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. There are much better songs like nicotine, this is gospel, nearly witches, that green gentlemen, Death of a Bachelor, nicotine, there's a good reason these tables are numbered honey you just haven't thought of it yet, and nicotine. Amazing song but not their best.

I Write Sins was the first Panic! song I listened to ever! 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 is the best. I love the tune and lyrics.

In a interview Brendon got the question "if you had to choose one lyric to tattoo what would it be and where? " He answered

I'd probably put CLOSE THE damn DOOR just right across my ass ya know?


This song has so much life in it! It's the sort of song you want to hear at a party. It's got great lines and the music is just great to listen to altogether. Keep singing, Panic!

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! Makes sense that it's ranked #2! I expect it to stay in the top 3 for quite a while.

Its 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!

One of their best for sure! Their lyrics are so imaginative. They've taught me so many words every time I hear another song I learn another load of words. Panic at the disco taught me half my vocab.

I had such a hard choice choosing between this and I write sins not tragedies and New perspective because they are so awesome. Thank God I found them don't know what I would have done laugh out loud.

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 to 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 T.V. 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.

I am stuck on this song and constantly finding myself putting it on repeat. Its just so catchy and I like that it's so well sung in a style that couldn't suite the lyrics any other way! Honestly one of my favorites from Panic, and really think this song is underrated for the masterpiece it is.

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.

4 Nine in the Afternoon

Okay, all though it's pretty funny that this song is in ninth place, regarding the title; this was the first song I have heard from Panic! At the Disco, and 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 P!ATD'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 can not get over how catchy it is. It always puts me in a good mood when it comes up on pandora

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!

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

I didn't like this song at first, but it is definitely 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.

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

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 song shouldn't be in the top 5. It's good, but other songs ate better. This list seems to be created by fake fans. No shame.

6 Build God, Then We'll Talk

This is BY FAR by favorite song by Panic!, and its 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 with her clothes on. And come 2 think of it so should nine in the afternoon.

Everything about this song is amazing. The cello, the low pitched first verses, the bass, the cello… the story behind it, about a catholic virgin absolutely in need to get a job but in order to do so, she needs to sleep with her married employer, who's wife knows about this but she is just with him for the money, is brilliant. Absolutely genius. My favourite song of all times by far

Not only did this song teach at least 6 new words, but it's catchy and insightful. It shows how low some of societies standards and morals have fallen, while still giving people a song to listen to just for the heck of it. Truly one worth listening to.

7 Emperor's New Clothes

Probably my #1 favourite 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 new-found 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!

HOLY CRAP this is my favorite song from the new album that they have released so far! Personally, I think Victorious is great, Hallelujah is good, Death Of A Bachelor is alright, and this song is AMAZING! I love the creepy element that they brought back from Vices and Virtues. And can we talk about that music video... WOW

One of the best off the new album for sure. Not a 100% HUGE fan of the album however this song is super cool. The way it's a followup to This Is Gospel (as far as music videos go) is so entertaining to me. Brendon is taking back the title Panic! At The Disco all for himself, and in this song he makes it clear he's not giving it up, or sharing it, anytime soon.

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 the how much Brendon and the band have grown in their 10 years.

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

Technically not released yet (but it's on YouTube), this song is completely different from anything Panic has done. Influenced by Frank Sinatra, the beat and smooth melody mixed with Brendon's voice make for an amazing song.

Death of a bachelor is easily my favourite panic at the disco song ever. This really should be placed higher. My best friend and I always choose this for karaoke. It is just so beautiful to listen to.

9 Miss Jackson

"Where will you be waking up tomorrow morning? Out the back door, damn but I love her anyways. Climbing out the back door, didn't leave a mark, no one knows it's you miss Jackson. Found another victim but no one's gonna find miss Jackson." Should definitely be at least 2nd or 3rd. I could listen to this for HOURS.

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! :D My fave part is: "Way down til' the fire finally dies out, you got em' wrapped around your finger watch em' fall down, there's someting beautiful and tragic in the fallout lemme 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.

Been listening to these and have been rather disappointed for the most part. I like Build God then We'll Talk and I Write Sins not Tragedies.. but til I came across this one, I was afraid that would be it. Could definitely listen to this all day!

10 Time to Dance

This is a song that comes in guns blazing, but never lets down during the course of three and a half minute run time. Despite this, the dynamics of the song are still present, creating these exciting moment throughout the track. Like the rest of their first record, lyrics are also a strong suit here.

My favorite from Fever :D Can I just say... There are so many songs from this album that are so much better than I Write Sins. 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.

This songs is amazing with a catchy beat and quirky lyrics. Perfect for jamming and yelling to the words, especially "Shotgun, wedding, shotgun wedding! " personally I love this song and am kind of shocked that its not in the top ten!

This song was always my favorite also first song I heard by panic! The lyrics are catchy and awesome, Brendon also said this was the first song he wrote with the band.

The Contenders
11 Northern Downpour

This song is one of my favorites from Panic!. Although I cry every time I listen to it, it reminds 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 on this song, it's easily one of your best.

My favorite Panic! song by far, 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.

I've only recently started listening to Panic! At The Disco, and while I love almost all their songs, this one is just so beautiful. I wish I could put an italic on the word beautiful because that is the best way I can describe the song. Listen to it.

The lyrics hold so much meaning and it is a really wonderful song that is very underappreciated. This song is truly one of their most beautiful songs.
You can tell that a lot of love went into it as you listen to it, for that reason this song is one of my all-time favorites.

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, trying to find the name. It's absolute perfection, and it's better than I Write Sins, Not Tradegies, 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.

Seriously!? Even I wonder why this wasn't number 1! I mean, I adore their song 'I write sins not tragedies' but just the quality of the music in this song won me over! I just can't help but put it on repeat! Good job you guys, even with Jon and Ryan gone you two still wow me!

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!

13 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 wants to make you 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.

I just really don't support this list... These songs are ALL overrated and we should have more discreet songs like Northern Downpour, Girls/Girls/Boys, Death Of A Bachelor.. These songs are great, I agree, but these are all so over played so I would completely change this list around!

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. And then when we got to the bathroom there was no music in there so we held the door open.

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.

14 But It's Better If You Do

...Honestly offended because this is the best song Panic! Previously has 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 & the altogether composition of the vocals & music. It could be a witty song, but also slightly sad in the lyrics and slow tempo that differs from many of Panic! '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.

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 is my second favourite song by Panic after The Ballad of Mona Lisa and I could write a hundred reasons why. Something about this song always clicked with me, I loved it from the start. The beat, vocals, and tone of the music really pull it together. Definitely too underrated.

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.

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 ballad of Mona Lisa so it should be a top song! Right along with I write sins not tragedies!

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

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

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!

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!

How could this song be so low in ranking? It's so unique and...I don't know, I think the only fitting word would be PERFECT.

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 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

Should be WAY higher, it's probably the best in the new album.

18 Girls/Girls/Boys

Okay first of all the lyrics, just as all of P! ATD's songs, are amazing, but specifically this song because its 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 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

Should be on top 10. It has a great beat, an AMAZING music video, is beautifully sung, and the best part is the message Brendon Urie is trying to send out.

One of the first patd songs I ever heard, this song means something very special to me. I have no idea why I love this song so much. There's just something about it. Definitely my favorite.

19 Far Too Young to Die

Dallon Weekes is an amazing lyricist and I love how simplistic yet really touching this song truly is. I think everyone can relate to this song sometime in their life. Plus, it's the perfect song for whatever mood you're on. It has multiple perspectives. It could be taken as a more sad song, or with its upbeat sound, could really put you in a good mood and get you dancin'

Don't know how this song is rated so far back. It's got amazing lyrics and tune, very catchy and you'll have it stuck in your head all day.

Just give this song a try and you will not regret it, great lyrics and great, weel, everything! Probably not their best, but many people visit this list to know great songs, and that's what I'm doing by voting on this one! :D

This song is so diverse and is lyrically and melodically amazing, it makes me happy and sad at the same time. it's such a price of art and it's just amazing

20 High Hopes

I love this! I could go on and on and 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 also very surprising that Panic came up with something more child-friendly, as most of his other songs are more for adults.

Ok, I'm sick and tired of this song. Pray for The Wicked has better songs on it like Dying in LA. He also has better albums like Death of a Bachelor and Vices & Virtues. Not my favourite song in the world.

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.

This should be much higher, I get it it's a new song but it should be in the top 10 by the end of 2018.

21 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 only wish that 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.

It sounds like a demented heaven on earth, I just love the sound of great lyrics and a beautiful voice with a twist. I love how he compares a relationship with a drug. Just so... smart?

The best part of this song is the opening. It feels light and happy at first, and then the guitar kicks in and any sense of that is instantly lost.

22 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 through the doors to a fancy party. Singing this song makes you feel like causing trouble, and the chorus is so fun. Each line is another detail to the story. The whole album is Luke a soap opera, each song can be made into a Broadway show. Best Song EVER.

Number 13? This is far better than any of the songs in the top 5 (Lying Is The Most Fun is a close second, though) It has beautiful lyrics, a beautiful beat, beautiful everything! 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!

How is I Write Sins Not Tragedies first? Why not this song? Its absolutely the best and deserves to be first or even second. Ever since I first heard it I instantly fell in love with it. I could randomly just blurt out all the lyrics because I've listened to it so many times. If someone even says "Please" I will start shouting this song.

Probably one of the most creative songs by Panic! At the Disco. The long song title is just part of its charm, the piano and other instruments accompany the guitar and drums quite well, and the lyrics are just fun, cynical, hilarious, and unique. "Oh and the smokes in that cigarette box on the table just so happened to be laced... With... Nitroglycerin! "

23 Camisado

Ryan Ross is a lyrical genius and really the song itself is incredibly sad however it comes across as upbeat and urgent. Which, it is urgent (the guy is dying and/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 sorta 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 dunno. There's so many secrets in this song and it never fails to impress me.

Amazing song, it should be in top 5 but at least it's in the top ten! Totally one of their best songs! I'm from Greece, I love Panic! At The Disco and I would kill someone to see them live in Greece!

I was so emotional when my best friends Louis and Denny sang this for Kyle, because they just found a cure, and need money for him to be NEC. We are so close... I love this song so much.

Has anyone seen that live version of the song where he hits that high note? He was like, what? 18? 19? He sounds like an angel.

24 La Devotee

First song I've ever heard by p!atd. It made me listen to the others too, but it isn't my favorite now. I can't choose between them tho. Love every piece of Brendon's work equally.

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 to me sounds like "sweaty balls under desert skies". Trust me youll hear it if you listen close enough. Its 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.

25 That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)

My favorite song of PATD. Uplifts my mood every time I listen to it. This song also highlights the soulful voice of Brendon Urie

Always been my favorite from "Pretty. Odd.", next to Northern Downpour & 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!

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!

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!
