Someone made a Twitter for the skunk Brendon Urie held


At 97X Next Big Thing this year we decided to bring in the skunk rescue so bands could have something unique to interact with backstage.

Shortly after this photo of Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco was posted holding one of the skunks, a Twitter handle was created for him. 

Meet Brendon Skunk. 

Brendon Skunk is full of fun facts.

And loves playing with Panic song lyrics. 

Brendon Skunk is very soft.

And loves helping promote his fav band.

Check out more from this famous little guy. 

High Hopes is officially Panic! At The Disco’s highest charting song

P!ATD has cranked out hit after hit over the years but it’s their most recent smash ‘High Hopes’ that’s breaking new records for the band. 

Billboard just shared their Hot 100 charts for this week (ending Dec. 1) and “High Hopes” jumped from No. 8 to No. 6. That means it is now Panic!’s highest-charting song to date, passing their 2006 hit ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’.

Great timing right? Panic! At The Disco are set to headline Next Big Thing for us this Sunday December 2nd! 

Make sure you have tickets!!
