Album: Day & AgeReleased: 2008
Frontman Brandon Flowers told The Quietus
: "I was trying to write like MGMT. And it's nothing like MGMT, it never turns out that way. With 'Sam's Town' I was trying to write a song like the Arctic Monkeys and of course it's nothing like them. It turned out to be this big boisterous thing. But that's cool. It's actually a good tactic, I guess."
The album title takes its name from a lyric in both this mid-tempo number and "The World We Live In." Flowers told Rolling Stone that he didn't really know why they named their record Day & Age. He added: "You wait for moments. I just wait for it to come, and I knew that that was right when I had it."
