The Killers are cool with Romney liking them

Unlike Tom Morello (who seemed to want to inflict mortal harm on Paul Ryan for liking him) The Killers are totally okay with Mitt Romney liking them.

"Anyone's allowed to like us," Killers bassist Mark Stoermer tells Rolling Stone. "If it's just about music, I guess it's not a negative thing."

.... "He's, I guess, a guy and he listens to music and happens to like us," he said. "That's fine."

The Killers precocious frontman, Brandon Flowers, is also Mormon.

If you remember, Tom Morello penned a fairly hateful response to Paul Ryan after hearing the Veeper liked Rage Against the Machine.

I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta "rage" in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he's not raging against is the privileged elite he's groveling in front of for campaign contributions.

Here's the Killers' new track.

And Tom Morello, being all really good at what he does.
