Long time Panic! At The Disco manager Scott Nagelberg revealed on Instagram some interesting facts about the band's debut record A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, 14 years after its original release.

Posting a copy of the original demo CD on his IG handle, Rob revealed that every song in the tracklist originally had a different title except for "Time To Dance". The record's carrier single, for example, was titled "Flam Chorus" before it was changed to the now iconic "I Write Sins Not Tragedies". Wow! You learn something new everyday.


Unearthed the master of AFYCSO while packing up the apartment this weekend- almost 14 years old to the date! Nobody could have predicted the wild ride ahead with four kids who had never played a show outside of Vegas. I was 24 and remember hearing people discuss that letting me managing Panic would be good experience to learn how to make a record (which I had never done before)... learn I did, and continue to. The heart, creativity, trust and dialogue with Brendon is truly something special, and if you couldn’t tell, I’m feeling super grateful (and a bit reflective) to be playing role in all of the beautiful insanity that is Panic. #FlamChorus
