After that great incredible renaissance of rock music we had back in the 1990's with all that amazing grunge/alternative scene which exploded with no end in sight it seemed around 1995/1996, then came the tragic downfall and great bands such as Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, and Rage Against the Machine dissolved and are only a mere memory now in 2005. We got invaded by Britney Spears, N'Sync, Hip-Hop, and other purely commercial pop music which sometimes is good, but not to the level of what the previous decade was producing in quality.
Well, there's this little rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada called The Killers, and upon listening to their album Hot Fuss, I am excited to hear something new and different all over again. Classified as indie rock by some, The Killers' debut album is actually quite good and catchy. I'm hoping these guys will continue to make better albums with this kind of quality and will survive in the very competitive and shallow music business. So far so good, selling about three million copies and counting of their first CD.
And that lead singer Brandon Flowers is such a hot guy too. Married now I guess, but I'm pretty sure he's smoked some man pole with ease in the past.
Probably still does now.
To watch/listen to some of their music videos, with particular attention to their best song All These Things That I've Done, go here:
