In the Post #108: Panic at the Disco return with ‘Miss Jackson’ single from forthcoming album ‘Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die’

I’m sorry Miss Jackson, but I am in fact for real. Someone has gone and maliciously nicked the title of the song in your honour and turned it into a nu-emo call to arms. Apologies, Andre 3000.

Yes, Panic at the Disco are back, and with that inevitably the comparisons to their contemporaries Fall Out Boy follow. None more so than with their new single, ‘Miss Jackson’, but more on that later. Even after significant line-up changes since their debut ‘A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out’, Panic at the Disco are still led by the mischievous Brandon Urie, who when he isn’t busy having cascades of urine thrown at him, actually doubles as a pretty charismatic and charming young frontman.

‘Miss Jackson’ is still a departure from their earlier material, however, that can be expected with the Vegas boys shying away from calling people whores and the like in their past two records. This song though leaves me thinking; have they gone and done a Fall Out Boy, by releasing something a bit off the wall, but altogether very radio friendly, much like ‘My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark’. They’ve always shared a close affinity with the emo poster boys, and this song while having an inherent replayability is nothing that will have people remembering the glory days of PATD.

Instead, indifference and a relative sense of “oh, they’re still about” is all I felt with the arrival of ‘Miss Jackson’, and while the nostalgia that follows them is welcome, you won’t hear me squealing with joy at Panic’s return.


‘Miss Jackson’ is the first single from Panic at the Disco’s next album ‘Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die’, out this autumn.
