There’s no end to the appeal of “Mr Brightside,” the song of bleary nights out and responsible for many rusty voices. It also makes for excellent radio.

Suffice it to say, it sounds pretty good, and the euphoria of it all is still intact.
The Killers’ hit is 14 years old, but it’s still as popular as ever. There’s only been a handful of occasions where “Mr. Brightside” has left the UK Top 100.
The band is also performing at the AFL Grand Final, and posted a photo from its soundcheck on Thursday.
No surprises on what tune will get the crowd going.
