Top 10 Best Panic! At the Disco Songs

The Top Ten
1 I Write Sins Not Tragedies

While I love this song and could listen to it for hours, it really should be lower on the list. There are much better songs like Nicotine, This Is Gospel, Nearly Witches, That Green Gentleman, Death of a Bachelor, and There's a Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven't Thought of It Yet.

Amazing song, but not their best.

"I Write Sins Not Tragedies" was the first Panic! song I ever listened to. At first, I was like, "Yeah, no big deal. I'll probably drop this in a week." Now I've listened to every album, learned half the songs, and taught myself to sing like Beebo. So, I truly do think "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" is the best. I love the tune and lyrics.

2 The Ballad of Mona Lisa

Amazing song! I'm one of those people who only listens to the first few seconds of a song before I judge it as good or bad... probably not a good thing to do. But anyway, I was blown away after listening to the entire thing!

It makes sense that it's ranked number 2. I expect it to stay in the top 3 for quite a while.

It's an amazing song! I've never heard anything so original and imaginative before. I first heard this song in 2012, and I'm still in love with it! Once you hear it for the first time, you will become hooked. Brendon's voice is incredible, and you will fall in love with this!

3 This Is Gospel

This is by far my favorite Panic! At The Disco song! The lyrics are so meaningful and amazing! I could listen to this song on repeat forever and I would still be screaming/singing all the words.

My best friend also loves this song, and whenever it comes on, we both sing along to it! I love the new songs but nothing Brendon puts out will be able to beat this song!

This song is beautiful. The lyrics are so well written, and Brendon sings them perfectly, without fail. The meaning of the song really carries throughout the entire performance.

It speaks to me and it sounds phenomenal. I got into P!ATD with The Ballad of Mona Lisa, then I forgot about them. One day I saw this song on TV and it flung me back into the P!ATD hype, and for this, I am so thankful. This song deserves to be in the top 5, without a doubt.

4 Nine in the Afternoon

Okay, although it's pretty funny that this song is in ninth place, regarding the title, this was the first song I heard from Panic! At The Disco, and it will always be my one and only favorite. Literally, I am obsessed with this song on so many levels. It deserves better.

If I didn't know what Brendon's voice sounded like, I would think this was by The Beatles. It is easily Panic! At The Disco's happiest song, and it gives me the confidence to talk to my crush.

I have listened to this song 10 billion times in a row on YouTube, and I still cannot get over how catchy it is. It always puts me in a good mood when it comes up on Pandora.

5 Build God, Then We'll Talk

This is BY FAR my favorite song by Panic!, and it's also from my favorite album of all time. It's nothing like I've ever heard before.

I could listen to this song on repeat for the rest of my life and I wouldn't ever get bored. It's seriously the best song I have ever listened to, and it will always be one of my all-time favorites!

This should be number 4. I also think that Nearly Witches (Ever Since We Met) should be on this list. I really like this song.

It has a good message about today's corrupt society. It should definitely be higher than Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off. And come to think of it, Nine in the Afternoon should be as well.

6 Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off

I didn't like this song at first, but it has definitely become one of my favorites. Brendon sings with such passion and raw emotion that this song is just ear pleasure. The lyrics are incredible as well.

Love this song! The first time I heard it, I totally fell in love with the interesting lyrics and catchy flow of the song. Honestly, this is number one on my list.

This is a great song. Every song by Panic! is great. My friends are beginning to worry, mainly because of the lyrics.

7 Emperor's New Clothes

Probably my number one favorite off their new album. This got me into Panic! (I know I'm like a decade late, but I didn't really listen to them before then).

After I had a bit of a listen (like nonstop repeat for two weeks), I started to listen to their other songs from their other albums as well and have a newfound appreciation for this band. You can thank this song for a new Panic! fan.

I absolutely LOVE this song. It is currently my favorite video to watch on YouTube. When I first heard about it, I was suspicious. I listened to it and immediately after, I bought it on iTunes.

I am loving the whole Vice and Virtues vibe and the add-on to the This is Gospel video slays! Favorite song by them for sure!

8 Death of a Bachelor

This song is beautiful and completely different than anything Panic has ever done. The catchy melody combined with the smooth band and Brendon's voice make for a great song. Influenced by Frank Sinatra, this song shows how much Brendon and the band have grown in their 10 years.

Get ready, because this song is going to take over your playlist and your life. Not only is the song meaningful and catchy, but that high note Brendon hits is going to make you cry pitiful tears of joy over the fact you were born for this song and nothing else.

9 Miss Jackson

Miss Jackson is the absolute best I've heard from "Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!" I've listened to it so much I even memorized the lyrics! It should be in the top 3 or something.

My favorite part is: "Way down till the fire finally dies out, you got them wrapped around your finger watch them fall down, there's something beautiful and tragic in the fallout let me say it one more time!"

Absolute best!

To be honest, I listened to Ballad of Mona Lisa and I Write Sins Not Tragedies, but they sound the exact same. A good background and words almost drowned in it. I'm not saying it's bad, but this is much better. Catchier, and overall a better song to me.

For someone getting into P!ATD, I would recommend this song.

10 Time to Dance

This is a song that comes in guns blazing and never lets down during its three and a half minute runtime. Despite this, the dynamics of the song are still present, creating these exciting moments throughout the track.

Like the rest of their first record, the lyrics are also a strong suit here.

My favorite from 'Fever'. Can I just say... There are so many songs from this album that are so much better than 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies.' I mean, it's a great song, but there are so many other amazing songs from 'Fever' that are really underrated - like this song, 'Camisado,' 'But It's Better If You Do,' 'There's a Good Reason...'

They deserve as much recognition as 'I Write Sins' gets.

The Contenders
11 Northern Downpour

This song is one of my favorites from Panic! At The Disco. Although I cry every time I listen to it, it reminds me of when the original band (besides Brent) were still together.

It's so beautiful and amazing. My favorite line is "I know the world's a broken bone, but melt your headaches, call it home." I'm already crying writing that. Nice job, Panic! At The Disco, on this song. It's easily one of your best.

My favorite Panic! At The Disco song by far is Northern Downpour. It's so gorgeous, and Ryan Ross's lovely (although sometimes confusing) lyrics just make you want to smile and bawl your eyes out. It's such an intimate song, and you can just feel how important the song is to them every time they performed it.

There's a reason that Brendon can't perform the song anymore: it reminds him of the good times before the band split.

12 New Perspective

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?

I adore this song. The first time I heard it, I freaked out trying to find the name. It's absolute perfection and it's better than I Write Sins, Not Tragedies, and that song is a masterpiece. I listen to this song all the time, and it's on every single one of my playlists, and I have 46 of them. I put this on replay all the time.

Seriously, listen to it if you haven't already. I love, love, love this song. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. Go, go, go, get out of here and listen to this song.

Oh, and did anyone catch the Of Monsters And Men references? No? Okay, then.

13 But It's Better If You Do

Honestly, I am offended because this is the best song Panic! At The Disco has ever made, or ever will make. Every detail is beautiful. It has an entirely different sound than any other song on Fever. From the outro fade into I Write Sins to the altogether composition of the vocals and music.

It could be a witty song, but also slightly sad in the lyrics and slow tempo that differs from many of Panic! At The Disco's other songs. The thought that Miss Jackson or Ready to Go are seen as better songs than this masterpiece... You don't have to vote for this as their best song, but It's Better If You Do.

14 The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage

I absolutely love this song. It is my favorite song that Panic! At The Disco sings. I think it should be higher on the list.

This is the type of song that, just from the beginning, makes you want to get up and pray you don't get whiplash. As soon as I hear the beat, my body just starts moving. It's really something else.

Every time I hear this song I think of the time we were at a trampoline park. We went to tell my mom we were going to the bathroom, and while we were walking, this song came on. Then, when we got to the bathroom, there was no music in there, so we held the door open.

15 Ready to Go (Get Me Out of My Mind)

This is a great song! I could listen to it for hours. It's way better than The Ballad of Mona Lisa, so it should be a top song, right along with I Write Sins Not Tragedies.

Best song. I have loved this song since I first heard it. It's really surprising that this is #12. From my opinion, I would rate it #2, right after I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.

This is my favorite song by Panic! At the Disco, hands down. I absolutely love Brendon's voice, and the 14-second intro always gives me chills.

16 Victorious

I nearly died trying to sing that note near the beginning after "tonight we are victorious, champagne pouring over us, all my friends we're glorious, tonight we are victorious." How Brendon does it, I have no idea. But this song is awesome.

I love this song. The vibe is cool, like rocky. Definitely my top two or maybe favorite. The story of the video looks cool. I couldn't stop listening to it when I heard it.

Literally, this album, along with A Fever You Can't Sweat Out and Pray for the Wicked, are the only things keeping me alive!

17 Say Amen (Saturday Night)

This song is easily in my top five, although the music video is quite violent. Brendon's high notes astonish me.

When this came out, I listened to it over and over again. This should DEFINITELY be in the top ten!

Yes! This one is my favorite, so I voted for it. It's so good. The singing is just amazing. This should be in the top ten.

18 La Devotee

The intro to this and Let's Kill Tonight are so similar, so it's always a surprise when my music's on shuffle if it's going to be LA Devotee or Let's Kill Tonight. They're both awesome and energetic though.

This song is the best by far, "Swimming pools under desert skies" usually sounds to me like "sweaty balls under desert skies." Trust me, you'll hear it if you listen closely enough. It brings so much humor to the song!

Great energy and the lyrics paint a vivid image of the city. This song is so catchy that I can't help but scream the lyrics every time I listen to it.

19 Girls/Girls/Boys

Okay, first of all, the lyrics, just as all of P!ATD's songs, are amazing, but specifically this song because it's about bisexuality. The chorus is so powerful and catchy as well. It may not be like a classic AFYCSO song, but I like this new style they are experimenting with just as much.

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 thought 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 number 4 on my list after "The Ballad of Mona Lisa."

20 High Hopes

I love this! I could go on and on about this song. The chorus is amazing, the muffled voice saying "high, high hopes" every once in a while is a nice touch, and there's a sort of techno-rock rattle in the background between lines (if you've listened to the song long enough, you'll know what I mean), which is cool!

It also cheers me up a lot. It's very surprising that Panic! At The Disco came up with something more child-friendly, as most of their other songs are more for adults.

I'm very surprised that this isn't even in the top 50, let alone the top 10. This seemed like a pretty popular song to me.

21 There's a Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven't Thought of It Yet

First off, the piano in this song is beautiful. Then the lyrics start and you feel like you've walked into a fancy party. Singing this song makes you feel like causing trouble, and the chorus is so fun.

Each line adds another detail to the story. The whole album is like a soap opera. Each song could be turned into a Broadway show. Best Song EVER.

Number 13? This song is far better than any of the songs in the top 5 ("Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off" is a close second, though). It has beautiful lyrics and a beautiful beat. Everything about it is impressive!

The line "When you're dressed in black slacks with accentuating off-white pinstripes" is just incredible to listen to. The entire song is incredible to listen to!

22 Nicotine

Of the many songs they've written, "Nicotine" is honestly the best. I love it so much, and only wish for others to feel the same. I wish more people would dedicate themselves more to this band than they do now, instead of only listening to one song like "oh, this is good," then leaving the others alone to rot. I truly believe that if they did that, this song would by far be further up this list.

My favorite song by Panic! and easily one of my favorite songs ever. While there are more widely known songs such as I Write Sins Not Tragedies, this song made me listen to more Panic!. In my opinion, it is their best, barely edging out other songs by them.

23 Camisado

Ryan Ross is a lyrical genius, and the song itself is incredibly sad. However, it comes across as upbeat and urgent, which it is - the guy is dying or trying to die. The lyric in the verses "The apathy and urgency is that I thought I phoned in," just snags my attention.

He's dying and isn't planning on making it, but he still phones in the hospital because even though he tells himself he wants to die, he saves himself. The guy is obsessed with attention because obviously, he's done this sort of thing many times as told by the bridge, "You've earned your place atop the ICU's hall of fame. The camera caught you causing a commotion on the gurney again." That whole thing indicates he's done it before.

I don't know. There are so many secrets in this song, and it never fails to impress me.

24 That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)

Always been my favorite from "Pretty. Odd.," next to "Northern Downpour" and "Behind the Sea." That being said, "That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)" is addicting. I've had it on repeat many times and it never gets old!


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 you're crazy if you think otherwise!

This song has helped me through a lot this past year. I love how I can always remember a song from a past Panic! album that goes along with whatever I am dealing with!

25 Always

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 song is so beautiful. I can't put into words how amazing and just perfect this song is. I wouldn't even call this a song. It's more like art. Even though I love all (but two) of their songs, this is definitely one of the best.

This song is so AMAZING! It's kind of slow, but the tune is brilliant! Whenever I listen to it, I feel so touched. The lyrics are simply beautiful. This song should be in the top 10.
