Watch The Killers Cover Oasis

The Killers

“We’re gonna celebrate one of the UK’s finest,” Brandon Flowers tells the British crowd in this clip from this past weekend’s V Fest. And after those iconic establishing chords, somehow the crowd knows to start belting out “Don’t Look Back In Anger” and not “Imagine.” Only medium shots fired, because “Don’t Look Back In Anger” is a titanic jam and precisely the sort of soaringly anthemic sing-along song you want to be covering at an open-air festival. This clip establishes that, and also establishes the trans-Atlantic kinship between Oasis and the Killers as successful purveyors of world beating hooks who make up for their shortcomings in originality with ambition and personality. Watch (listen, really, the image is not good but the audio is enjoyable):
