Panic! At The Disco got their start in 2004 as a pop-rock group that gradually developed into a solo project for the remaining member and frontman, Brendon Urie. The newest incarnation hasn't slowed down Urie in the slightest, as Death of a Bachelor is set to be the band's first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
