The Killers is one of my favorite bands.
Mr. Brightside is one of my favorite songs of all time. I know how to sing that song during videoke trips and I guess their other music, Somebody Told Me is a distant second.
I don’t know much about Megadeth though.
I know a lot of hairspray rock bands but my real knowledge is limited to Guns ‘N’ Roses, Jon Bon Jovi, and Aerosmith – if you consider Aerosmith a part of that music era.
Drumeo had this video wherein Megadeth’s Dirk Verbeuren delivers an insane Mr. Brightside drum cover. In some ways, he transformed the song into an entirely new thing. In some ways, it feels like his version channels Switchfoot, Semisonic, and the other American pogi rockers of that era.
It's like that scene wherein a dude stops his girl from riding an airplane by running aimlessly inside an airport.
Anyway, it’s a great listen.
