The Killers think America is ''musically retarded''.
The 'Runaways' band are glad they were recognised as stars in the UK before getting big in their home country, because they don't like the pop songs played on US radio.
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci told The Sun newspaper: ''Breaking in the UK first was great because America is retarded musically.
''It's upside down. There's so much great music that doesn't get the attention. There's a lot of bull***t on US radio.''
Singer Brandon Flowers added: ''I start to wonder, what do adults listen to? Do they listen to what's being played on the radio?
''You should listen to something that's for you -- not about giving your virginity to your boyfriend on Saturday night. It is retarded.
''Every song is that song. And if 40-year-olds are listening to that rubbish, they're going to raise kids on it. It's not even music.''
The band have now sold over 22 million albums, and are releasing a greatest hits record, but vow to continue after some time off.
Brandon, 32, added: ''We'll have a little break then I'll make another solo album, but it's not the end for us.''
Ronnie, 37, added: ''People in their 30s or 40s are still really fruitful. And I look to those people for inspiration.
''There'll be much more music from The Killers. This first ten years has just been the start for us.''
The Killers' 'Direct Hits' album is released on November 11.
