look up any word, like basic bitch:
A pop-rock band hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada that infuses a rather wide array of other elements into their songs.

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
Brent Wilson-Bass
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.
"Panic! At the Disco's next single will be the seventh song off of their album, "Lying is the Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off"

A really cruddy band. They led the revolution of emo, but were quickly cut down by.... themselves. Their self-mutilation led to their downfall, which is a bit ironic.

They claim to have a "unique style", but it's the same damn crud you've been listing to for years. Adding an odd instrument not conventionally used in rock does NOT make you original.

Everyone in the world: No, they are not. Led Zepplin is original. AC/DC is original. P! is a bunch of crap

ex 2: Panic! Because this band sucks

A pop/rock band popular amongst kids 12-15 (Whom In 5 years time will be ashamed to even have liked them), following the trend of new age high school punk rock where the vocalist sings by execrating the words in a retarded manner. They have no lyrical talent and need to listen to some Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Guns N Roses before they go any further.
Dude 1- Panic! at the disco wtf??? that's new music??? all these bands are just rip offs of judas priest.

Emo Kid- panic rock!!!!!!!!!!!!,wait whats judas priest????

Ah,Panic! At The Disco...the current favourates of MTV,teenage girls and less scene indie kids.
Listening to them is like being poked by a stick: it's not going to kill you,but it's fucking annoying after a while.
There is a lot of reasons to hate them (or throw a bottle at them),one being that all the members are ugly,that they are all cunts and,oh yeah, all giving blowjobs to Pete Wentz. The only people I know that like Panic! seem to be more interested in how "hot" they all are rather than the quality of the music,and they'll probably be into Cute Is What We Aim For next week.
If you think Panic! At The Disco are great,answer me this:
~Why are all their fans female?
~Why,if they are so awesome,do they get played on MTV? We all know MTV plays music that is mediocre at best.
~You like Panic! At The Disco...are you a fag/dyke?
P!ATDfan:"OMGosh,Panic! At The Disco are soo,like,emo!"
P!ATDfan:"They;re sooo,like,haWT!!!"
P!ATD:"I'm so, like, trendy! Oh I'm so COOL...uh,I mean emo"
Me:*kills P!ATD fan by slicing off head with Bouncing Souls CD*
