The 2000s: The Killers — Hot Fuss (w/ Sarah MacDonald)

In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by culture writer Sarah MacDonald (@sarahsmacdonald, to discuss The Killers’ 2004 debut Hot Fuss. Another Meet Me In The Bathroom-era breakthrough sees our hosts bring Sarah back because The Killers require a certain level of cool they can’t reach alone. That’s a long way to have come for some kids from Las Vegas sneaking in to UNLV to practice and record. Find out more about how The Killers came to be, how Brandon Flowers’ former band influenced his writing and The Killers’ unique sound, and which Hot Fuss track is the millennial Stairway To Heaven on this week’s podcast.
