The Bravery vs. The Killers

107.7 The End keeps talking about this silly little spat between The Bravery and The Killers...

The Bravery, who last week took some jabs from Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, have a few zingers of their own to throw right back. Last week, Flowers told MTV that the Bravery "are signed because we're a band," and accused them of ripping off their sound. The Bravery is now firing back, accusing the Killers of ripping off their image in order to energize their stage presence. Guitarist Michael Zacharin says, "If you have seen them live, they are incredibly boring. You remember what they used to look like, then people started comparing them to us and suddenly they got a stylist and Brandon frosted his hair and he's buying the cute pink jacket." Singer Sam Endicott is taking the high road, sort of, saying that he doesn't want to talk bad about Flowers "because it's like hitting a girl [or] like picking on a kid in a wheelchair."

Ummmm...guys, guys...calm down now. You both have ripped off countless many bands before your times. Originality isn't why anybody likes either of you. Unfortunately, I didn't really like it in the '80's and I'm not really that keen on it now that it's a schlocky throwback schtick. And Zacharin, please lay off of Brandon's frosted hair and pink jacket because even you have to admit he looks pretty cute in it.
