Brendon Urie (born 1987) is most famous for being the lead singer of core Bandom band Panic! at the Disco. He was raised Mormon and plays multiple instruments (piano, guitar, cello, accordion, bass guitar). He was invited to join the band by founding members Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Brent Wilson, leading to them being signed to Pete Wentz's Decaydance label. This caused him to have to move out from his family's home. Brendon is now married to Sarah Urie.

He is the only original member still currently touring with the band. See Wikipedia page for more detail.

Brendon came out as pansexual in 2018.

Fanon Themes and Tropes

Examples Wanted: Editors are encouraged to add more examples or a wider variety of examples.

  • High school AUs, often focusing on the time Brendon was "kicked out" by his parents,
  • Related: h/c in general, whether bullying or injury,
  • Religious themes due to his relationship to the Mormon faith,
  • Brendon is often depicted as being energetic/hyperactive, especially due to his canonical ADHD
  • Angst/conflict related to his parents disowning him, either for being gay or renouncing his faith, after an offhand comment Brendon made about his parents 'kicking him out' when he decided he wanted to do music instead of going to college, from an interview in 2007. He later clarified that he was exaggerating.


During Panic's (2013?) break, Brendon became famous on social video site Vine, leading to many astonished tweets about "Brendon from Vine" forming a band when the band released a new single in 2013.[2] The phrase has become an in-joke for the fandom.[3]

Brendon's forehead is supposedly extra large and has become a meme. It is not clear when this meme arose, though the "brendon urie's forehead" tumblr tag dates to April 9, 2015.
