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"

The mystery of what Brandon Urie is panicking at discos about is somewhat of a mystery, some possible answers are:
1 There is some sort of fire (be it a grease fire or otherwise) is running rampantly through the alleged disco,
2 Brandon has a severe case of monophobia, and since no one has listened to disco music since a certain Steve Dahl's Disco Demolition at the White Sox stadium
3 Urie had a very high fever once at a disco, he was sweating tremendously and it wouldn't break, thus panic ensued.
4 He heard his own music in a disco
Do I really need to include an example? Oh, crap it has to include the term Panic! At The Disco

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.
Panic! At The Disco Fan: OMG! I LOVE THIS BAND!!!!111one! THEY ARE SOOOOO 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

Fall Out Boy's alter-ego. Only less talented. They have no musical knowledge whatsoever, so they sing about kinky sex and such.
Person 1: Dude, did you see Panic! At the Disco live?
Person 2: Are you for cereal? No, I was busy listening to real music. Like Sinai Beach. Or The Locust.

Probably one of the most god awful bands ever created. A very emo/shitty sounding band that only 14-year-old MySpacey girls listen to. Right on up there with Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights, and The Used.
I'm gonna get a shirt with my name in Panic! At the Disco!

i.e. Lauren! At the Disco

A Piece of shit EMO band that sucks horrible cocks. Only little faggots enjoy this type of music and I must say I am shocked to find when i look up britney spears i see nothing but hateful definitions but then when i look at this piece of shit band calling them selves artist i see nothing but praise. Is this site run by a bunch of emo gamers or what?
