Don't know exactly what that means but wish I coulda helped.

I can't remember the video but from that I'd presume it's not in chronological order and that the numbers show the order it should happen in. Maybe
