Imagine Dragons frontman, Dan Reynolds, almost became an FBI agent before making it big with his band.

In an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, Reynolds discusses how he toyed with the idea of becoming a member of the country's premier law enforcement agency. Until, that is, his mother intervened by asking him a simple question:

"Do you think you would be OK if one day you got in a predicament and you had to shoot someone and you killed them?" she asked.

Reynolds decided he wouldn't be OK with this and abandoned his FBI aspirations to pursue music.

"Kill-someone-or-be-killed is such a heavy concept," Reynolds explained. Now, he says he's happy that these days all he has to think about is: "Should we play 'Radioactive' first tonight, or should we play 'It's Time' first?' Those are much easier conversations.”
