– Wow. – (singing along)
♪ Poise and rationality ♪ – Like, almost every single one
of their songs are just catchy. ♪ (song concludes) ♪ – I’m smiling so much. – That’s one of my favorite bands. ♪ (punk rock music) ♪ – (Finebros) So do you know
what band that was? – Um, nope. – No. I’ve only heard the song,
the second song. – No, but they looked like
a mix of both of the Smosh guys. – This was Panic! at the Disco. – Panic! at the Disco. No, I’m sorry. PANIC! at the Disco. – They’re my favorite band. – (Finebros) So this is
Panic! at the Disco. – Panic! at the Disco. – I’m gonna write that down,
’cause I need to remember that. – (Finebros) So this band’s been around
for more than ten years. – Really? I’m old. (chuckles) – (Finebros) No, you’re not.
(laughter) So along with bands like
Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance, they helped popularize a new breed
of pop punk in the mid-2000s. Would you say you’re
a fan of that type of music? – Uh, no. I listen to rap mainly. – I enjoy it. I don’t seek it out
and listen to it all the time. – Yes. That’s one of my
favorite music genres. – I like My Chemical Romance. I like Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy. – I am a pop punk kid. They have deep lyrics.
The lyrics are actually good. They all strike a chord
within me and all my friends. – (Finebros) Why do you think
teenagers specifically over time have connected to this type of music? – ‘Cause teenagers are weird.
– And they’re emotional. – And they’re weird.
– Okay. Lemme take it from a girl,
we are emotional people. – Teens kind of all
have the same mentality. I want to listen to this because I think my parents
won’t like me listening to this. – It’s really like, “Unh!” You know? We don’t care what you think. – They write songs that resonate, and they have to do with teens
and adolescents growing up. – It’s all geared towards teenagers and people who are going through
these rebellious moments and people who are going through like, (whiny voice) “My parents
don’t understand!” I’m okay with being targeted,
especially with this music, ’cause it’s good. – (Finebros) The band
is known to slightly change their musical style from album to album. What do you think about bands
that continue to evolve versus bands doing the same thing? – Taylor Swift. I don’t like when they make a huge jump, like from one genre to another. – I like bands who evolve if they’re evolving to stay
with the fans that they’ve created and that helped them get famous. – It’s much better to evolve. I mean, that’s lame, just staying
the same place where you were? I mean, why would you listen to them? – A lot of bands probably
get criticism for being a sellout, ’cause they’re changing
to fit the society that they’re in, and that’s kinda not
their message originally. But I think it’s survival of the fittest
when it comes to music. You change your music
so it’s what people want to hear. – No one will ever
get tired of these guys, ’cause these guys are constantly changing. And they can show up anybody,
and they can still rock the charts. – The musical aspect of everything
they do changes over time, and it’s a fluid thing,
and people have to evolve with it. And I love that part, because that shows that you actually have
creativity as a musician. – (Finebros) So something
interesting about the band is that they are no longer together. In fact, there’s only one person left.
– What? – Is that why there’s only
one guy on the cover of the album I have? – It’s just Brendon Urie. – (Finebros) It’s just Brendon Urie. He sings, plays all the instruments, and made the entire album on his own. – He’s a OG. – Yeah.
– He’s a real gangsta. – Mad props to him! – He can play the instruments well
and then sing like a god. What the hell? – Other single artists
have done it themselves. But it is impressive. – He has all these ideas
and all these flows that he can just connect with,
and there’s no wall. It’s all him, you know?
There’s no one helping him. But also, there’s no one holding him back. – It’s impressive of him.
I do miss the band. – (Finebros) Brendon is still
releasing the new album under the Panic! at the Disco name, despite the fact that
the band is now just him. What do you think of him doing this
versus it being a solo album? – Um, I think it’s kind of weird, because obviously, how are you
gonna call it Panic! at the Disco when it’s just the “Panic!”
and the “at the Disco” is all gone? – He still has the name
Panic! at the Disco. And if all the people left,
he still is Panic! at the Disco. – It doesn’t really bother me, considering that he has
gotten new band mambers to back him up in concerts and stuff, like Dallon Weekes, I know, is one. – He’s just doing it because
everyone already knows Panic! Like, they already know that name. – Gerard Way, he released
an album by himself. And I believe if he had
released it under MCR, it probably would’ve gotten
a lot more traction. It’s already a brand. Why lose it? – (Finebros) What is Brendon left and the other band members stayed and still called themselves
Panic! at the Disco? Do you think they’d have
the same kind of success? – I think they would,
because everyone in that band was still talented,
and they still are to this day. – I definitely think there would
be some fans who are like, “Brendon was my favorite.
Now I’m just gonna stop listening.” But they’d still have fans. – The singer is usually
the face of the band. It sounds different without that person. So it’s like, “Okay,
you can’t call it that.” – No one has the exact same voice as him. No one has the same feel and emotion. It wouldn’t work out
if they put in a new singer. – Brendon makes the band, you know? When you see Panic! at the Disco,
who do you think of? Brendon Urie. – (Finebros) So final question:
with this new album here and us talking about it,
are you gonna continue to listen to Panic! at the Disco?
– No. – Probably not, no. – Yeah. Why not? – Yeah! – I’ll definitely give
the whole album a whirl. – Oh yeah. You know,
probably right now when I leave, I’m probably gonna go look at it,
plug it in on the car, and probably just listen
to a couple songs. – Of course. Oh my gosh,
that’s even a question. – Yeah, I’m gonna go listen
to more Panic! at the Disco. I’m becoming more of a fan each day. It’s getting there slowly,
but Fall Out Boy’s still at the top. – That brings us to the end
