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 was once praised by their home base fans for having such original music and rockin out their own way. however, their home base fans seemed to have been replaced with richy riches that can afford to buy 13 tickets to the panic! at the disco show and sing along to i write sins not tragedies and stand there the rest of the concert.
New Fan of P!ATD: Like, oh em gee! that one guy in panic! at the disco is sooo hot!!! isn't is name pete wentz? i cant wait to meet him at the concert. im going to look so scene!
Home Base P!ATD fan: uh.. you mean ryan? the guitarist..of panic at the disco? pete is the bassist of fall out boy. they look nothing alike. ..
New Fan: oh yeah him... oh... YAY!

A really unique band style and lyric wise. Very catchy and fun. Their lyrics are very artsy, smart, and..I don't know the word for it, but just really amazing. They're very classy with their style too. They're different and really good.

Also, I don't get why everyone cares that Panic! at the Disco blew up like this. Just because they're played on MTV and the radio doesn't mean they suck balls now. So when you heard them on purevolume and myspace, they were good, but now that you hear the same exact songs on the radio, they suck and you hate them? Please. Get lives; there are bigger things to worry about then your favorite band blowing up so big.
Stupid Arrogant Fan: Ugh, Panic! at the Disco sucks now that they're getting a little bit more deserved recognition. All their fans are now poseurs. Now, Im going to search purevolume and myspace for hours just to find another band and support them just so I can hate them once they blow up. Sounds like fun!

Normal, has common sense person: Get a Life. Honestly.

A band hailing from Las Vegas, that sounds like a dancey-poppier version of Fall Out Boy, only 10 x more repetative. Discovered by Pete Wentz OF Fall Out Boy.

After the hatred between Pete Wentz and Brandon Flowers (the Killers), Panic! released the song "London Beckoned Songs About Money Written By Machines" with the lyrics:

<i>"Stop stalling, make a name for yourself.
Boy you better put your pen to paper, charm your way out.
If you talk you better walk you better back your shit up,
with more than good hooks while you're all under the gun.
Start talking "a sensationalist",
Only slightly clever to just a certain extent.
If you talk, you better walk, you better keep your mouth shut
With more than good hooks while you're all under the gun."</i>

Taking a stab at Brandon for being unoriginal, after the release of the Killers' song "Under The Gun", which was released only in the United Kingdom.

Which is incredibly ironic, because had it not been for Pete Wentz, the Panic! would be nowhere. And considering the fact that they're basically a creation from Pete's own pen, the pure hypocrisy of this statement is nauseating.
All of the old Panic! At The Disco fans believe that they're better than the new ones for discovering them "first".

All of the new Panic! fans are dillusional, and believe they've been fans from the beginning.

Everyone forces themselves to like them because of the catchy name and because of the fact that they most likely adore Fall Out Boy.

A state of mass frenzied anxiety at a disco. Often there will be a rush for the exit, with the resulting stampede trampling people underfoot.

Alternatively, it also applies to when a person has-
a) a panic attack at a disco
b) a drug-induced psychosis, resulting in panic, at a disco.
-Man, did you hear about the panic at the disco? The whole place burnt down! Thankfully everyone got out OK.

-What a tool. He took some speed and in the end had a panic at the disco.

Completely over-rated. They were old almost a year ago. But all the scenesters don't really care. It went from the real fans to the Abercrombie & Fitch crowd. And somewhere inbetween, lost it's value.
1.
Scene girl: "I LOVE Panic!"
Me: "Name two songs that haven't been released as singles."
Scene girl: "Uhhh..."
Me: "Thought so."

2.
People from TV: "This new band, Panic! At The Disco... blah blah blah."
Me: "They aren't new to us real fans. Of course, though, they're new to you kids who never listen to anything BUT the singles."

*Quote from Myspace*
Scene kid: "Sarah! At The Disco"
Me: Don't be so fucking stupid.

An amazing band. The Beatles of the 21st century. A band most people recognize by "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" and "Nine in the Afternoon". Most of their publicity comes from those two songs, and people who only like those songs consider themselves fans, though they aren't real fans like those of us who know the names of ALL the other songs and like those too. Not only do we know the songs, we know the band. Brendon Boyd Urie, George Ryan Ross III, Jon Jacob Walker, and Spencer James Smith V are the four musically gifted members of this band, rapidly gaining popularity from their lates album.

REAL fans like A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, the band's first album, for such songs as, But It's Better if You Do, Lying is the Most Fun a Girl can have Without Taking her Clothes Off, Build God Then We'll Talk, and Camisado. These songs helped make up a great album.

The second album released by the band is Pretty. Odd. This is when the band changed their name from Panic! At the Disco, to Panic at the Disco, because they said they did not want to over-load their public with punctuation. This album is characterized by such songs as, Nine in the Afternoon, That Green Gentleman, Pas De Cheval, and I have Friends in Holy Spaces. This album is the latest one, though the real fans wait on bated breath for the next one.
Kid 1: Hey! Who is that AMAZINGLY AMAZING band playing?

Kid 2: What have you been living under a rock man!?!?!? It's the best band ever, Panic at the Disco!

A band formed in Las Vegas in 2004-2005. Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy signed them to Fueled By Ramen/DanceDecay Records. The band consists of Brendon Urie on vocals, piano, and guitar, Ryan Ross on back-vocals, piano and guitar, and Spencer Smith on Drums. Brent Wilson was kicked out in May/June of 2006, though he formally played bass. Jon Walker stepped in as replacement for their first headlining tour.
Panic! at the disco is an underrated band, who get judged to much on how fast they rose to success.
