So sayeth Brandon Flowers of the Killers.

He tells the U.K. magazine New Musical Express: “You have Green Day and ‘American Idiot.’ Where do they film their DVD? In England. … A bunch of kids screaming, ‘I don’t want to be an American idiot’ — I saw it as a very negative thing towards Americans. It really lit a fire in me.”

I don’t like the Killers all that much — or Green Day, for that matter — but bully for Flowers.
