10 years of Mr. BrightsideOn September 29, but 10 years ago The Killers released this song on a limited number of CDs and vinyl records in the UK. ”Mr. Brightside” is actually the first song the band ever wrote.

"It came from this cassette of ideas that Dave gave me, and one of them was the ‘Mr. Brightside’ riff. I was able to slap a chorus and some lyrics onto it, and I knew I liked it. But it wasn’t until we first tried it out with a drummer that I knew it was special. We went to the guy’s house and showed him the song, and I got the goosebumps after that. […] Lyrically, it’s about an odd girlfriend of mine. All the emotions in the song are real. When I was writing the lyrics, my wounds from it were still fresh. I am Mr. Brightside! But I think that’s the reason the song has persisted - because it’s real. People pick up on those things. And that goes all the way down to the production; we recorded it in a couple of hours, but it just sounds right, you know?" - Brandon Flowers
