Killers On Saturday Night Live

By Scott Lapatine / October 1, 2006

The Killers rolled into 30 Rock last night as musical guests for a painfully unfunny SNL season premiere. On “When You Were Young,” Brandon brought his Sam’s Town sensibility to indie-nerd chic, working that plantation tie and thick frames.

For “Bones” Brandon donned a glitzier riverboat gambler getup.

What was B. Flow’s stylist thinking last night? Cuomo meets Pedro?

  • I?ve got fat, but I?m not a father.
  • I?ve got a coat, but I?m not a coat rack.
  • I?ve got heat, but I?m not a heathen.
  • I?ve got a cat, but I?m really more of a dog person.
  • I?ve got ambition, but I?m not one of those people who?s just going to knock everyone out of his way to get what he wants, you know?
  • I?ve got a rash, but I dont? think it?s contagious.
  • I?ve got cocaine, but I?m just holding it for a friend.
  • I?ve got some David Bowie CDs, but I?m no David Bowie.

UPDATE: I’ve got “Bones,” but not eleven secret herbs and spices.
