Manage episode 336275514 series 3244045
When it was released in the summer of 2004, Hot Fuss- the debut album from the Vegas-based band, The Killers- took America (and eventually the world) by storm. Chock-full of catchy, anthemic songs and a synth-laden sound that calls to mind the best of 1980s New Wave, Hot Fuss went on to become one of the most well-received albums of the new millennium, and is considered to be one of the most successful debut albums of all time. It also solidified The Killers' place in the annals of modern rock.
Listen as Jon and Chris finally embrace 21st century music (Chris boldly proclaims The Killers to be his favorite band of the 21st century) and do a deep dive on this monumental and incredibly infectious album.
