Killers - Who are the real killers?

How the Killers got their band name - Base drum - Its the game of the name book coverAfter witnessing a video clip of New Order these American post punk revivalists from Las Vegas, Nevada, were struck by an idea for their band name and called their group The Killers.

In the clip 'Crystal' the New Order drummer plays a kit with a bass drum with the imaginary band name Killers written on it.

There are sources saying that the name Killers can also be seen in the New Order clip 'Touched by the Hand of God', but so far we have not been able to capture this.

Active: 2001-present, USA
