When the Kills came out, they had the unfortunate luck of have a band name that was only a couple letters off a the more commercially popular Killers. Killers fans came out in droves to accuse the band of trying to milk off the Killers success. Those who bothered to stick around and listen for a bit, discovered they were a very different breed of band. They fell more into the White Stripes world rather than the world of 80s throwback dance. But that only opened another can of worms. Now, White Stripes fans were giving them crap for trying to rip off the Stripes sound. When Jack White recruited The Kills singer, Allison Mosshart, to join his Dead Weather wrecking crew, he legitimized them. Ten years down the road, the Stripes are no more. The Killers are less relevant than the 80s music their mimicking…and The Kills are still rocking.
