The Top Ten

I Write Sins Not Tragedies
"the poor groom's bride is a Whore! " laugh out loud that line ruled my brain!.
I LOVE THIS SONG! It was the first songs I heard of them and its so catchy " haven't you people ever heard of, closing the g****** door no! iTs much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality"
love this song... nice lyrics, good music video, incredible performance.

2The Ballad of Mona Lisa
One of their best for sure! Their lyrics are so imaginative. They've taught me so many words everytime I hear another song I learn another load of words. Panic at the disco taught me half my vocab.
"Say what you mean, tell me I'm right and let the sun rain down on me, give me a sign. I wanna believe"

This song is now their best in their entire discography. Should be top of the list by some margin.


Best Song I ever heard by the panic! At the disco. Man these dudes are really talented. The Lead Singer voice is amazing, I was seriously not the biggest fan of them but now I'm all in it

3New Perspective
I absolutely LOVE this song, the best!
It really shows, it's not too late to turn back now, and you can live life from a new perspective, not only by yourself but with friends also to help you on the road of life and living and just being you. If you could change the way you were why not listen to this song for some inspiration?
Amazing song! Best Panic at the Disco song! Can't believe it's not #1. I could listen to this song all day and not get bored or sick of it! They need more songs like this for sure. Nothing bests this song! Not even I Write Sins Not Tragedies!

4Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off
Let's get these teen hearts beating. Faster, faster
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close... Yeah
Amazing song that relates to teenagers!
It is super easy to like, especially if you have done something like that in the passengers seat! lol (:
I hardly listen to this music but this song I loved it! hehe
Lets get this teen hearts beating faster and faster! Miss this line every time ryan second voices this

5Build God, Then We'll Talk
Should be at least in the top 5. The verses are really deep and the chorus is catchy:

Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

I can listen to this all day.


I love it because of the message it sends, and also the feel of the song. "No more raindrops on roses and girls and white dresses" just speaks to me. It's like saying there's not any more love left in the relationship, it's all physical.
heard this song and loved it! I listen to it all the time and never get bored! <3 I'm in love with panic at the disco!

6Nine In the Afternoon
So catchy! Best song from Panic At the Disco!
I can listen to this all the time however I'm feeling and I'll never get sick of it! Amazing!
Never getting tired of this song! Best song I have ever heard in my life! It's my favorite patd song!
this song does something awful to me. there's a sort of raw emotion in it, but it's in a major key, and thus a happier tone. best song.

7Ready to Go (Get Me Out of My Mind)
This is by far my favorite song ever! I could never get sick of listening to it. It makes me feel happier when I'm down!
This song gets me energized and ready to go in the mornings! It's so catchy, just as good as The Ballad of Mona Lisa!
love this song! one of my favorites! the music video is probably one of the most inventive ones I've seen! anyways, I love it!

8The Calendar
"Put another 'x' on the calendar
Summer's on it's deathbed
There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends
And I meant everything I said that night
I will come back to life
But only for you
Only for you"

GREAT song, deserves more votes here and better be released as a single! The "only for you" part kinda kills the momentum this song has but what can you do, it's still a great song!


This was a really hard choice, considering how many other amazing songs they have, but The Calendar is easily one of their best, if not their best. It deserves to be in the top five, and definitely higher than I Write Sins Not Tragedies (which is only number one because it is the most popular. )

The lyrics are amazing, as are the vocals and instrumentals. Also, there are birds in the song. BIRDS. Birds are trapped in this song! How do you top that?

"They said if you don't let it out, you're gonna let it eat you away. I'd rather be a cannibal baby, animals like me don't talk anyway. "

"Asleep in the hive, I guess all the buzzing got to me. But I'm still alive, and at night your body is a symphony, and I'm conducting. "
This is basically New Perspective 2.0 and it's better than New Perspective too. Definitely the best song from the new album in my opinion, vote The Calendar!

9Miss Jackson
Oh my god... It's like heaven on earth. Seriously, this should be number 2 or 3. So catchy! Can't get it out of my head!
Newest and best song by them... Not a typical rock pop song... Cool beat.. Cynical video
This is the NEW SONG!

10Time to Dance
Great lyrics and no repitition. This is the way a good song should sound. How is this not higher rated? I mean honestly this is probably on of the best songs they have written.
Fantastic. There's emotion, melody, drama: everything you could ask for. It's engaging and every line is different. Absolutely one of their best songs.
Amazing. Never get tired of this song! Listen to it all the time-the lyrics are perfect, the music is genius... How it this not in the top five, let alone the top ten?

The Contenders

Underrated and catchy lyrics:
"Can't take the kid from the fight
take the fight from the kid
Sit back, relax
Sit back, relapse again
Can't take the kid from the fight
take the fight from the kid
Just sit back, just sit back"


"This is the scent of dead skin on a linoleum floor
This is the scent of quarantine wings in a hospital"
Sick song. Should totally be top 10. Sit back and relax people
"This is the scent of dead skin on a linoleum floor
This is the scent of quarantine wings in a hospital"
Amazing song doe

12There's a Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven't Thought of It Yet
amaazing song, this should totally bee in the top 5, I don't know why its 10 becausee its one of the best songs Panic's ever written
Coz Dwight sang it and its awesome! This song recreates the importance of screwing with everyone else and it is just plain to listen to. "Please leave all overcoats, canes, and top hats with the doorman, from that moment you'll be out of place and underdressed. "
Why the heck isn't this on here!? One of my favourites from the debut album which is by far their best.

13But It's Better If You Do
This is a song that you can listen to, and not know the band, and instantly love them, because this is how I started to love panic! At the disco. Definitely should be at least top 4. And it came along with a great music video.
This is like the best 4 minute soap opera ever! It appeals to both guys and girls. For the girls, there's the indescribably SEXY Brendon Urie (that's always a treat), and for the guys, well, the whole video is filled with strippers, so yeah. So how can this not be #1? It's the best song ever and the video appeals to EVERYONE! My only question left (other than " does Brendon and Ryan have to be so drop dead sexy? ") is why isn't this #1? Let's solve this problem now by voting for this song!
This song is amazing! It's it has lots of contrast, not much repetition, and I love how the ending leads straight into I write sins not tragedies. I also love the steamy, provocative lyrics. You could say... It paints a pretty detailed picture in your head.

14The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage
Don't you just want to jump up and down screaming the lyrics to this song? You do, you do.
I really love this song! Take your time and really listen to it. I know that it keeps me up until 2 am singing into a hairbrush. It never gets old ;)
Personnally I listen to this song more than 20 times a day and I never get bored. It should be in the top 3 for the simple reason that lyrics and rhythm are magnificently combined. It has an electro part which changes from what we used to hear from P! ATD and this makes it among the best ones they've made.

15This Is Gospel
This song is absolutely amazing, the film clip as well! You can hear the emotion in Brenden's voice. The lyrics are beautifully written! I can relate to this song so much and it gets me emotional every time!
This is definitely in my top five! The lyrics and video are very emotional. If there's one thing I've learned watching the video, it's that you should never let evil doctors take ropes out of your chest. Seriously though, this is a wonderful, inspiring song.
The absolute best song I have ever heard. I hadn't been keeping up with Panic! Since Pretty. Odd. Came out and just heard this the other day and it has caused me to listen to the entire album on repeat for a week!

16That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)
I Can't get enough of the structure, riff, singing and just about everything! In my opinion this is the best Panic song ever made and your crazy if you think otherwise!
This song HAS to be in top 5! It's one of the best of panic at the disco and the lyrics are unique and overwhelming
Oh come on, this song is not in top 10, This's totally a same :((

17Northern Downpour
The prettiest song I ever did hear. Extremely relaxing, at one point I had all the lyrics memorized. I still have the first one in my head, and probably will for a long time to come, its just that great of a song.
Not their most popular, but it certainly should be; it's just a beautiful, relaxing song, with great lyrics. My favorite for sure.
most relaxing song of all time can be played again and again and you won't get bored

18Let's Kill Tonight
I love this song! When I listen to it, I find myself actually becoming lost inside of it... is that weird? anyway this is a song any PATD fan should hear. Even though the lyrics are a little crazy at times it is a fantastic showcase of their artistic talent
This is a great Panic! Song it should be at least 7, 8, 9 or 10. It has such good drum work by Spencer and those brilliant vocals by Brendon. It just sounds really good and catchy with amazing riffs.

19Sarah Smiles

Laugh out loud som good

This is definitely one of their best song,
Just because its released on 2011 end
People have voted too much before it,
Please Hear it once before voting, /
I write Sins Not Tragedies is still their best works
Ending speed of the chorus AWESOME


This song is awesome! It needs to get into the top ten :D The whole song is just... Wow.
Good enough for Batman, Good enough for me. This should easily be in the top 10, along with This is gospel and Nothern Downpour. EPIC.

This song is incredible and deserves to be in the top 5. It's so touching and easy to relate to. I really like how this isn't the typical punk rock that Panic at the Disco is so well known for, this song brings out their emotional side more than any other!
This is the best song ever, period. The lyrics and the melody is all so sweet and beautiful (with a touch of something pretty.odd. Love it.). I would immediately fall in love if a guy ever sung this to me.
This song is so AMAZING! Its kindda slow.. But the tune is brilliant! Whenever I listen to it, I feel so so touched! The lyrics are simply beautiful! This song should be in top 10!

22Nails For Breakfast, Tacks For Snacks
I cannot believe this song is 24! This is one of my favorite songs, it has so much meaning behind it. I mean poor RYRO this song was about his dad and his struggles with alcohol and the impact it had on his life. "The hospice is a relaxing weekend getaway where you're a cut above all the rest sick and sad patients on first name basis with all the top physicians. "
Great song, amazing lyrics, Brendon's Brilliant voice(he hits such high notes)what more could you ask for.
I can't believe this isn't higher up! Its SO good! Also listen to the demo version. Its way different, but also brillient! Vote, Vote, Vote!
This needs to be directly after I write sins not tragedies

I'm a little surprised at how low on the list this song is. Love these lyrics the most:
Where'd you go?
You were all I've ever known.
How I miss Yesturday
and how I let it fade away..
Greatest groove out of any of their songs!
This song hit me pretty hard. Its lyrics are deep.

25When the Day Met the Night
This song is my favorite, it has such a wonderful message and the chorus is awesome. It's also a really good love song and I can't believe its not in the top 5. If you listen to it you will instantly fall in love. It reminds me of the Beatles and some P! ATD fans not like it, it's not much rock but it sure is an awesome song.
This is the cutest song ever. Come on guys vote for it!

One of the most addicting Panic songs ever. Never will ever get old. The lyrics are sexy and it's so catchy. Absolutly shouldbe in the top ten.
Amazing Song, really underrated like the band itself, should be up there with the top ten by far, absolutely brilliant

I absolutely love this song, it was by far the best A-side on the album!

This is just perfect. They both just go for it and belt it. They both sound just so pure and the sound is so angelic. I get goosebumps whenever it comes on my playlist. I recommend to everyone and anyone. Such a unique sound and deserves to be appreciated by all.
This song is just amazing. Nate and Brendon's voices are such a nice mix of sugar and spice, per say. Especially after viria13's use of it for a Percy Jackson thing, I've just fell in total love with it.
Abosolutley beautiful. The way Nate and Brendons voices mix is amazing. Probably my favorite of all time. It's so beautiful, and I love the references to Alice In Wonderland

How is this not in the top 5? Ryan Ross has an AMAZING voice and should be credited for that. AND the purpose/content of the song just makes it THAT much better.

31London Beckond Songs About Money Written by Machines
Start talking a sensationalist, oh he's slightly clever to just a certain extent.
Keep quiet, let us sing like the doves, then decide if it's done with purpose or lack thereof.

Just for the record, the weather today, is slightly sarcastic with a good chance of:

A. Indifference
B. Disinterest in what the critics say.

Best lyrics ever!
This is probably my favorite song out of any song, ever. I also really like Camisado, The only difference between martydom and suicide is press converage, Northern Downpour, and But It's Better If You Do. I can't believe this song is at 25... None of my picks are very high on the list!
No song from"Fever" should be this low on the list. It was the greatest album ever and that means every song went above and beyond. This album had so many remarkable lyrics that changed my life.

34Nearly Witches (Ever Since We Met...)
This is probably my favorite P! ATD, song, maybe even my most favorite song EVER. The chorus is just absolutely amazing, and everything about it is so unique! I really wish it was higher up than this!

Oh come on guys. ! The video MAY be weird ( not in my opinion but hehe) but the song is very catchy and is great to learn on guitar. ! "I never would've think that I would be caught in the way you got me~" That's a sweet cheesy line that one would say to their lover right. ? I have to say this is #4 on my list after The Ballad of Mona Lisa
Such a good song! Its not in the top 10 because it was only just released but it definitely deserves to be!

I hate the fact that this song was the iTunes bonus song, it deserved to be on the album. I usually can't stand listening to iTunes quality songs, but this song is my main exception! It's a fantastic song and everyone needs to hear it!

This is probably one of my favorite songs in general and I wish it was on itunes
