The Killers didn't really have a shot. After a couple lineup changes, and being turned down by multiple record label for not being good enough, things weren't looking good for them. But they eventually signed with a small indie label form the UK, where they had decent success there. After the US caught wind of The KIllers success, Def Jam signed them to a record deal, and they soon after released their first album, Hot Fuss. So after selling 7.5 million copies of the first album, after topping the Billboard charts for weeks, even months, after getting nominated for a Grammy, and winning a couple VMAs, it looks like The Killers got the last laugh. If you pop in the album Hot Fuss, and you skip past the hits, like Somebody Told Me, Mr. Brightside, and Smile Like You Mean It, you'll eventually come to track eight, Change Your Mind, which in my opinion, is the best track off the alternative rock band's debut.
