Top Ten The Killers Songs

The Top Ten

1 Mr. Brightside Mr. Brightside Cover Art

So good and a great melody
so catchy!
'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.

Just because it's their most popular song doesn't mean it's not their absolute best! This song is amazing in every aspect.

2 When You Were Young When You Were Young Cover Art

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

Peak Killers. They needed something huge after the reaction to Hot Fuss and man this did the trick.

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"!

3 All These Things that I've Done All These Things that I've Done Cover Art

Greatest song of all time.

I got soul but I'm not a soldier.

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!

"while everyone's lost the battle is won, with all these things the I've done.." Have you heard more redeeming and heartwarming lyrics? This song is sheer rock brilliance musically and lyrically, an example of a great rock song for many years to come...and it appeared in my life with a timing that was unbelievably precise. I felt literally that I had nowhere else to run, that was when I met her. I met this girl and she gave me a reason to smile again when I was lost, we're together now and I relate my love for her with this song, and it fits in my life so good that I can't put it into words...the soundtrack of the happiest life moment I've had in a long long time.i'm just blown away...and I love her. Talk about epic songs

4 Somebody Told Me Somebody Told Me Cover Art

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?

Tell me in the music video Brandon Flowers does not look like MatPat.

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

5 Smile Like You Mean It Smile Like You Mean It Cover Art


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.

"Dreams are what they used to be... (but hey) smile like you mean it... "

This is the Killers song that resonates with me most. I love this band. Their music has a certain mood that I don't find often in other bands.

6 Read My Mind Read My Mind Cover Art

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

My personal favourite. I think this got a lot of people into the band.

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!

7 Human Human Cover Art

This song is so catchy and was the song that got me into the killers! Absolutely love it! Always cheers me up too! Even though all their songs are amazing! Xx

This song is awesome! Are we HUMANS? The Killers is one of the best bands out there! They sure left their mark on the music history.

İ love this song so much come on who doesn't love this song this is awesome and the sample is good too really I love this song this song is the reason I adore the killers,

Amazing song. Lyrics somehow insanely catchy despite not making sense,

8 Jenny Was a Friend of Mine Jenny Was a Friend of Mine Cover Art

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!

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

Never thought a song about murder could be this good!

Definitely their best song, I can't get enough of it, some of the best instrumental's I've ever heard. I don't know why this isn't number one.

9 Runaways Runaways Cover Art

A comeback of sorts after some fans missed this sound during Day & Age.

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.

10 Spaceman Spaceman Cover Art

I love so many Killer's songs, and know the lyrics to a lot of them, but I recently discovered Spaceman, and it's so amazing that I can't express it through words. You have to listen to the song. I also can't stop dwelling on the meaning of the lyrics, and whether this is a story of a suicide, or a rise to stardom, each would convey a new meaning to the lyrics. I just love this song, don't understand why I tried to word it, because it's a connection beyond words.

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.

The Contenders

11 Miss Atomic Bomb Miss Atomic Bomb Cover Art

I can't believe this nearly didn't make it on the album. It's fantastic.

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.

12 Bones Bones Cover Art

My favourite love song. Doesn't take itself too seriously and so much fun, I love it.

Good to see this one is decently high on the list. I thought it was very underrated! Good music video as well!

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.

13 Change Your Mind Change Your Mind Cover Art

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!

The snares played in this song perfectly captured the beat of my heart when I listened to this song for the first time. The lyrics are beautiful, the melody is catchy. This song deserves to have a spot in the top 10.

14 For Reasons Unknown For Reasons Unknown Cover Art

We've all been there. Explores and describes falling out of love perfectly.

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)

15 Sam's Town Sam's Town Cover Art

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

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


Excellent opening song of the best Killers album out ther

16 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:(

The best song for the Killers. Deserves top spot in my humble opinion.

17 A Dustland Fairytale A Dustland Fairytale Cover Art

The live performance of Dustland Fairytale at the Royal Albert Hall is probably one of my favourite things ever

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.

18 The Man The Man Cover Art

Catchiest chorus of all time. I got news for you baby, you're looking at The Man.

Great chorus, I love the half beat of silence almost at the end, they really got it!

Deserves top 20

Song is definitely top 5 material!

19 Just Another Girl Just Another Girl Cover Art

This song should be in the top ten. This song is amazing. The chorus, His voice, the message is great. I love this song so much

I love this song so damn much. It matches my real life situation. laugh out loud

Absolutely amazing! I love it and if you haven't watched the video, you really should

This is the perfect Killers song, it accurately portrays how The Killers sound nothing like any other band ever. Amazing.

20 Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll Cover Art

Always been my favourite Killer's song! Don't know what it is about it but I used to listen to it every night before I went to sleep when I was 15 and recently put Hot Fuss onto my new iTunes and it still gives me the same feelings.

My favourite Killers song. It's just perfect from start to finish. I just want to belt the lyrics whenever I hear it. Oh and can someone from the website change the sample to the Hot Fuss version, it's miles better.

Everything about this song is right. The Killers have a knack for starting out slow and simple in a song and building into a creative alternative anthem, and they perfected that method of songmaking with "Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll. " When people ask what my favorite Killers song is I just say "it's indie rock and roll for me. "

The greatest song you can listen to just after stumbling in from a night out. Whack the stereo to the max and introduce your neighbors to one of the greatest songs of the Noughties

21 Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet Cover Art

This song is really good. It's relaxing and shouldn't be rated at 34 but more around 1-5, it's just not known because it's in the album sawdust which not many people listen to.

Really underrated song, should be at least in the top 10. The lyrics are amazing.

This one few rare times when the cover is better than the original.

This song is 28 because it was a cover, not much change from dire straights version and the killers

22 Andy, You're a Star Andy, You're a Star Cover Art

Literally homophobic that this song is so low in the rankings

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

23 Under the Gun Under the Gun Cover Art

Are you serious? Such great lyricism combined with an awesome tempo. Don't know how this wasn't even mentioned in the top 35.

How is this so low? The beat to this song is so sick. It was through this song I really felt the diversity of songs that the Killers could pull off. Definitely belongs in the top 15 if not top 10

I was actually shocked that this song was so on the list. I was just scrolling throught and waiting for it to show up in the top ten, let alone the top twenty. This song has this energy that really gets to you, its catchy from the start and has an amazing melody. The lyrics are beautiful, and I had this song on repeat for days and never got tired of it. Give it a listen and see how you like it after, because this somg should never be this far down the list!

This and Sweet Talk carried the Sawdust album. You just have to listen to it to know its awesomeness

24 Battle Born Battle Born Cover Art

Great song, highly under-rated, sounds great live. Give it a listen

What a terrific song, with so much depth. This song needs to be ranked higher. The only reason it should be this low is if nobody has listened to it.

This should be 2012 onwards signature Killers sound...this is what they have evolved into - total awesomeness!

Underrated song from an underrated album. The Killers quality on the whole of the Battle Born album was first class but the title track just tops it all

25 Be Still Be Still Cover Art

GREAT SONG! Very emotional. Very good vocals. Great job Killers! Battle born is a good album. At first I didn't like it but now that I've listened to it for a second time and REALLY listened to it instead of having it in the backround. I like it.

One of the best ballads I've ever heard!

So atmospheric and so beautiful. Makes me so happy and so sad every time

This song get to me all the time! Some great lyrics in this song!
