"When You Were Young" is a song by American rock band the Killers. It was released on September 18, 2006 as the lead single from their second studio album, Sam's Town (2006). The song was written and produced by The Killers and co-produced by Flood and Alan Moulder. The song has proven to be one of the Killers' most successful singles, peaking at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as their first number one on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart. Only "Mr. Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me" would stay longer on the chart and have more pop airplay.
