Little kids on iTunes think they know music. DO NOT begin to say something is wrong with this song or The Kills in general. I know great music and this is great. They have amazing voices and an awesome beat. This song has been featured on a fashion show and was recently listed under "Blender" Magazine's top songs to download (being number 4).
Short version: This is an amazing song and band. You will purchase this and more from The Kills, if you have at least half of a brain.
This is their best work yet. It's a major departure from their earlier work which was much gritier and had a blues influence. This is an electronic influenced track so it's kind of a shock at first but it is the best electronic track I've heard in a while so it's pretty great to me. Just to pre-empt any haters out there who dislike it just cause its electronic. All artists have to explore new territory eventually or else they just end up repeating themselves and lose creativity, and this band has creativity in spades.
Finally a new tune...
This sounds a little different than their earlier stuff, but when I heard it on the radio for the first time, I immediately knew it was them. Great groove. If the rest of the album is as good as Fever, it'll be one great disc.
If you like The Kills, check out Sons and Daughters. Similar sound, nice and raw.
Just giving it 4 stars to temper my excitement while I await the new album. When I first heard a song by The Kills on the radio, I bought their two albums right away. Can't wait for this one.
thank god it's finally available on US itunes! Now can we get some other UK bands on this itunes please.
The dark sound from this single already has me excited for the album, I'd consider it already an improvement from no wow and hope the fever spreads. A different sound from a genre that can start to sound the same to me.

These two are hands-down the most entertaining duo in rock music today. Forget the "is she or isn't she" relationship between the White Stripes when they first came out, on stage these two will give you that squirmy "that's just wrong, and yet I can't look away" feeling every time. I love it and want more!
Great music...horrible voices...
Welcome back to the revolution!
The most interesting, innovative band in pop music right now. It's been too long since we've had anything new to feed on and I think I feel a fever coming on. If you haven't heard The Kills, then you haven't heard what is possible in electro/pop/rock. Seriously, this is some great stuff.
Can't wait for the new album.
