I didn’t realize The Killers were such fans of U2. I’m actually a little disappointed because I really love this Killers guitar solo. Now I can only think of “Miracle Drug” when I hear it. After doing some more research I actually found out that Flowers was in fact influenced by U2 when writing “All These Things That I’ve Done” and then admits to lifting the bass line from David Bowie‘s “Slow Burn”. Check it out!
“When that one was cooking I was really into U2’s ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’. I thought that was an amazing comeback for them, and I was blown away by how many great songs were on that record. There’s an earnestness, spirit soul to U2, and I was trying to channel that. I wanted a song that stood up to those songs. We also took the bassline from a David Bowie song called ‘Slow Burn’, from ‘Heathen’, although enough time has probably passed now that I think he probably won’t sue us!” – from NME
The Killers and Bowie. Mr Brightside and Queen Bitch, right down to calling a cab. And the stomach feeling sick/small.

Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll by the Killers is pretty much directly lifted from David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust
