72705165Scarlet confetti is a very good thing, and the front row gets covered with it at the end of a blistering performance by The Killers. Sounding as grand as the Grand Canyon, "When You Were Young" makes the case for The Killers as America's greatest rock band. No emo sniffling here. No tongue in cheek song titles. No cute bassist. This is a band who love The Joshua Tree so much they downloaded once a week just because they can. Brandon Flowers wears his ash-colored saloon keeper waistcoat and tie, and the drummer boasts a Blue Oyster 'tache. Their rocking is unabashedly sincere, and a little out of place in any awards show that features Kennedy.

I think the Killers were great! I don't think you can so basically compare MYR and the Killers as these are two bands with very different sounds. I think that both bands are good, but I prefer the Killers. Also, I don't know about the Killers being the saviors of rock, but I do think they give us true rock and roll fands something refreshing to look forward to.

oh wow, they were great. it's nice to hear , and see people get up onstage, and actually play the instruments that are making the music, and have someone actually sing the song live, the way it sounds when they produced it in the studio. I love, it, and they sounded great live.
