Ian McCulloch spoke with much aplomb about what he feels is the rightful place in musical history for this standout track from the Ocean Rain album. "'The Killing Moon' is more than a song, it's about everything," the Echo & the Bunnymen frontman told Rolling Stone. "It's up there with 'Suzanne,' by Leonard Cohen, 'Blowin' in the Wind,' 'In My Life.' Every time I sing it I feel like, 'Whoa, something just happened there.'" McCulloch maintains that the rest of the Bunnymen shared this feeling about the song. "It's hard enough to get a band to agree and say, 'That's the one.' But with 'The Killing Moon,' everyone gets it" -- especially younger generations who discovered the baleful tune after it appeared in the 2001 cult classic film Donnie Darko.
