The Killers don't know the meaning of downtime. On a day off during their U.K. tour, the Vegas rockers recorded "I Feel It in My Bones" featuring Ryan Pardey on vocals. The band's seventh consecutive Christmas single takes the form of a smoky fist-pumper straight out of an 1980s alleyway, and a sequel to their 2007 track "Don't Shoot Me, Santa." You can preview the song today in honor of World AIDS Day.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
