20 Celebrities Reveal How They Got Famous
Panic! At The Disco has changed significantly since their “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” days. For one thing, the “band” is now just Brendon Urie doing his thing, and Brendon has traded in his pop-punk roots for Top 40 hits. Back in the early ’00s, Brendon and his bandmates got their celebrity big break in a very 2004 way: by messaging Pete Wentz on LiveJournal. Brendon and Ryan Ross obsessively sent their demo to the Fall Out Boy bassist until he agreed to meet with them, and after hearing two songs during their band practice, he immediately signed them to his new imprint label Decaydance Records.
