"That inclusivity in the bridge of 'Dancing's Not A Crime' tho..."
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Panic! At The Disco released their sixth studio album last week (June 22) and it's already one of the best records of the year. Fact.
'Roaring 20s' has emerged as a fan favourite from the album, 'High Hopes' is still giving people life since it dropped in May, the fandom is sobbing over 'Dying In LA' but it's 'Dancing's Not A Crime' that has TRULY sent fans screaming into the night.
As we all know, Brendon Urie loves a good bisexual/non-gender specific lyric (Girls/Girls/Boys, anyone?) and looks like he delivered again in the form of some inclusive lyrics in the bridge of 'Dancing's Not A Crime' - and EVERRRRRYONE is loving it.
The inclusive lyrics appear in the middle eight of the song, where Brendon sings:
"Ooo ooo ooo, what's come over you
Baby, just tell me now
Ooo ooo ooo, won't we make that move
'Cause I just wanna be
Your boyfriend/girlfriend, oh yeah
And I just wanna be
Your boyfriend/girlfriend, oh yeah, oh yeah"
Fans are of course losing it, loving it and tweeting about the inclusive lyric in the song:
