Doesn't everyone here sense that by putting out a greatest hits already, it's a sign that The Killers have exhausted the well and are essentially done?

No, I sense that the Killers have released 5-6 albums and want to make more money. It's pretty common practice.

Also, I'm taking it as an excuse to extend the tour.

Love the song, but damn that video was just too happy. There was absolutely no conflict. It was like a children's TV show.

You mean working in a casino isn't conflict?

I do like this song, better than most on Battle Born.

Shot ...... Is a leftover Battle Born song that has been polished up for this un-needed compilation.

A good song none the less

It's sad to me that the Killers peaked early and have slowly been losing traction ever since. Each album has sold significantly less than the one before. They're probably my favorite band to come out of the '00s. While I can't get into now like I used to, Sam's Town was the right album at the right time for me in the fall of 2006. I've rarely connected with an album like I did with that one.

If this compilation turns more people on to the Killers, great! I definitely won't be buying it, but fans like me aren't the reason to release it.

Does anybody here know why they decided to call themselves The Killers? I'm genuinely curious. To be honest, I think it's a terrible name for a band... unless there is an explanation that makes sense.

The name came from the fictional band that performed New Order's Crystal in their music video from 2001.

Or at least their record company does anyway.

VH1 Exclusive Track Premiere: 'Just Another Girl' by The Killers | Video | MTV

A bit of an easier listen than Shot at the Night, but it'll probably grow on me here.

Pretty good. Definitely a throw-away, but I appreciated it for what it was.
