Brendon Urie just left us truly shook with an unexpected reveal about the Panic! classic...
Well we certainly weren't expecting to read this today - apparently we may have all been singing the wrong lyrics to Panic! At The Disco's classic 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies' all this time without even noticing.
Panic! At The Disco
Yeah. Mind blown.
It all started when one Twitter user posted a screenshot of the lyric book from A Fever You Can't Sweat Out with a noticeable difference highlighted...
the fact it's always been "a goddamn door" and not "the goddamn door" is REALLY fucking me up right now pic.twitter.com/VU3K1vsgZ3— raquel (@Ruhquel) January 30, 2017
I know right? Surely it's "closing THE goddamn door"...right?!
Obviously, the fans were freaking out and debating like mad!
@floodedlung i saw it in panic's mentions and checked the lyric booklet and literally had to sit down— raquel (@Ruhquel) January 30, 2017
We all need a sit down.
But look, as much as we can debate either side of this argument, only one man could truly settle things once and for all. And, luckily for us, a famous friend of his got straight on the case.
Enter detective Halsey.
. @halsey Hahaha I can't. That's some Berenstein/Berenstain shit right there.— Brendon Urie (@brendonurie) January 31, 2017
WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN BRENDON?!?!?! WHICH IS IT???
(Don't worry, he soon cleared everything up).
Btw, there is no answer. I've sung "Sins" both ways. Doesn't matter. Trust me, it's all right.— Brendon Urie (@brendonurie) January 31, 2017
So there ya go. Nobody is wrong. But we're still gonna listen out for which version he uses at every concert from now on just to make sure we know which one is slightly less wrong. Then maybe our eye will stop frantically twitching every time we think about it.
Looks like this is basically an example of the so-called "Mandela Effect" - that thing when everyone believes something that didn't actually happen, named after the people who believed Nelson Mandela died while in prison back in the 1980s when he actually died in 2013. There's loads of examples in pop culture. Like, did you know Darth Vader never says "Luke, I am your father"? True story.
So, anyway now you kno...wait...hang on. What's this we've just spotted?
There's an ENTIRE DELETED LYRIC?
Brendon Urie - you sure know how to keep us all on the edge of our seats.
