    Just wondering if it’s as big a song across the pond as it is here in the U.K.?

    it's by an American band who tour heavily over there and have headlined massive venues like Madison square garden over there - almost certainly have.

    Most likely bigger or about the same... E- Looking into it, it charted about the same, the US doesn't/didn't have an indie chart, but it peaked at 10 on the billboard hot 100, same as it's peak in the UK singles chart.

    Actually Not, the killers have got a reputation in America, but they are a LOT bigger here in the UK even though they are an American band.

    What; the insipid, two-note dirge whose airplay achieved such unprecedented levels of saturation as to be heard through the ground in cemeteries? Why yes, I'd imagine so.

    Yep, they are an American band and I think they have the same instance of it being the final song at parties over there

    I know everyone says there's no accounting for taste (and that applies to me more than most), but I really can't see the appeal of this band. Just passes me right by.

    Human

    Yeah, it's just pop-rock by numbers to me. All a bit dull.

    I mean, people like them, fair play.
