Rockers The Killers are determined to be more successful than U2 - insisting the Irish band will have to surrender their place at the top of the music "pedestal".
Frontman Brandon Flowers admits he is a big fan of the One hitmakers, but feels it is time for the ageing musicians to be replaced as one of the world's most successful bands.
And the singer is convinced that The Killers will be able to topple the legendary group.
He says, "(We can replace U2 on the top) pedestal. They're getting old. You know there's going to be a couple of songs on (their) new record you're just going to love. But there's gotta be... I dunno. It feels like it's time."

Somebody told me they'll need at least 4 good songs if they hope to replace U2.Something tells me a middling tennis star from Vegas can't surpass the output of Bono and Co.He's probably right about the new U2 album though.

Pretty arrogant if you ask me. They'll need another 30 years of hits and experience to even come CLOSE to u2's success.
