Huh. I'd have guessed, after 17 tracks, that they'd had it with this game.

Number one albums mean nothing since people stopped buying album. Also I'd like to point out Weird Al had a number one before them. I love Weird Al, I mean like love Weird Al, if he needed my kidneys he could have them, even if it were only for a one off comedy prop on a show in a scene that ultimately gets left on the cutting room floor, but if him hitting #1 isn't proof album are dead then I'll be a greased up ferret at Richard Gere's house.

/I don't mind the Killer either

I remember liking some Killers songs from a while back, but I didn't even recognise "The Man" as being them.  To me, that song is too disco.

And I am not Disco Stu.

A rather macabre juxtaposition with the Las Vegas shooting.

I absolutely love The Man, but I freely admit that I probably have garbage taste in music.

#1 Album in 2017?  That's what, 9,000 copies sold... somewhere?

No, it's a good song. I can't help but be amused every time I hear it.

It is a silly/pompus song, but, yes, I sing along every time it comes on (and going to see The Killers in Chicago in January).

I've only been to one minor league baseball game this year and don't recall hearing it (but, it was the last game "All of our theme nights for the year" night, so, they were playing very specific music selections), but, in my mind, that had to be the "Walk Up" music of choice this summer for baseball batters.... even if the video plays the lyrics in a cynical way..... who doesn't want to walk up to bat with "I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank, I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man" playing in the background.

"USDA certified lean" is either the best or worst lyric of the year.  I'll sing it every time.

And yet its still not even going to come close to making the same impact Hot Fuss, which was an important cultural touchstone of the time in which it came out.
