The reaction from fans has been pretty crazy: Some are delighted about the end product between the icons, while others had strong feelings against it. However, what surprised us the most were the people who had no idea who the Panic! At The Disco frontman was. Check out some of the best (and heartbreaking) reactions below.
1. Some think they’re saving the music industry…
in 10 years we’re all just gonna be like “remember when taylor swift and brendon urie saved the music industry” pic.twitter.com/LC503M2sAw

2. …and complimenting Urie on his versatility.
Brendon Urie is potentially the only artist who can sound good collaborating with both Every Time I Die and Taylor Swift.

3. There were a few fans completely against the collab…
Honestly ME! would be so much better if Brendon Urie wasn’t in it. Like who still likes Fall Out Boy in 2019 besides their Twitter stans? And the spelling is fun chant part is so cringey!!!

4. …because they saw it as a major departure from classic Panic! At The Disco…
Yeah Taylor Swift& Brendon Urie's new song is cute, I do like it but it also makes me kinda sad, its confirmation that the old #PanicAtTheDisco /#BrendonUrie's music is gone & I dont think its coming back. I really loved thier old stuff& Im sad its gone Ill miss it
Please no hate

5. …and a “sell out” move that many defended.
There's people who are seriously calling @brendonurie a sellout. I'm sorry..? How would you like it if you worked with one of your favorite celebrities on a song and people call YOU a sellout? Saying how much you hate a person over song is just showing how much of an ass you are.

6. Surprisingly, there were others who had no idea who Urie was.
Swifties after seeing ME! music video:
