They needed a thread.


I like them quite a bit.

Their teenie fans are annoying though. The "OMG, Mr. Brightside rawks!" ones.

He means he's a bitter guy who likes to put others down.

I like the Killers a lot, but not as much as other bands. Are they working on another CD?

^ Said to be coming out in like April, that's the last I heard.

And I absloutely love them. Midnight Show is my favorite.

Oh and someone said something about their fans, they have quite a lot of older fans, like over thirty, and they're some of the nicest I've ever seen. very co-operative and sharing. I like their fans a lot.

I like them. I kinda had a debate with my friend, he said they were Emo and I said they weren't even though it doesn't matter, all that matters is there music is very good.

Everything is built on influence. I mean, come on, musicians have to be influenced by SOMETHING to write songs. I don't know those bands, so I don't know if the Killers completely ripped them off, but if they were influenced by them it's not the same.

it's not that they were influenced by them, it's that they just flat-out rip them off. the killers offer nothing new nor creative. their songs are glorified covers.

^ You know, I would respect and consider your opinion if everything you said wasn't just to make a fight. I bet a lot of other people would to.

i would respect and consider your opinion too if you ever attempted to support your case. instead of adressing my points, you just dismiss them and claim i'm looking for a fight, which is untrue.
