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 who pretty much sounds like a more annoying version of Fall Out Boy. This is not a good thing because Fall Out Boy is already kind of annoying in the first place

Apparently this band has been mooching off of Fall Out Boy's success
When Panic! at the Disco first came out, I just assumed it was a new Fall Out Boy single

To be adored by teenage girls and Myspace fanatics alike but still churn out completely unlistenable, bothersome songs.
Panic! At the Disco are slightly annoying, aren't they?
Not if you're 13 with braces and aren't addicted to Myspace.

A recently new band that most people would call emo.there music is a mix between dance n emo rock witch is a good combination
Sit tight, I'm gonna need you to keep time
Come on just snap, snap, snap your fingers for me
Good, good now we're making some progress
Come on just tap, tap, tap your toes to the beat
And I believe this may call for a proper introduction, and well
Don't you see, I'm the narrator, and this is just the prologue?----Panic!At the disco's song (the only difference.....)

An MTV created pop/punk/emo/electronica band that is good... if you are a brainwashed MTV watching zombie. Their lyrics show their lack of talent, creativity, and show that they are overall just plain shitty. They are a disgrace to music. People only like them b/c MTV told them it was good... poor fools.
Panic! at the disco is an uber sucky band with no talent whatsoever. They should drive off of a cliff and die.

Highly overrated band who write songs with absolutely no melodies, just some "witty" lyrics. Blah blah blah we know all you original fans are mad the mainstream picked them up, but it was only a matter of time before corporate America got its hand on crap music.
Heard this song, "I Sing Tragedies..." or whatever the crap it's called?
Yeah, Panic! At the Disco, huh? Annoying as hell, isn't it?

Fag #2: Let's fuck.
