The Victims: A Look at the Killers’ Crazy-Passionate Fanbase

FUSE TV - The Victims: A Look at the Killers’ Crazy-Passionate Fanbase

Let's start at the beginning, shall we? When considering music fandoms, the first groups that come to mind for us are the ones that veer young: Taylor Swift's Swifties; Justin Bieber's Beliebers; Beyoncé's Beyhive. The Killers are the odd men out in this group but have one of the biggest and most active fan groups around. Why? That's for you to decide, but the numbers don't lie.

Who are the Victims?

Per Urban Dictionary:

"The official fanclub of the US rock band "The Killers". Fans that know every single song including demos, album tracks, b sides and Christmas songs, not just "Mr Brightside" or "Human."

Will usually reject 'Hot Fuss' as the best album and say 'Sam's Town' is instead. Don't just love them because of Brandon Flowers. Usually found on The Victims site, in Twitter communities or gigs. Usually noticiable by the official Victims shirt. Probably the most devoted group of fans..."
