Panic! at the Disco has become a new legend in modern music. In a society that worships pop music, this rock band stands as a fierce alternative to anything else in the mainstream.
Here’s how the musicians behind Panic! at the Disco became modern legends.
1. They took influence from iconic bands of the past.
Many of the major music legends of the past were rock bands. The Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Zombies all played a hand in influencing the founding members of Panic! at the Disco.
The band also changes its sound for each album. Their music has evolved from emo pop to alternative rock. They’ve even incorporated elements of hip-hop and electropop into their latest material.
2. They changed members to benefit the future of the band.
Panic! at the Disco was first founded in 2004 by then-high schoolers Brendan Urie, Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. They released their first album in 2005 and made it big with their second single, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.” However, during the band’s extensive touring, Wilson was fired and replaced by Jon Walker.
This wasn’t the last change to the band’s official lineup. A split over creative differences after the release of the second album left Urie and Smith as the band’s remaining members.
Now, Urie is the only official member of the band’s lineup.
3. The band keeps building on its success through hardship.
Despite that he’s the only remaining member of Panic! at the Disco after more than ten years with the band, Urie keeps recording and touring. He released the band’s fifth studio album, Death of a Bachelor, in 2016.
He embarked on a tour to promote the album in 2017.
Panic! at the Disco has become a modern music legend because the band keeps growing and changing to suit its audience. Like Urie, if you want to become a music icon, you should always persevere.
