Panic! At The Disco Dismiss 'Dangerous' Label

LATEST: PANIC! AT THE DISCO have furiously dismissed rivals the KILLERS' claims their pop punk music is "dangerous". The BUT IT'S BETTER IF YOU DO rockers are enraged Killers frontman BRANDON FLOWERS warned British music fans to be wary of the 'Emo' movement, insisting it will sweep the nation and change the teenage generation forever. Killers guitarist DAVE KEUNING told UK music magazine NME, "All those bands, FALL OUT BOY, Panic! At The Disco, they are only influenced by each other and BLINK 182. How can that be a good thing?" Flowers added, "Emo, whatever you want to call it, is dangerous." However, Panic! singer BRENDAN URIE replies, "Do I think of myself as dangerous? "Not at all! We're really harmless and innocent in a way. It's a shame that he (Flowers) feels that way really."

U know what the killers are just hating on Bands that are better than theirs. Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco are not dangerous they are cool bands and haven't done anything to the Killers. They deserve some respect from the killers just like the killers want them to be respected. I'm going to tell u how it is I have both a Panic! Cd and a Fall Out Boy and not one Killers cd i just think they are being rude to other bands and that is not how u get moree fans thats how u loose them.

Am I the only one who is sick of Brandon Flowers stupid comments? He has a massive ego that far, far outweighs his talent. You just are not all that Brandon.
