I'm sure there's no rule that three songs is the maximum, though. I think the choices off Sam's Town are horrible.

Considering all of the albums are equally represents by three songs, it does look like whoever wrote the track listing did sit down and set that stipulation.

There are actually four songs from Hot Fuss there.

And yes, I'd add another one. It's their most popular album by some distance.

Oh, my mistake! No doubt, if there's no strict setting then I would agree. I'd remove everything but Runaways from BB too. And maybe add F&B. Maybe this is a stretch to some, but I feel like Bling is one of their best songs.

If I were writing a best of for The Killers, it'd probably have like 10 songs prior to Day & Age and even with new tracks, it'd probably only be like 16 songs. I guess you could say I like the early stuff better in this instance.

But I really don't care what they release at this point because odds are I won't listen to it.

I see 4 songs in there from Hot Fuss.

Yea it's very difficult choosing from Hot Fuss. The album is chock full of great songs!

Jenny was never released as a single. (Of course neither was 'The Way It Was') perhaps that was the reasoning? Im guessing they just didn't want to make it too Hot Fuss heavy.

They could have swapped Jenny for Smile Like You Mean It I suppose.

I think that's exactly what it was. Add Jenny or any other Hot Fuss track, and it's 1/3 of the album at 5 total songs. Not really giving people an incentive to buy Hot Fuss in the future, you know?

Nope, I totally agree.

No way! Smile Like You Mean It is one of their absolute best! It's in my Top 3 I think. His vocal delivery is so perfect in that track.

It's a greatest hits, not a best of. Anyway, I'd switch it off after track 6. I used to like them so much and now they're just kinda there, like Muse and The Strokes.

Hahaha, exactly. I don't even particularly like Somebody Told Me. Replace that one with Jenny and you'd have one awesome EP though.

"Greatest Hits" is fact. And "Best Of" is opinion. There's no point in even discussing greatest hits then, as to what should've made it and what shouldn't be there.

I still haven't heard Battle Born for some reason. :/

I kind of forgot that The Killers even released an album last year.

It seemed to leave just as quickly as it arrived.

Because BB was unfinished and rotten by Killer standards (but good as any album).

Greatest Hits for them should at least include every single... There's more than enough room.
