The Killers cover Bright Eyes

A lot of people are pretty angry that The Killers did this. They want 'The Killers' to all die and burn a fiery death because they re-did this song. The song in question is "Four Winds", originally by Bright Eyes. It's not like the song is overly old, but it's a cult classic. It was also listed on Rolling Stone's Top 100 songs of 2007.

I say, I like it. Conor Oberst, the lead-singer of Bright Eyes, might not, but who cares. It's a decent version of a multi-tiered band and I like it. The Killers are rumored/almost confirmed to be a headliner at Lollapalooza this summer so this serves its purpose. It will for sure be a song they play at Lolla and maybe it will induce rioting.

Decide for yourself which version you like better. Here's the original.
