word of mouth.
Panic at the Disco!
Is a completely orignial creation
a little bit of techno,
with half a cup of emotion
a gallon of sex talk
just a hint of foul language
and the hottest and most beautifuly sounding
Blend well for 2 full cd listenings.
Serve to all your friends who listen
to fall out boy, switchfoot, hellogoodbye, dashboard confessionals, and watch strongbad.
And wha BAMB!
Although there way famous now, they are still cool
young and totally awesome...
Only like one of the best freakin bands ever.
Yes I know Im un-orignial.
But its the truth.
<3 Always Angela~
They currently have one album out, entitled "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" which is split down the middle(this split marked by track 8, "Intermission") with the first containing very electronica-influenced futuristic sounding songs, and the second containing songs that sound older by means of use of vaudeville piano and accordion
The current line-up of Panic(as they are often abbreviated to) consists of:
Brendon Urie-Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Accordian, and organ
Ryan Ross-Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Accordian, Organ
Spencer Smith-Drums and Percussion
The lyrics are written by guitarist Ryan Ross and are often more reminiscent of prose than traditional lyics or poetry, and contain many allusions to various facets of pop culture, in particular the writings of Portland satirical author Chuck Palahniuk. These allusions include:
-The second track of their album is called "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage" which is a line taken from Palahniuk's novel "Survivor"
-The sixth track on the album, entitled "Time To Dance", is said to be one big reference to Palahniuk's "Invisible Monsters"
-The song "London Beckoned Songs about Money Written By Machines" contains lyrics that start with "Just For the record, the weather today is...", this is verbiage very often used by the narrator of Palahniuk's novel "Diary"
Currently(2006-07) they've developed a large following, due in large part to the success of their single "I Write Sins Not Tragedies". This following is primarily composed of adolescents in the age brackets of 14-17, often the type of people which have widely been given the somewhat-derogatory nickname of "scene" or "emo". And as with most bands associated with, through their own doing or not, "Emo" or "Scene", the band experiences very much criticism and hatred, even if for the fact that these self-proclaimed critics really dislike them for the mere sake of rebellion.
The other 20% are cool, intelligent people who appreciate good music and want MTV to die, and don't listen to the radio either. They know all of Panic's songs (from both their amazing yet extremely different albums, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out and Pretty. Odd.) and know all the lyrics as well as their meaning. They don't listen to Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance unless their genuinely like them, which would be because of their (good) older material.
Panic at the Disco blend techno and rock with theatrical touches in their first album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. Contrary to popular belief, this was something that had never been done before. At the September 2005 release of this album, it did not get much attention from the media or really any commercial recognition at all. In early 2006, the video for their second single, I Write Sins Not Tragedies, was played on MTV's Total Requests.
Is this enough proof that this band was NOT originally meant to be "liked" by ignorant "fans" who like one song?
In March 2008 they released their Beatles-esque second album, Pretty. Odd. This experimental and risky album did lose some of the original fans, but true fans ignored the fact that it was very different from the first album and gave it a chance.
Overall, PATD are an extremely original band whose less popular songs (NOT I WRITE SINS NOT TRAGEDIES) need to be considered.
Real fan: Really? What's your favorite song by them?
Common "fan": Well... everyone knows THAT... I Write Sins Not Tragedies!
Real fan: And do you know anything ELSE?
Common "fan": No. No one does. Do they even have other songs?
Real fan: *shoots*
Usually only known for their good looks, not their music.
Looking past that will show their exquisite lyrics, and great abilities as a band.
Me - wow, you are retarded. your mind consists of only a black hole, leading to nowhere.
cool chick: yeah they're cool i saw them in concert with blocparty.
trendy chick: huh what's blocparty?
cool chick: *thinking on a way to leave*
*radio turns on playing i write sins not tragedies*
trendy chick: OMG my favorite song everrrr.
cool chick: You have ruined this band for me.
I Write Sins Not Tragedies
Build God The We'll Talk
Time To Dance
The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage
Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can HAve With Out Taking Her Clothes Off
Person 2: Yea too bad preps and other mainsteam listeners are ruining it....
They don't really sound like fall out boy, in terms of their style etc. For one you can actually here what the lead of Panic! is saying, but I must say they have the same tone. I disagree with people saying they are un-talented or un-creative with music and lyrics. Their lyrics are quite sophisticated and have meaning if you listen without the constant thought of 'emo' going through your head. See the meaning of emo and then listen to Panic!, morons.
Also, the only credit they get is from their song 'I write sins not tragedies', but as another bloke said, people get annoyed because other people like the music and the band is getting some credit they deserve.
