i was gonna critique brandon flowers for encouraging someone by telling them “youre a star, in nobodys eyes but mine”, but i looked it up and it turns out he wrote the song to mock the guy who tormented him in highschool, so i guess the moral of the story is not to doubt brandon flowers
TBT: WATCH THE KILLERS’ UNFORGETTABLE 2005 LOLLAPALOOZA PERFORMANCE
Just weeks after “Mr. Brightside” hit the top of the charts, the Vegas band started one hell of a dance party in Grant Park.
Lollapalooza kicked off this weekend in Chicago’s Grant Park and it’s safe to say organizers went all out for the fest’s big 25th anniversary. In addition to huge name headliners like Lana Del Rey, Radiohead, Future, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, and LCD Soundsystem, the festival is expanding to four days for 2016. Yeah, it’s going to be a major party.
But 2016 isn’t the first time Lollapalooza’s pulled out all the stops. In 2005, a year after the fest was cancelled, the mighty Lolla gods descended on Grant Park in a huge way. Dashboard Confessional, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Killers all landed on the bill, making for an indie rock trifecta of downright epic proportions. Keep in mind this was only a month after the Killers’ “Mr. Brightside” hit the Top 10 of the Billboard charts. The song was everywhere, and onstage at Lolla those iconic opening chords cemented it as the ultimate festival dance party starter. Led by a baby-faced Brandon Flowers, the band dropped the Hot Fuss single as their penultimate offering to Chicago and the crowd joyously lost it in the process. Not long after, Hot Fuss went platinum, garnering the Vegas rockers a handful of Grammy nominations and making them bonafide superstars. Watch the band’s unforgettable performance and never forget that once upon a time, we were all Mr. Brightside
You’ve got to give him credit, Mark’s avatars are always interesting. This most recent Twitter avatar is particularly so.
I can also relate to it on a personal level. It’s how I feel about the photos being posted of the current Killers tour: seeing picture of the band without Mark makes me sad. So, if I don’t see them, they don’t exist.
