The Killers, “Runaways” | Are these dorks really gonna double-down on the homuncular Boss shtick? Well, alright, as long as they’re cool with the word “Springsteen” appearing in every single review of their shit ever, and probably not in a flattering way. This is Americana of distinctly cheapo manufacture; it sounds like a third-generation knock-off, a song about songs about songs about America. It’s pretty late and I’m not thinking right, so I’m going to follow my strong impulse to call this track an ice-cold burger.
