Brandon Flowers is Offended by Green Day

Brandon Flowers picThe always opinionated Brandon Flowers has criticised the band Green Day for what he sees as their offensive anti-Americanism.

"You have Green Day and 'American Idiot'. Where do they film their DVD? -- In England," The Killers' frontman told The Word. "A bunch of kids screaming 'I don't want to be an American idiot' I saw it as a very negative thing towards Americans," he said. "It really lit a fire in me."

Explaining he was offended by the set-up, Flowers added: "You have the right to say what you want to say and what you want to write about, and I'm sure they meant it in the same way that Bruce Springsteen meant 'Born In The USA' and it was taken wrongly, but I was really offended when I saw them do that."

The singer added he felt the DVD was a bit of a a stunt. "I just thought it was really cheap," he explained. "To go to a place like England or Germany and sing that song - those kids aren't taking it the same way that he meant it. And he [Billie Joe Armstrong] knew it."

The Killers' frontman said he believed that his band's new album 'Sam's Town' is a much better representation of America. "People need to see that, really, there are the nicest people in the world here!" he declared.

"I don't know if our album makes you realise that. But I hope it's from a more positive place."

Just shut up you Brandon! You're just jealous of them because of their sucessful American Idiot AND their career for over than 17 years!! You formed your band just 3-4 years ago--so shut the f-ck up.

Im totally agree with Mr. pretty boy Brandon Flowers!

I completely agree with brandon. Calling our country idiots is very offensice to me. Although i very much enjoy green day's earlier albums, the new stuff they are doing is just awful. They are really selling out.
