So it is "are we Human or are Dancer?" Then?

The Killers have one of the more hummable tracks of the year with “Human,” but they lyrics may be a little cryptic.
Singer Brandon Flowers tells MTV.com that the “Are we human or are we dancer?’ line was inspired by gonzo author Hunter S. Thompson, who once penned that America was raising a generation of dancers. “I just took it and ran with it,” says the vocalist.

“I think I know what he meant. I don’t want to be too much of a preacher here, but you know, it’s a mild social statement and that’s all I’m gonna say. We’re just trying to write the best pop songs we can write.” Flowers says that he’s been asked by others about the singular nature of “dancer,” and adds, “I guess it bothers people that it’s not grammatically correct. But I think that I’m allowed to do whatever I want.”


Still not sure what "America is raising a generation of dancers means" Does it mean people just dancing through life not giving a f***

it may have something to do with Rihanna, Britney, Pink and Pussycat Dolls being on the top of all charts. It seems like 'dancing generation' refers to people that are only interested in hook and rhythm and don't care about the meaning of the music or lyrics any more. Brainwashing.

Like the opposite of Nirvana times

Killers concert from the Royal Albert Hall is being streamed right now on BBC Radio 1 UK for those of you who want to tune in. They played a bunch of their new songs earlier and can be heard on the US stream of Radio 1 on Sirius Satellite Radio at 7PM EST.

Their broadcast on Sirius just begun with Brandon talking about how he grew up listening to U2 and Zane then saying "Any excuse to play The Fly!" as you hear the Edge start ripping into The Fly in the background. At least you gotta like where Brandon's head is at.

Yeah i saw it was up the other night and purchased it. Spaceman started downloading as soon as i pro-ordered which i was pretty excited about. Also I heard a few clips of their new material on the BBC the other night and it sounds pretty promising. They played clips of the studio versions of Dustland Fairytale, Neon Tiger, and Losing Touch

I still haven't heard the new song other than a brief snippet. I'm curious for the album but can't say I'm excited. I thought I liked Sam's Town, but find that all this time later, I haven't listened to it (other than one or two songs) more than twice since it came out.

I'll probably buy it all the same, in the hopes that there's something as awesome on it as the songs I love off Hot Fuss.

I'm really loving the Killers now, so pissed I couldn't get tickets for the garden show or the ballroom show.

I finally allowed myself to listen to just a little bit of one of the new songs. Can't even remember which one it was now (wasn't Spaceman though) and I just absolutely loved it. I didn't listen to the whole thing, just got a taste of how great this album should be, and now I can not WAIT for the 23rd.

Day And Age is now available for pre-order on iTunes, and if you do so you get "Spaceman" right now.
