When your favorite team gets beaten to the sweet sounds of The Killers, then you in turn feel a bit violent yourself

SHARE When your favorite team gets beaten to the sweet sounds of The Killers, then you in turn feel a bit violent yourself

The Killers are one of the buzzy bands that seems to always be playing Saturday Night Live or producing another critically acclaimed album.

Judging by the past week, the good people who direct sporting events on television have apparently caught on to the toe-tapping sounds of Brendan Flowers & Co.

First it was FOX using them to hype postseason baseball, which didn’t last to long on the North side. And now today, the Buckeye beatdown of Michigan State played out to the soundtrack of “All These Things That I’ve Done.”

The point of all this?

We really like the Killers, but hate having their music connected with our favorite teams (Cubs and Spartans, respectively) getting crushed.
