The Killers Premiere "Human" Video

October 16, 2008 5:20 PM ET

The Killers released their new video for "Human" today, the first single from their upcoming Day & Age. In the clip, the Killers set up their gear in a desert setting that's straight out of every John Ford film ever made and perform the song. There are also cougars and Siberian tigers roaming the rocks, as well as massive lighting rigs even though they're performing during daytime in the desert. The other big revelation: Brandon Flowers has shaved his moustache since leaving Sam's Town. Day & Age is out November 25th, the same week as Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy and Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
