This is LOL. The Killers in Sept 2002. They've come a long way.

Hah, the audience has no clue that they're witnessing the defining song of one of the biggest bands of the future.

Brandon sounds like he's singing karaoke.

Brandon was a really lousy frontman back in the day, not surprised that the crowd was whatever about that performance.

The drum breakdown in the chorus was hilarious. Pretty shit all around, but they've improved by leaps and bounds.

It sounded like a horrible pub cover band.

The crowd looks about as interested as U2 fans at an Interpol concert.

They were so bad at the beginning, but I can't wait to see this.

Brandon Flowers: 'I'm definitely gonna do another solo record' | News | NME.COM

Also The Killers are playing Wembley Stadium on Saturday. Their first stadium show.

and.....for how much shit Sam's Town got when it came out, I find it to be a pretty solid album 7 years later, and I find myself going back to it the most. Deeper tracks like 'My List', 'The River Is Wild' and 'Uncle Johnny' have really grown on me.

I still can't decide whether I love or hate Battle Born.

Day & Age gets shit. I didn't know Sam's Town got shit...

The only one I give shit is Battle Born. They screwed Flesh and Bone up big time.

And Carry Me Home is better than half of the stuff on the album. This album has yet to connect with me...

Back when Sam's Town came out I remember a critic and fan backlash, both for it sounding so much different than Hot Fuss, and for Brandon Flowers saying it was going to be "the best rock album of the last 20 years". Although it's not like music critics have ever loved The Killers. I don't think any of their albums have above a 65 on Metacritic.

I agree with you on Flesh and Bone. Its better live.

The Jacques Lu Cont bonus track is better on the album, too. They have that one awesome hook that they used in the trailer and it got me so pumped up for it, only to realize it was only used once in the song. Tried to make it an epic hook it seems. Didn't work.

I hope that I look back in a couple of years and I like it though. I'd like to think that The Killers can be one of a very select few bands that I can say I would listen to every single song on every record they've put out. They are, after all, one of my favorite bands.

Sam's Town was 7 years ago? Shit, I remember that being on during an unforgettable lads holiday. Anyway, it means they haven't done anything decent for 7 years. Shame.

I'm pretty sure Sam's Town got way more shit than Day and Age. I think with Day and Age it didn't really get a lot of shit, just mostly very little publicity at all, due mostly in part, to how poorly Sam's Town did.
