We always experience a warm, fuzzy feeling deep within our cold, dark, emo hearts anytime Jeopardy! references our scene. Whether it’s a twenty one pilots inspired question or a contestant confessing they’d spend their winnings on Taco Bell, there’s always something we can relate to in this game show.
However, there’s been a few occasions when contestants have left us scratching our heads, like when one guy thought Jack White was Eminem. While most of these mistakes are pretty hilarious, one contestant’s most recent mix-up is a borderline emo sin.
Never mix up the emo trinity.
Jeopardy! recently featured Panic! At The Disco as the answer to their $400 question in the “We Will Rock You” category.
Host Alex Trebek asked, “In 2018 this band ‘didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision, always had high, high hopes.'”
So when the contest should have answered “Who is Panic! At The Disco?” he answered “Who is Fall Out Boy?”
You can check out the hilarious footage below.
hey look ma, we…… made it?!? 🤦♂️😜

How did no one get this answer?!
Fall Out Boy had the perfect response.
i’ll take “you’ll get ‘em next time, James” for $500, Alex https://t.co/fXfMmK342B

Fan reactions to P!ATD’s tweet made the whole ordeal even better.

More on Jeopardy!
Last month, beloved Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek announced he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
A few days ago, Trebek released a video after filming the game show’s 35th anniversary season finale, providing fans with an update on his health.
“I wanted to once again thank you for your continuing messages of encouragement and support particularly the many cards I’ve received from young people. I’m touched beyond words,” Trebek said. “I’ve always tried to be straight with you and I’m not going to stop now, so despite what you may have heard, I’m feeling good. I’m continuing with my therapy.”
“We — by we, the staff — is already working on our next season. … So I look forward to seeing you once again in September with all kinds of good stuff.”
