Panic At The Disco "Break Up" Is No Cause For Panic

| Filed under: Music Minute


So Panic at the Disco is sort of breaking up.

More specifically, members Ryan Ross (the group's creative "mastermind") and Jon Walker are leaving the band to pursue other musical endeavors.

According to their official website, "Though the four of us have made music together in the past, we’ve creatively evolved in different directions which has compromised what each of us want to personally achieve."

The remaining band members, however, will continue to record and tour as planned.

They want that Panic $$$$$$$!

Will the band be the same without Ryan (and Jon)? Better? Worse?

    These guys were ,no are, awesome.
    It's sad that they're changing in such a big way, but hopefully
    they'll continue on successfully.

  3. 3

    D: shame

  4. 4

    Honestly, who cares? They were a flash in the pan band anyways. The music scene is better off without these one hit wonders to begin with.

  5. 5

    If Ryan and Jon are going to leave, they might as well just break up.
    Panic won't be the same without them :[
    I just wish them the best :L

  6. 6

    =/ I think that Brendon and Spencer will be good but I really don't think Ryan and Jon will make it together.

  7. 7

    Eh, worse. Ryan Ross made that band what it was, it will be nothing without him. The lyrics on the first album were the only reason anybody bought it, the Beatles-esque melodies on the second were the only reason anybody bought it - and it's pretty obvious Ryan wrote those melodies.

    'Musical conflict', anyone? Nobody makes a jump between musical styles like that without conflict.

    Ryan actually has the talent to do fairly well without Panic - he's a good writer, plays an instrument, and can sing. Not bad looking, either.

    i love that band. ooh and ryan…

  10. 10

    Next Ratbastard!!!!!!!!

  11. 11

    boo! :(

    Lets hope they go back to their original sound!

  12. 12

    …if Brendon and Spencer continue without Ryan, they're stupid.
    Ryan writes all the lyrics, or the good ones at least. I love this band and I am very distressed right now.

  13. 13

    brendon's written lyrics before. and he can play guitar. anybody can play bass. i'm not to worried. but that's pretty much the last you'll hear from ryan and jon.

  14. 14


    you can see how much this sucks to me and all the rest of the panic fans out there.
    although ryan is the "mastermind" of the band he's not the only one that contributed to the last album.
    i think brendon and spencer will do great on their own and i cant wait to see what jon and ryan will be doing.

    i still love them all.

  15. 15

    they started sucking anyways when they released their most recent album. Their old stuff was really good. I miss that.

  16. 16

    no reason to panic?! IM PANICING!
    this was my absolute favourite band. why couldnt this happen to the jonas brothers instead?!?!

  17. 17

    does this mean … no more ryden/rydon ;O!!!!

  18. 18


  19. 19

    Being a massivefan who has done nothing but cry since i have found out, this is not a good thing! we need ryan and jon in Panic it wont be the same without them, Panic at the disco are my life so i just about died inside.
    Words cannot describe how i feel inside, my world has ended and my worst nightmare has come true.

  20. 20

    chingada madreeeee!!!

  21. 21

    their old stuff was way better anyway. i bought the second album but it never did anything for me. i considered them done before this even happened. bye bye panic!

  22. 22

    i told perez about that :) .. but so sad there broken up

  23. 23

    Hard to say what's going to happen. Brendon has more musical talent than the rest of the band combined, but his lyrics suck. On the other hand, Ryan writes the lyrics, but neither he nor Jon has a singing voice worth mentioning. Both groups will probably fail. Oh well, life's tough.

  24. 24

    ryan ross was hot, the only reason i paid attention. bye bye

  25. 25


  26. 26

    I can just imagine it. A few years from now, someone picks up that now vintage copy of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out and is like.
    "Ryan Ross… I feel like I've heard that somewhere before."
    "I don't know… just some fill in, I guess."

    Those poor guys. I hope they go somewhere with those new "Endeavors" they're talking about.

    Panic will be just fine without them. Brendon's a Musical Mastermind without them.
    Pete Wentz wouldn't let his baby (Panic At The Disco) crash and burn.

  27. 27

    Man that sucks. Jon was a replacement anyway. The band would not be the same without Ryan. He writes all the songs and he has a great voice. I'm so sad.

  28. 28

    So sad. Worst day ever. It's not like they're dead… just … it won't be the same.

  29. 29

    They are going to suck now. ryan wrote most of the songs and jon wrote a few and put the music to the songs. they are screwed. brendon has an amazing voice..and well spencer play drums well? the new band members better be good or they are nothing and might as well break up..

  30. 30

    it's not Panic without ryan and jon. it's only Panic with all four of them. :(

  31. 31

    awww noooo :( i used to frickin be in LOVE with these guys, this is really sad.
    hopefully they dont get worse.

  32. 32

    Ryan had a shit voice. Its completely unsuprising. Do Ryan and the other even talk? Don't get me wrong, I'm a Panic fan, I've seen them numerous times but I'm soo over them. They're more about drama than the music these days.

  33. 33

    Panic were [are] my fave band and i cant imagine my ipod without them. but panic without ryan and jon? who will write the lyrics?! Fair enough guitarists and bassisit are easy to replace, but ryan and jon are special :[
    i will support panic ryan and jonless and i will support ryans and jons new stuff. but seriouslyy. ryan cant sing? how the hell are they going to create a solo carerr?! :')
    well yes,. im very upset about this :(
    i need hugs

  34. 34

    worse. for damn sure. sure, anyone can play bass and guitar. but it just won't be the same.

  35. 35

    Re: BeccaIsShort – so true and thats like my worse nightmare, :(
    aww i totally forgot about pete, he must be really upset :[

  36. 36

    Re: NicoleLovesPATD – Its only a band. Get over it. Are you actually suprised? Brendon and Ryan dont even talk anymore and Ryan is an ass.

  37. 37

    i'm kinda glad. i think they all needed to bury panic and start their own things that allow them to showcase their talents, rather than be tied down by the whole panic thing. i think 1,000 tweens just died though.

  38. 38

    ive never even heard any of there songs , nor would i

    horrible music
    METAl for life

  39. 39

    Oh well… at least I got to see them front row one time… the show was effing amazing!

  40. 40

    Sure Ryan started the band but so did Spencer I've been a huge fan since the beginning and to tell you the truth I highly doubt that Ryan and Jon leaving the band will make them suck. as long as Brendan is singing nothing can be bad. This news made me super sad but I have all hope in the guys to create a life changing album. I hope success upon both bands but my heart belongs to Panic and it always will. Us fans will just have to Christmas's when there albums come out. As for all you people saying that Ryan is more talented the Brendan I say nay!!! Brendan is just as talented as Ryan if not more I mean he plays piano, Guitar, bass, and drums, not to mention that he has a 20 times stronger voice then Ryan ever will, Brendan displayed great Lyric ability in there latest album Pretty. Odd. sure they were shorter songs but with out him you would have nothing disagree all you want but without you know it would suck.

  41. 41

    my favorite band. i hope the two boys will finish out the rest of their tour with blink and fob.

  42. 42

    Better! Ryan tried to control the band and their last album sucked! BRING BACK THE TECHNO SOUND!

  43. 43

    Two isn't enough. Hopefully they ALL will be back together someday and make another album simliar to "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out."

  44. 44

    NO!!!!!!Ah, shucks!

  45. 45

    i'm thinking worse :(

  46. 46


  47. 47

    NOO! =[ It just won't be the same without them!

  48. 48

    Ryan Ross is a little bitch, glad he left. Brendan and Spencer will be fine without the stoners, I'm not worried.

  49. 49

    Why keep the Panic name? They are basically forming two separate bands…the naming should reflect that.

    Maybe on could be "Panic" and the other "At the Disco". LOL.

    Oh well, never listened to them anyway.

  50. 50

    These guys are awesome and they made just wonderful music for us. I don't know what the future will bring for Panic but I wish them all the best of luck. Sucks that Ryan and Jon left. :(

  51. 51

    Re: annamodugno – Hm, IDK….Because the Jonas Brothers are better than this petty BS? LOLs.

  52. 52

    I loved their 1st album, but thir 2nd one was just weird!

  53. 53

    NOOO!!! :(

  54. 54

    :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( it's so sad!

  55. 55

    im soo sad my friend told me a ruined my day please no ryan ross and jon walker i love this band dont goooooooo :( (

  56. 56

    Over-rated teen alt-pop/rock.
    They're the Jonas Brothers by another name.

  57. 57

    I'm sure this will offend many teenybops on here but they suck anyway. They sound just like Fall Out Boy who also suck. I am already upset that I have to sit through them both at the Blink 182 reunion show I'm going to next month. Now that's a good band!!

  58. 58

  59. 59

    These guys were good but that last album wasn't so hot. Ryan will probably go onto make great music as he seems talented.

  60. 60

    who cares. they're such a shitty band.

  61. 61

    its always abotu the money:(nt about the fans

  62. 62

    :( thats sooo sad!!!! R.I.P. panic! miss u much!

  63. 63

    Re: salemantoinette
    How would you know if they were 'horrible' if you've never even heard them.
    All metal (besides Damone) sounds the same.

  64. 64

    OMG! I cant belive this, im a huge fan of this guys, they are awsome! Anyway i dont think it would b the same without jon and ryan.. i mean Ryan is like the mastermind in there….. I hope they continue succesfully!!

  65. 65

    Jon had the least affect on the band (shortest stint in it), Ryan the most affect (not necessarily the best though).
    Brendon has a set of pipes, and Spencer seems like he could do something good. It could work.
    HOWEVER, that being said, Jon was the most awesome part of that band.

  66. 66

    fuck them. their music is shit anyways

  67. 67

    I kind of maybe cried when I found out. :/
    It's gonna' suck without Jon and Ryan, but I'm excited to hear what Brendon and Spencer will do without them.
    I'm also excited to hear what Ryan and Jon are doing.

  68. 68


  69. 69

    They are/were a great band and it's a real shame. Egos have definitely taken over here. That's the end of the road for these guys, it's over. Way too soon, too.

  70. 70

    now jon and ryan are free to do (cough cough) other things with each other

  71. 71

    Better! Brendon and Spencer have always been my favourites. I like Jon fine, but Ryan seems like a douchbag. I kinda hope he crashes and burns. He may be the mastermind, but they never would have gotten signed without Brendon's voice.
    Plus, Ryan, Jon, AND Spencer could have left and Brendon would still be able to pull that shit out.

    Bring on the Brencer.

    And bring back Brent (jokes).

  72. 72

    i cannot believe this! I love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

  73. 73


  74. xDD says – reply to this


    0mg im so freakin mad! but the only thing thats keeping me 4rm being really really angry is that brendon is still in the band xD

  75. 75

    Wow, Panic on Perez Hilton. : )

    As much as I love them…I think Brendon and Spencer will do okay, and Ryan and Jon not so much. Going solo from the band never really works out too well as far as I can tell. Sonny Moore anyone? Good luck to Panic, sad that it has to end.

  76. 76

    it's not really panic at the disco now…i mean, it was ryan's band first. however now they are free to bring back the (!).

  77. 77

    =[[[ I'm all sad now! I might cry, I love them. They were and still are amazing.

  78. 78

    Well the band cant be the same without Ryan.

  79. 79

    I really hope that Panic continues with their work! they are so very talented and I love them…I think Bden and Spencer will be just as good without ryan and jon..even though its a shame that they are leaving!
    brendon can play so many instruments and write songs!and if he doesnt write the songs then someone will do it for them…just like they do for 90% of singers!!

  80. 80

    I still Love Ya Brendon!!!

  81. 81

    To be completely honest, I thought Brendon would be the first to leave the band. Because in my opinion, Brendon is the most talented member. Sure, Ryan can write some great lyrics, but Brendion can sing better, play more instruments and better than Ryan. But whatever, its their decision. Just hate to see a great band fall apart.

  82. 82

    are you joking? omg they just ruined the band…… i doubt people are gonna listen to a 2 member band called panic at the disco….too bad…
    i loved them alot… well il try to get into what those two come up with.. :(

  83. 83

    So now we have Team Brendon and Spencer and Team I'm irrelevant and want to snort all of my money up my nose?

  84. 84

    too bad.

  85. 85

    As long as they don't keep doing the crappy music they just came out with they will be fine. Go back to original panic and things will work out for them just fine.

  86. 86

    Emo kids are going to be crying tonight.

  87. 87

    emo bands don't last forever. when is fallout boy going to break up so pete wentz can finally go away??

  88. 88

    Re: soapgal – i agree with you completely. although, i flat out refused to buy blink 182 tickets because i refuse to take any part in supporting fall out boy in any way. blink would have been better off doing the whole tour with weezer, at least at those shows the majority of the crowd won't be 14 year old girls and their parents

  89. 89

    who cares….?

  90. 90

    who gives a shit…they suck anyway!!

  91. 91

    How can you have a two member band anyway?

  92. 92

    I have a feeling that their just going through some tough times.
    kind of like blink 182.
    they'll get back together. :]

  93. 93

    gosh darn it

  94. 94

    hahaha fear me ya'll

  95. 95

    But if they don't I just have to hope that they have a good time in there individual projects. Oh and I think that current PATD has a lot of potential without Ryan or Jon.

    p.s. pretty odd was there nicest cd yet

  96. 96

    I'm so sad now!

  97. 97

    They can find another bassist & guitarist. Just hope that they go back to how they were in their first album. They use to be so good.

  98. 98

    thts a good thing bc the last panic album suckedd. some weird folk-pop crap.

  99. 99

    just replace them! as long as brendon's still in the band, i'm not too worried.

  100. 100

    that sucks…there last album was amazing!
