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 band that used to be amazing, and was actually my favorite band, until they turned into pot smoking, sellouts.

A Las Vegas band, signed by Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy. Also, a terrible excuse of an "original" band that derives their "theatrics" and "style" from the emo-scene and the Britpop era in the 90s. In other words, complete and utter fucking crap.
Emo girl: OMGZ! Did you hear Panic! At The Disco?
Me: Huh? You mean that band who likes to completely rip off other bands and whine that they're NOT EMO? Yeah. I've heard of them.........and they fucking suck. Now go brood in a dark room and cut yourself, you insignificant, unoriginal pig.
Emo girl: *RUNS AWAY CRYING...

A shitty band. A bunch of homos that play shitty music in a very shitty way. My opinion, my own shitty entry.

PAtD = Sucks.
Panic! At The Disco is such a bad band they make me want to cut my wrists and kill kittens while burning trees and pissing on the Alamo.
