Panic! At The Disco, 2005

Some bands are know for their notoriously long song titles—we’re looking at you, Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco. But thanks to P!ATD manager Scott Nagelberg, we’ve learned that the band’s working titles on their debut album were a lot shorter.

And a bit more confusing.

Nagelberg stumbled across the 14-year-old Panic! At The Disco demo while packing up his apartment, taking to Instagram to share the rare find with fans.

“Unearthed the master of AFYCSO while packing up the apartment this weekend- almost 14 years old to the date! Nobody could have predicted the wild ride ahead with four kids who had never played a show outside of Vegas. I was 24 and remember hearing people discuss that letting me managing Panic would be good experience to learn how to make a record (which I had never done before)… learn I did, and continue to. The heart, creativity, trust and dialogue with Brendon is truly something special, and if you couldn’t tell, I’m feeling super grateful (and a bit reflective) to be playing role in all of the beautiful insanity that is Panic. #FlamChorus”

The working titles are only 1-2 words long, with some titles leaving fans to wonder where on earth they came up with it.
