If you love Panic! at the Disco, you're probably looking for similar bands with the same sound as Brendon Urie and his versatile voice. This list ranks the best bands like Panic! at the Disco, including both obvious choices and a few that may surprise you. Your votes affect these Panic! at the Disco recommendations, so don't be shy about expressing your opinion for each band!

Panic! at the Disco was formed by childhood friends Brendon Urie, Spencer Smith, Ryan Ross, and Brent Wilson in 2004. However, Urie is the only remaining member of that foursome, as the lineup has seen many changes over the years. Their sound has changed almost as much as their lineup, but that's probably what's kept them alive and still thriving today. After all, "High Hopes" was one of the biggest songs of 2018.

For bands similar to Panic! at the Disco, you have to start with Fall Out Boy. Vocalist Patrick Stump has a voice very similar to Urie's, and both bands play within the same genres. Even more bands like Panic! at the Disco include Cobra Starship, The 1975, and The Veins, a band formed by former members Ross and Walker.

There are a lot of pop-punk bands you can't go wrong with, but the goal of this list is to have the best bands similar to Panic! at the Disco towards the top.
