that is great 80's New Wave style. Have any of you heard them? They are so cool to listen to. 80's new wave is one of my guilty pleasures and this new band captures that same feel.

'Stang...if you dig them check out a band called The Bravery.......or Billy Corgan's new one...and believe it or not....*gulp*....Kelly Osbourne's new one. All of the aforementioned bands are purely in the 80's New Wave style.....

I liked the first one , but thought the second 'Sam's Town' was a tremendous disc - really strong set of songs. I still play it quite regularly. I also got the latest one a few weeks back, which isn't bad either.

 

Good band in general for me, for when I want something different.

The singer Brandon Flowers lived homeless on the streets of Salt Lake for many years, playing in countless bands, before hearing the call and greyhounding it to Vegas, which I guess paid off! if you guys wanna hear Killers at the most 80s sounding style I think they could pull off without actually being released in the 80s, check out their cd called Sawdust, it's B-Sides, Demos, and Remixes, it's got a song called Move Away, it's almost surreal what kind of 80s vibe they trap in this song, I bet you play it for 100 people that have never heard it, and 100 people would tell you it was a early to mid 80s song, excellent song also, not just 80s sounding, it is an extremely well done song, check it out.

I'm with you on this one mate. The 80's ruled (still rules)! That is my favourite decade in music. So many great artists, at least in the pop genre. The favourite of them all: Duran Duran.

I listened to a Killers album for first time the other day....

 

 

 

AWFUL!

 

 

Continues to justify why i hate music played on the radio. Why are these guys popular?! I dont get it! Also one of the worst vocalists ive heard.

 

Nobody on this thread said they had a good vocalist! nor did I read one post saying they were talented, I know I never said that, but you know what? if you played most of the shit on the radio all day long, the one time you wouldnt think it was all the same band playing is when the Killers came on, I'll be the first to say, which I have to countless friends, Brandon Flowers is a terrible singer, but he makes it work for the songs they play, and for that, they DON'T SOUND LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE! for better or worse.

Backed. They're absolutely HUGE here & it's currently very cool to like them, so they sell millions. IMHO their talent just doesn't justify that level of sales & they're very overhyped. I much prefer the more commercial sounding pop bands (Kids in Glass Houses, Go:Audio, Forever the Sickest Kids). That said, I'd much rather hear the Killers on the radio to Rap or R&B!

A lot of truth here. I hate this band too and it just seems to me that if you're going to bother liking something like this, you may as well concentrate those efforts on a good band like Go:Audio or Forever the Sickest Kids. ;)

    • This is what I was saying today - there's already been a handful in the last few months - didn't a handful of people get in a panic about the Cuban one? Was it Cuba? Who knows, who cares? The most blatantly obvious effect covid has had on people is that it's turned them into panic-stricken fucking morons. Is this how the rest of our lives look? We jump at every single shadow now that ever emerges from the dark? It's an absolutely pathetic way to "live."  Remember when a couple of years ago the world revolved around inspirational sayings like, "Don't let what can go wrong hold you back. Focus on what can go right." They used to word it a lot better than that, but the idea is the same. But the world's the opposite now. Flipped on it's head. A couple of cases of something we're all vaccinated against pop up somewhere and everyone spirals into a panic again? Even though the overwhelming odds are that this will be absolutely nothing again, first port of call is just full blown panic again? What a fucking world, ay.  And this is one of my greatest concerns about the whole stupid fucking thing. In NSW we are 95% vaccinated but every single case that is detected is treated as if we're in March 2020. Even with a 95% vaccination rate, how the virus is viewed and feared has not changed a single percent, in the government and media, since March 2020. And I think this is a problem. We're all vaccinated against it so why isn't it let go, like a flu or whatever else people are vaccinated against, so we can build some kind of resistance to it? Get this herd immunity thing under way? If we're not doing it now, what's the point of any of it? This is the preference, to live in stupid fear for the rest of our lives?  I don't know. I don't know anything about anything, but if we're all vaccinated and we just let the covid thing spread anywhere and everywhere, doesn't that just lessen the effect of any new strains and all this melodrama? But if we keep jumping at every single case like it's terminal cancer, how the fuck do we ever try to move on towards a life worth living?   
    • yep that's exactly what it says on the Web page. Probably takes them about a few hours of tinkering ... adding the odd name etc. not bad work for $7500 
    • It is funny and you are correct the woke police would not allow this behavior on TV or anywhere else any more. Of course who wouldn't want to lay hands on Kirstie Ally?  Those years weren't bad, but I am a bit older and these years are my favorite and equally as un PC.  
    • Well that was certainly a nice tune. Big fan of the production, that bass is rattling my fillings.
    • He has a soft spot for the cheesy promotional tracks.    
    • We didn't really get "cable" TV here until about the early 90's. I have great memories of SNL from that era. I've always followed it since then.  
    • Even if she did, I don't think I'd slide it in.
    • Does anybody remember when SNL was actually funny? I was in the 7th grade and I'd record it every week, Ive looked for a long time for many of the truly funny skits from this time, and now ive started to find some, bet they couldnt get away with this again.
