New Killers – “A Great Big Sled”

Stereogum | December 6, 2006 - 12:56 pm

A Christmas song from The Killers! Just today, the band released their charity single to iTunes, in service of Bono’s Africa-aiding (RED) campaign. But it’s not just charity that’s motivated Brandon to pen a yuletide tune. He told MTV:

I think people see us as these kind of coldhearted music machines, and we’re really getting tired of that. They want somebody to be (Oasis frontman) Liam Gallagher, or they want someone to be an a**hole, and we’re just not that big of a**holes. So I decided (writing a Christmas song) would be a nice way to show people that we’ve got a sense of humor. And that we weren’t complete a**holes.

Oh Brandon nobody thinks your an a**hole! If you wanna hear the song but just can’t find it in your heart to give up some money for (RED), head to Hype for a stream. (Seriously, should probably just buy it.) Is it just us, or is this the best Xmas song of the last 20 years?
