When You Were Young: Watch how the Killers channeled a bossy influence

Music analysis channel Polyphonic dropped this delightful deep dive into the Killers track ‘When You Were Young’ and how the song off their sophomore album ‘Sam’s Town’ leaned on the influence of New Jersey rock icon Bruce Springsteen. From the chord progression to the arena rock gravitas to the song;s slide out from the chorus, the Boss really rubbed off on Brandon Flowers and the boys when they made this song that still has a lot of their signature elements with washy synths, Nevada desert big riffs, and lyrics that speak vivid memories we hold close.

Watch Lauren’s exclusive backstage chat with Brandon Flowers before the Killers crushed it at Lollaplaooza.
