Panic! at the Disco's 'Victorious' Is About Brendon Urie's Lack of Athletic Skills
Panic! at the Disco still hasn’t announced its fifth studio album, but at the rate the new songs are coming, we might have a dozen tracks before we know it.
Earlier this month Panic! at the Disco premiered a new song called “Death of a Bachelor,” and now they’ve given us another new track called “Victorious.” Check out the lyric video below.
On Panic!’s official site, frontman Brendon Urie likened the song’s world-beating intensity to his own athletic ability. “I was never really great at sports. Never picked first for the team,” he wrote. “But what I missed in that regard, I made up for in passion and intensity… That’s truly victorious. Giving it your all when it’s all you have. Giving ‘em hell to get a taste of heaven.”
On Sept. 27, Billboard celebrated the 10th anniversary of Panic! at the Disco’s debut album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, with an oral history featuring interviews with Urie, Pete Wentz, producer Matt Squire, and more. That was the first release on Wentz’s Decaydance Records (now called DCD2), for which Panic! still records today.
