'But she�'s touching his chest now, he takes off her dress now, LET ME GO! '

Greatest song ever! Always gets in my head. Fantastic lyrics and a fantastic voice from Brandon. Long live the Killers!

AMAZING SONG. Very catchy, excellent lyrics... Relates to society well.

2 When You Were Young When You Were Young

Smooth voice, addicting melody, a song that always wanna make you sing to it.

Incredible lyrics, and great tune, the best song probably from 21st century. "He doesn't look a thing like Jesus"

Awesome lyrics "he doesn't look a bit like jesus but ha talks like gentleman"!

Personally my favourite over Mr. Brightside.. Awesome guitar rift, great vocals and an overall great tune. Is there anything else to ask for?

3 All These Things That I've Done All These Things That I've Done

Greatest song of all time.

I got soul but I'm not a soldier. - InsertNameHere

Beautifully crafted song, the pace, the lyrics, the instrumentals are all heartfelt; the song has actual meaning to it.

My favourite song of one of my favourite bands of all time. This song is awesome beyond words! - RiffandMagenta

Love this song! Smart lyrics too!

4 Somebody Told Me Somebody Told Me

I love this song... this song introduce me to the killers!

This is just perfect! My favorite song. One of the best songs ever. I think best song of Killers. "Somebody Told Me" why this song isn't number 1 in this list?

As long as this is above human I'm fine. Human made me lose so much respect for the killers but whatever. This has been my favorite song since 5th grade

I really DO NOT understand why this is not way up there in first place, granted Mr Brightside is also one of my all time favourites

5 Read My Mind Read My Mind

The song by The Killers that makes the most sense to me. - iainm5

Definitely underrated. So strong and beautiful, not to mention the lyrics are just surreal genius

This is one song from The Killers, like Mr. Brightside and When We Were Young, that will never, ever, get boring. I hope to play these songs to all of the upcoming generations, so they live on to be legends in the far future!

My personal favourite by The Killers and deserves to be number 1, Mr. Brightside is so overrated!

6 Smile Like You Mean It Smile Like You Mean It

HEY! THIS IS THE BEST THE KILLERS SONG AND SHOULD BE number 1.
THE KILLERS IS AWESOME AND LOVE THEM so MUCH. ALL THEIR SONGS ARE GREAT BUT THIS IS THE BEST! PLEASE VOTE, VOTE AND VOTE, VOTEVOTE, DFD

The beat is catchy SMILE LIKE YOU MEAN IT The guitar and vocals are great as well and is definitely a better song than somebody told me

I can't believe that this song is currently number 8. It's full of meaning and tops songs such as Mr. Brightside. However I guess it's up to the masses and if the newest catchy song tops the list then so be it.

The guitar solo is amazing although its kind of muffled

7 Human Human

8 Spaceman Spaceman

There's no song in the world quite like this song. It has a unique sound and feel all throughout the song, and invokes an unexplainable feeling in the listener. Truly a great song by The Killers, and my favorite by far.

I have no idea how Spaceman is ranked at number 7. It should really be ranked nearer the top, perhaps the top 5. How Somebody Told Me overtook it is a mystery. Spaceman is.. well its actually indescribable. If magic was put to music, this is how it would sound. And watching the music video just adds to its awesomeness. Long live the Killers!

I love all of The Killers' songs I truly do. Honestly the greatest yet most underrated band ever. Spaceman to me is the best record because of Brandon's smooth voice transitions, the opening moans to the song the musical part of it.Most importantly the lyrics to the blind listener its a tale of a lost soul who tries to commit suicide but realizes the worst is "all in you're mind" & life is beautiful & worth living but slowly enjoying the privellahe of few time we have.

I would like to say, I was really depressed one day. I was about to cut, and then this song came on in my playlist. I didn't know it at the time, I just added a bunch of songs. But it made me feel happy. I don't know why but whenever I feel that way I listen to this and it sorta helps.

9 Jenny Was a Friend of Mine Jenny Was a Friend of Mine

I cannot get enough of this song! The haunting lyrics and musical style is unlike anything I've ever heard before!

Did you know that this song, along with "Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf" and "Midnight Show", are all part of the so-called "murder trilogy", in which Jenny get's murdered. This is the third song, and the best by far! - Guido

VEry catchy and I could listen to it for the rest of my life

Never thought a song about murder could be this good!

I made a joke version of this with edited lyrics but still it is pretty much the same theme. Enjoy:
"Jenny was a friend of mine and now she's dead!
Jenny jenny jenny jenny
Dead Dead Dead! "

10 Runaways Runaways

Great amazing new song great guitar bass drumming and singing should be way way higher up the list this song should be number 7, 8, 9 or 10 really good amaIng work

The beat on the line 'We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams.. ' is just so damn good! I'm a fan of the Killers and I love almost all their songs, well this is the song that's got me hooked these days. Hop it moves up the rankings.

Incredible lyrics, and great tune, the best song they've done since Hot Fuss.

This should be number 1, it's an amazing song. It has incredible lyrics and best tune. - RichardSSG

The Newcomers

? Carry Me Home Carry Me Home

Definitely one of the best Killer's songs all time. If you haven't heard it, you need too. You won't regret it!

? The Rising Tide The Rising Tide

This song has a great beat, catchy meaningless lyrics but should be in the higher up 🌀because of the solo just over half way through

The Contenders

11 Miss Atomic Bomb Miss Atomic Bomb

This is The Killers' masterpiece, because in this song whe can find a voice that Brandon has never had before. This melancholy elegy is Mr. Brightside's sister, as we can notice from the title and from the riff near 3:38. Also Dave's guitar has great importance in the song: Dave plays it in a particular way ( plucking the guitar ), making chords only in the end. Ronnie's drums accompany all the song, with a slow, but involving rhythm. I'm a great victim and I know all the Killers' songs, so I can say that this songs has something more than the others... Perfect...

The most complete song by the Killers, their Bohemian Rhapsody in a way!

Ultimate Killers song! There version of a Don't Stop Believing or Dream On, pure classic just like the whole Battle Born album. Already voted Rolling Stone's readers song of the year. That must count for something.

Such a powerful song by the killers. It's so emotional and moving and it's the perfect song to blast in the car with windows down.

12 A Dustland Fairytale A Dustland Fairytale

A Dustland Fairytale is definitely my favorite Killers song. Before this song I liked the Killers, but to be honest I hadn't really listened to their stuff aside from Mr. Brightside. After this I was completely hooked. I thought the lyrics were completely outstanding. Then again, after listening to the rest of their songs, I found that most of their lyrics are. The Killers are just an incredible band.

A Dustland Fairytale is a true masterpiece and is definitely among the best songs written by the Killers. It may not have as catchy a chorus as other songs of theirs such as Mr Brightside or When You Were Young but lyrically it is so beautiful and captures the story it sets out to tell so perfectly. This song speaks volumes to me and makes me appreciate the Killers even more than I already do.

By far the best Killers song, but the best version I've heard is from their live performance on David Letterman. Do yourself a favor, especially if you've only heard the studio version or watched the official video, and go watch and listen to the Letterman performance on YouTube. I wasn't the biggest fan of Day and Age, but this song is more of a bridge between that album and Sam's Town.

It's not a very well known song, but the lyrics are so meaningful and I cannot explain how much love I have for this song

13 Sam's Town Sam's Town

Probably the best song on the Sam's Town album. Brilliant lyrics, very catchy tune. Very underrated. Excellent song! - Johnsyboy

Great song, the lyrics is so strong in this one!

THIS SONG JUST ROCKS, SO UNDERVALUED.. SHOULD BE PLAYED AT EVERY SHOW.. ISEE LONDON I SEE SAMS TOWN!

The music on this track reminds
Me of garbage " tell me where it hurts. Both are! Well listen for yourself? Brilliant.

14 Bones Bones

Amazing! Damn, I can not stop listening to this song. It is so raw, I want your bones on my bones, damn. Bad-Ass!
"So apologetically dressed" For some reason, that part gives the feeling of disaster to the song. A disaster gone great, oh the irony

A very unexpected song. Good from 'COME WITH ME' until the end. It sends shivers down my spine. Also, love the lyrics and singing. Brandon does his job and I can relate to many lines: 'Don't you wanna feel my skin on your skin? ' and 'I don't really like you'. One of the greatest songs.

Simply awesome. Kind of forgotten about really because there's so many great songs on Sam's Town but an absolutely fantastic song. "Don't you wanna come with me Don't you wanna feel my bones on your bones" Great song.

The music and the lyrics have been in my mind since I listened this song!

15 Change Your Mind Change Your Mind

Just can't see this song lower the list. Please! Listen to this song and then vote.
Awesome song... By killers... Just love it...

Its definitely worth a higher position in the list... pretty good song. The Killers rock! YEAH!

How does this have only 1 percent of the votes when Human has 8!? This should be at least in the top 10, classic song by The Killers! Listen to it then come back here and rightly vote for Change Your Mind!

One of the most underrated Killers songs. Catchy synth part, solid rhythm section, and the guitar fills out the background. Surprised this isn't in the top 10..

16 This River Is Wild This River Is Wild

Massively underrated, but definitely one of the best Killers songs; catchy, exemplary vocals and a moving emotional finish.

This song is just great! Extremely catchy, and amazing lyrics! Probably my favorite song from a lyrical standpoint from the killers. Amazing song!

Me and my dad love listening to The Killers everyday, and he tries to play this song and others on our guitar. All of their songs are great, but I really like this song. It's fun too, since my brother likes it too. Somedays.

Amazing song. Can't just be sung, has to be performed! So much energy! I don't really know what they're talking about, but it doesn't matter! Favorite song by The Killers and any other band ever.

17 Andy, You're a Star Andy, You're a Star

Is easily my favourite killers song the few lines 'in a car with a girl, promise me shes not your world, because Andy you're a star' make the whole song.

I love this song, It is entirely unde-rated and deserves a much higher spot. The deep meaning of the song is amazing.

"Hey shut up, hey shut up" I was gonna vote for another one, but this one looked lonely

The power in the line "promise me she's not your world…" makes the whole song! It's the vocals and lyrics together that make it so powerful and awesome to listen to

18 Shot at the Night

Quite good song. I've never liked a song from the killers like this one. I feel like I'm in another time... I don't know how to explain that.

Great song. Every line does something to you.

It deserves to be in the top ten list at least:(

Right up there in the top 5 with Mr. Brightside, Human, Tranquilize and Somebody told me

This is like they're best song live

Beautiful indescribable song

20 For Reasons Unknown For Reasons Unknown

It's the best because its lyrics are so right.. I believe everyone can identify with it... besides Brandon plays the bass... and it's about how you lose yourself through time.. or how your life changes or some situations change and you don't even know why... I mean.. I can't put it in words

This is the song that hooked me into the killers. I feel like this song and My List were the first times that Brandon took off the veil and exposed himself. Like a nerve.

Incredible song, sums up life pretty much, and fits perfectly into what is a great album (Sam's Town)

Underrated man
