Well, this Killers song is at least better than that fucking dreadful All These Things I've Done song that has the worst lyric in all recorded history.

And their drums, too. I highly recommend listening to How The West Was Won live by Zeppelin. Actually, PFan, just for you, I'll try to upload it. And you can see if you like it.

live to tell i really like bono_212's playlist.

it's sad, everything i like is stupid pop music, it seems. i think the only thing that wouldn't fall into the pop category that i like is early split enz (seriously, anyone who knows what i like and then listened to something like, say, titus or under the wheel would be shocked i love that band), maaaaaybe japan, and david sylvian. boo.

I don't like the police either. Sting's voice drives me up the wall.

Like with When the Levee Breaks. Absolutely phenomenal.

Not to mention a great performance too.

reggatta de blanc is an awesome album, but zenyatta mondatta is brilliance. i think synchronicity is a tad overrated, but on the other hand it is a near perfect album.

I hate the death growl concept as a whole. I think it's laughably pathetic. The clean vocals on the song work well ... so why fuck with that?

Still, overall, it's a decent track.
You haven't heard black metal yet. It wouldn't even make sense with clean vocals. The instrumental sound pretty much demands the black metal rasp. Nothing else would work with the aesthetic.

I don't have any black metal in this list, but Arcturus is an avantgarde metal band rooted in black metal - they use clean vocals.

Never heard it. Not a Killers fan. Song came from a burnt CD my brother received, I happened to like this particular track.

I thought so too. I don't listen to enough Killers to know if they both sound the same often.

I've always despised them. I remember when Brandon Flowers came on stage with U2 in 2005. That sucked beyond words. And Bono snippeting All These Things I've Done in Beautiful Day made me cringe. A lot.

All These Things I've Done has the line "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier".

WTF.

Yeah, and I've been in a car but I'm not a carrot. UNRELATED WORDS, DIPSHITS.
