Panic! Frontman Bares Chest to Make Peace With Dresden Doll Fans
We’ve been catching up on this Panic! at the Disco/ Dresden Dolls controversy and feeling like a timeline or some notecards would be helpful. It seems that during this summer’s Panic! at the Disco tour, the Dresden Dolls, who opened for Panic!, had some serious problems with both group’s respective fans loathing each other. We can’t really see flocks of gum-smacking mall-rats digging the Dresden Dolls’ wacky show. And they didn’t.
In this epic blog entry
, Dresden Dolls frontwoman Amanda Palmer describes her frustration and suggests a solution involving the boys from Panic!, some silent-movie-style video footage and the Dresden Dolls’ new single “Backstabber.”
After watching the results of this collaboration, we guess the point is to make fun of the feud between the bands’ fans by pretending to kill each other? It doesn’t totally work and some serious backstory is necessary but listen, you get to gaze upon the bare chest of Panic! frontman Brendon Urie and we know thousands of those Dresden Dolls haters out there will enjoy that ****.
