The Killers Cover ‘Is This It’ on the Strokes’ Home Turf

the killers, the strokes

During their recent U.K. tour, the Killers lovingly covered several of the territory’s most beloved acts; U2, Oasis, and New Order all received some love while they performed overseas in support of last year’s heroic Battle Born. But when the “Mr. Brightside” players took over Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Saturday (May 18), they paid tribute to five of the Big Apple’s favorite sons: the Strokes. The Killers played a minute-long rendition of “Is This It,” the weary title track off the Fab Five’s landmark 2001 debut. You might ask, “Is that it?” Yes, but it’s all that’s needed. Watch it above.
