When will people call them out on this already? It's rediculous.
Here are the Killers in early 2005, in the Mr. Brightside video that defined their style at that time. Clean, glam, with a lot of eyeliner:
Panic! at the Disco popped out of nowhere later in the year looking like this. Hmm, look familiar?:
Oh well alright, you'll say "lay off, that's just one time! It could have been a coincidence!" Very fair point, indeed. But- hold on! What is this? The Killers changed their style quite a bit with Sam's Town in mid-2006. Gone was the eyeliner, replaced by rugged facial hair, vests- western cowboy style, basically. No one, I repeat NO ONE looked like this at the time. You can check if you don't believe.
Well that's good, now there won't be any similarities with P!ATD anymore and all will be forgiven, right? WRONG! Those pesky kids came out late 2007 looking like this:
I think even the most avid Panic fan can admit that this is very strange. I won't say anything about my opinion of PATD's music, because well let's just not go there. But COME ON... can't they have their own goddamn style? Is it that hard to be a little original? Don't they realize how pathetic this makes them look? I don't understand. They probably have a million stylists at their disposal. Use them! Tell them to go a different direction! The Killers don't even have a stylist and they look way better, AND original. PATD: get your own style, and maybe then I will have some respect for you.
