While most American bands follow the mainstream by setting up love themes in their songs as well as going to Los Angeles to build their career, The Killers has made its own ways to the walk of fame. The members' persistence to stay in Las Vegas and their exploration on weird issues, like paranoia, jealousy, ambition, even homoerotic themes, are indeed challenging, yet have proven to lead the band into an incredible accomplishment. "I've always had this thing about it not really mattering where you 're from," commented Brian Flowers, the vocalist and keyboardist of the band, "because there's always been this big cloud over America saying you have to live in L.A or you have to live in New York to make it. I always knew it didn't matter as long as you had the songs."
