Here is darkly funny sketch with Jimmy and the guys in 2006 when they were promoting their second album ‘Sam’s Town’.


Then there was that time they played strip poker on the late night comedy show. 

For his birthday, Brandon Flowers and company came in did a tribute in song to the former ‘Man Show’ dude. Oh this death pattern continues…

Every year since ‘06, the Killers have released a lighthearted Christmas song for charity. Two years ago, they collaborated with Kimmel on a song called “Joel the Lump of Coal”. Here is the animated results.


Last year, KImmel invited his celebrity pals as well as the Killers over to do a charity shong for the anti-Aids campaign. The song “We’re Going to Hell” featured Kimmel,  Bono as the Devil, Julia Roberts, Kristen Bell, DJ Khaled, The Killers, Channing Tatum, Neil Patrick Harris and Halsey. It was over-the-top but sends a wonderful message to fight an awful disease.
