  4. 4

  5. 5

    I love the Killers



  6. 6

    Awesome.



  7. 7

    it blows.



  8. 8

    Yeah, not really feeling this at all.



  9. 9

    wow…the killers, an already shitty and terrible excuse for a band who does more posing than playing actual music covering a terrible song by a shitty 70's rock band that was the worst bookend to the decade that i can imagine…who fucking cares



  10. 10

    who is this now? he's kind of cute, a bit skinny thu. But still do able!



  11. 11

    pretty much just butchered my alll time favourite song.



  12. 12

    Ugh..It's fucking awful. I can't believe they thought this was even remotely close to good. EPIC FAIL.



  13. 13

    Are you kidding??? That f-ing sux!!!



  14. 14

    i love them! everything they do is amazing!



  15. 15

    That was so incredibly horrible. I liked the remake of Boys of Summer (not sure of the band), so I am not against Eagles' covers, but this was just torture to listen to.

    I like it. I didn't like the song during the first 30 sec but I let it play bc I didn't feel like clicking over but it grew on me. Very nice



  17. 17

    Sucks more than the original, but we shouldn't expect anything less from such a terrible band.



  18. 18

    No offense to anyone or any band, but can we please just leave this song to die with respect? Please? Just, let go . . .



  19. 19

    i like original better ;P



  20. 20

    Eh. The music is pretty cool but the vocals are lack luster. Brandon just doesn't carry the song as well as Don Henley did. Flowers makes it sound like a cheesy lounge act.



  21. 21

    Love love love it



  22. 22

    do not like it



  23. 23

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD – You'll have to care, because now once again, we'll be subjected to listening to "hotel California" every 17.7 minutes every day, until we want to rupture our own eardrums. Don't know if you were a kid in the eighties, but that song was old when I came out of the womb. I knew the lyrics before entered this world. But alas! Ministry, Black Flag, NIN, Front 242, Nietzerebb- all came along to drown out the sound. My mind had bad thoughts about the Killers for a minute there.



  24. 24

    meh.. quite boring



  25. 25

    This qualifies as "fabulous" in your opinion, Perez..? Really? I mean, really?
    It's not fabulous, not fresh, not better than the Eagles or even as good - blech



  26. 26

    I like it



  27. 27

    …partially because I want to fuck him



  28. 28

    Oh my God..



  29. 29

    I like it a lot, it has that tropicla feel of some of their songs on Day & Age like "I Can't Stay."

    Re: FaeRae_86

    you know that you're the only person i dont hate around here



  31. 31

    Love it! Anybody up for salsa dancing?!



  32. 32

    Terrible



  33. 33

    love it! brandon can do no wrong in my eyes.



  34. 34

    he looks hott.



  35. 35

    i hate it.worst cover ive heard of this song



  36. 36

    He's cute–is he gay??



  37. 37

    Re: brainchild – No he's married to a woman



  38. 38

    Re: buffymybasset

    Well, he's mormon. Doesn't necessarily mean he's not gay.

  39. d-day says – reply to this


    39

    Lucy, you got some 'splaining to do !!



  40. 40

    yeah I don't really know what I think of this but I do love his voice.



  41. 41

    Not as good as the original!



  42. 42

    Gaahhh it sound like someone doing a karaoke to a midi track. No me gusta!



  43. 43

    blasphemy! ricky martin does the eagles? The killers are a sad example of the marketing achine that used to be the recording industry. They suck! and always have!



  44. 44

    I won't lie, I absolutely love The Killers.
    Sadly, this song should have been left alone. I'm not diggin' it at all.



  45. 45

    so they're just a cover band now?



  46. 46

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD – what rock did you climb from under douche?? and do something with that hair, coolio called he wants his hair back!! talk about unoriginal and I am sure the band could careless what the heck you think!!



  47. 47

    I really like it!



  48. 48

    I like it. It's not brilliant, but it's a fresh take on a good song.
    Probably won't care though if I never hear it again.



  49. 49

    Re: FaeRae_86 – Hi Fae! That was good!



  50. 50

    Are you kidding me? The music is nice, but that horrible warbling vocal kills it.



  51. 51

    Love the Killer. Hate the remake



  52. 52

    gross…. could this song be any more OVER-exposed…the killers = losers



  53. 53

    In case you people didn't realise, the song's meant to sound 'tropical'. It's for the Rythms Del Mundo album, noobz. -.- I guess you can't expect intelligent comments on PerezHilton.com.



  54. 54

    Brandon's hot. Yes. Killers are pretty good. yes.
    But you CANNOT redo a classic song by the Eagles. Sorry. Not possible. Especially with that cheesy tropical sound. ICK



  55. 55

    i like it!



  56. 56

    the killers' verzh doesn't have that cloying 'soft-rock' feel to it that the orig did. Don henley and crew can suck it; brandon made it sound way better.



  57. 57

    Personally I like the Killers. I have always hated this song, original version or no but I give them credit for trying this with this style for this album.Personally, I think I like the Keane version of Under Pressure (that was also done for this record) a little better but I don't think this is "eardrum-bleeding"-ly bad like some of you seem to. I just think that is a bit much. No reason to fight or get angry with each other. It's just opinions and it is just a song.



  58. 58

    That was REALLY, REALLY, REALLY bad…..we have not gone far enough into the future for someone to remake a classic…..



  59. 59

    I think it's pretty good. Good work!

    Those who haven't heard Rhythms Del Mundo before, you should know all of their songs sound "mexican" not just his one, thats what RDM's about!



  60. 60

    Gencane you're a freaking idiot! This doesn't sound Mexican at all. It has a Caribbean sound to it.



  61. 61

    Oh you funny people! It's a classic song that had a bit of a maker-over, enjoy it, feel it and sway to it for a little! Everything with you lot on here is always so negative - if Perez did not tell you about the song, you most would never have heard about the song or the album anyway. Silly people.



  62. 62

    I like The Killers but they ruined a perfectly good song.



  63. 63

    "… or this could be hell…" Srsly? WTF? Leave the original alone. Kthnxbai.



  64. 64

    I freaking LOVE IT!!!!! The Killers rock!!!!!!! I love BFlow, I have his named tattooed on my arm, I can't wait to see them in Vegas on Sept 19th!!!! The killers kick ass!!!!!



  65. 65

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD

    "Shitty" 70's rock band? Hotel California was and still is one of the greatest rock songs ever. People like you who go and post ignorant comments clearly do not know what proper rock music is.
    This cover is never going to be brilliant, it sounds Mexican- but you have to hand it to the killers, its a pretty hard song to cover. But lets not focus on the negative- they have many brilliant songs like Mr Brightside, Human, Somebody Told Me and they actually play their own instruments. They are one of the few proper rock bands left.
    And by the way, i "fucking" care. Have a nice day.



  66. 66

    Ok? Not feeln it either….



  67. 67

    so AMAZING!!!!I love the killers!!!Brandon is the best!!!!!!!=))))))



  68. 68

    Hmm…not feelin it…



  69. 69

    i love it! awesome remake! the killers are simply incredible.



  70. 70

    The Killers have now introduced me to The Eagles. I love it.
    Also, I love how many up to date Killers posts there are on here. Keep it up Perez.



  71. 71

    I'm not a very big fan of the Eagles, but Hotel California is an awesome song; more importantly, it was a huge hit when it came out and a lot of people still love it today. Now, perhaps I'm completely wrong, but the whole idea of remaking a song is to add your unique style to a traditional song in order to claim originality, introduce a new take on the original, or blow people's minds with your musical ability in making the song actually better than the original.

    The Killers does none of this. Hotel California, remade, sounds stale, despite being played by a younger and fresher band. Their supposed "twist" on the original is not strong enough to make it sound any different– more than that, it actually makes the song sound more campy (and I didn't think that was possible). Lesson learned: next time we want to play with classic songs, go balls out or nothing. The Killers either played it safe or picked the wrong song to play with, and the result isn't good.



  72. 72

    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I did the makeup for one of their videos and these guys didn't even pay us! I guess they thought that they were doing us a favor by letting us just be in their presence. Douche bags…..didn't even offer us concert tickets or pose for a photo! Not cool at all!!!



  73. 73

    I don't "hate" it, but I think he should have SUNG it more. At least the earlier verses felt like he was just going through the motions. It picks up a bit towards the end. Better there. But yeah, why the dull half-awake vibe for most of it?



  74. 74

    don henley and the eagles version is the only one. these guys suck. if the great don henley was dead, he would be spinning in his grave….this version SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  75. 75

    That was the worst ever. I love the eagles, and I love Hotel California.. Leave that song to the people who originally sang it Killers. You sounded awful. stick to your pop rock or whatever it is you call your music.



  76. 76

    WTF!? I was expecting much more, much better from these guys. I hope Don Henley kicks their asses! I almost lost my lunch listening to this crap. I wish all these groups would just let the classics be classics and come up with their own stuff. The Eagles had it right from the get go…don't need these young bucks fouling it up.



  77. 77

    IT SUCKS!!!!!!! :(

    NO ONE ~ I REPEAT ~ NO ONE SHOULD FUCK WITH THE EAGLES ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS SONG!!!!!

    IT SOUNDS LIKE A CHEAP TIJUANA STREET BAND!!!!!!!!! :(



  78. 78

    why? why? ruin good classic music! it sounds like something from DWTS…U SUCK KILLERS!



  79. 79

    The Killers are amazing! I just saw them at lollapalooza. This is so great



  80. 80

    Wow… karaoke gone bad!



  81. 81

    What a disrespect to the best of the best The Eagles!



  82. 82

    I love it.The nervousness jiggy in his voice gives me chills everywhere! I do him.haha.



  83. 83

    Where's the Creativity? Where's the Talent? Make NEW music…give us something amazing that we haven't heard before! MEMO to Music Industry: STOP re-doing classic songs.



  84. 84

    omg i love it i love it its like salsa , the eagles and the killers combined !!!!! sheer heaven!!!



  85. 85

    I believe it is a charity album.



  86. 86

    I won't even listen to it. DISHONORING A GREAT SONG BY COVERING IT WHEN IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE COVERED.



  87. 87



  88. 88

  89. 89
