Kings of Leon recently sat down with KROQ (a Radio.com station) to reminisce about the very first time they heard their song on the radio.
“I was in Long Beach. I was in my car coming home from practice and I heard it, and I just screamed all the way home.”
Back before Brandon Flowers and the Killers stormed onto super-stardom, the singer was just another aspiring frontman sitting outside a local convenience store the very first time he heard his band played on the radio.

Hearing the band’s new music on the radio is a very different experience than it was when the band first started for frontman Patrick Stump.
A band can be anywhere when they hear their song for the first time. In a car. In a store. Or, as is the case for Thirty Seconds To Mars, be in the parking lot of a Home Depot.
