Panic! At the Disco Declares Emo Is Bullshit!

Posted Oct. 18, 2006, 11:14 p.m. in Bands by Jason

Is the world crumbling around us? Panic! At the Disco got their panties in a bundle about being called "emo."

Frontman Brendan Uriem had this to say about the genre to NME:
It's ignorant! The stereotype is guys that are weak and have failing relationships write about how sad they are. If you listen to our songs, not one of them has that tone. Emo is bullshit! If people want to take it for the literal sense of the word, yes we're an emotional band, we put a lot of thought into what we do. People always try to stereotype us, but we don't fit the emo stereotype.
If you are done picking your jaw off the floor after such a revelation, you can read the rest of the article here.
