Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has released what could be his most entertaining video to date with “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time.”
The video starts with a beautiful woman, dolling herself up, hitting a bar and ultimately seducing Urie. But things quickly go from bad to worse for the Las Vegas singer.
Any further description will give away the plot, and the plot is twisted one, disturbing and a lot of fun. Let’s just say the special effects are amazing.
Of the song’s origin, Urie says he wanted to sing about parties he’d actually experienced. “I wanted to write a party song just strictly about parties that I’ve been to, things I’ve seen… how crazy that’s been,” Urie told Radio.com. “You can’t threaten me with a good time. If you think I’m going to be scared of insanity at a party then you thought wrong ‘cause I’m in. I’m one hundred percent in.”
But a part of the song that young fans may think is familiar but can’t pinpoint the origin is the unmistakable B-52s “Rock Lobster” guitar riff at the start of the Panic track.
Urie explained how the riff ended up on the song.
“When I was a kid, the first time I heard B-52s, I was like, this is a party. Every video was them partying with people. That song encapsulated a party to me. I had that sample as a place-holder, not thinking I’d be able to use it or get publishing rights to it in any way and finally they had heard it through my management and they said, ‘Yeah, that’s cool, you can use it.’ That was amazing because I had plans to replace it.”
