    Ever wondered what Mr Brightside, arguably The Killers' biggest hit and one of the biggest hits of this century so far, would sound like if it was written by blink-182

    If you have (or even if you haven't) then you can now find out, with YouTube user SugarpillCovers taking The Killers' lead singer Brandon Flowers' vocals and mixing in some of blink-182's biggest riffs, best bass lines and craziest drum fills.

    The two bands have never really been compared before, but both are still doing their thing. Both have made some of the most fun music of the last 20-30 years, so it isn't a surprise that this mash-up works as well as it does - but still, it's a brilliant idea.

    The track sounds just as good as the original, with a little bit of a harder edge - blink-182 are known for their frenetic riffs, so it sounds more like a punk song than the polished alternative rock song that the original is, and honestly, we could see this going down at a party just as well.

    Listen to the mash-up below - we'd love to see this played live.
