Really? Someone posted earlier, they were fun live. Oh well, different minds, different opinions.

They are so bad. The leader singer can't sing. The gutiar melodies are cool though

I love their music. Some of their stuff gets old pretty fast, but they have some great tunes. A few friends and I are doing Mr. Brightside for a friend's graduation party; I can't wait.

I don't mind them. I have their album, but I've gotten kind of sick of it so i don't listen to it anymore. But I think their best songs are Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me and All These Things That I've Done.

They're okay...Kinda monotone voice.

But dam that "Mr. Brightside"....that thing will get lodged into your head like gonorrhea. Too catchy for its own good!

Pot

Why are people calling any kind of music indie?
I was reading Cobains biography (and I think Cross would know what hes talking about) and he called Nirvana an indie act before they broke out aswell as all the other underground bands in Seattle. I allways thought indie ment underground or somthing.

So can anyone clarify to me why people are calling bands like Death Cab For Cutie, Postal Service, and Killers indie? I allways figured it was some iddiot who wanted a cool name for their music so they stole the word.

I think their best is either All These Things or Jenny. Jenny is a great track.

I didn't mean teen-songish, I meant that the song gives a teenager feeling/atmosphere. Simple Plan try to sing to teenagers as a target; the Killers and Nirvana don't (didn't).

They're not indie. They're alternative, though.

I'm sure you either don't know the definition of emo/pop-punk, or just have never heard anything by the Killers, and maybe just looked at a picture and assumed that they were pop-punk because... I don't know. I guess I just don't understand the ignorant mind.



I think they're alright. Catchy, and have a few good songs, but they got old REALLY fast.

No they didn't, the killers got there name from some fictional band in a new order video.

Hot fuss is a great album, the best song by far is On Top.

The killers aren't Emo, and they are indie, the definition of indie is a band with a n indepentant record label

Alrighty then, they aren't emo. I don't know why anyone would even think that. Just because the lead singer wears eyeliner doesn't mean their emo. And I think they aren't indie because they are larger than life but they definitely are alternative.
