Do you agree?
In an interview with The Sun (via NME), Brandon Flowers of The Killers said that the music played on the radio in the United States is "retarded".
The band talked about making a name for themselves in the UK before becoming successful in their home country.
Drummer Ronnie Vanucci said: "Breaking in the UK first was great because America is retarded musically. It's upside down. There's so much great music that doesn't get the attention. There's a lot of bullshit on US radio.'"
Flowers added: "I start to wonder, what do adults listen to? Do they listen to what's being played on the radio? You should listen to something that's for you - not about giving your virginity to your boyfriend on Saturday night. It is retarded. Every song is that song. And if 40-year-olds are listening to that rubbish, they're going to raise kids on it. It's not even music."
