Fiona Apple Refuses To Let Panic At The Disco! Sample Her Song

When Fiona says no

I have never been a fan of Panic at the Disco!, I have actually never really listened to them since the few songs I have accidentally listened to, have always let me totally indifferent or have even irritated me… and after this interview, what can I say, I will definitively despise their frontman Brendon Urie?

Their last album was kind of dance with hip-hop rhythms and they are apparently the type to sample stuff from other artists. In an interview for Revolt News (see the video below), Urie explained that one of their songs (the album single now entitled ‘Miss Jackson’) was supposed to sample Fiona Apple’s ‘Every Single Night’. But too bad for them, Fiona said no. Ha! Good for her! In the video, Urie says he is still a big fan and loves her stuff but he can’t resist to call her ‘bitch’ during the interview… super classy dude! (he kind of overuses this dude term all along his short monologue). Sure he was mad, but what? This is her song, she still has control over it. The Panic at the Disco! song was originally called ‘Bad Apple’, which may not have been a good way to approach Fiona by the way, and he plays a tiny bit of a rough demo of the original song with the sample from Apple’s song, and I am very happy Fiona said no!

This questions the bad habit to use samples from other musicians, yes it’s lazy, and pretentious, why would he think Fiona would automatically say yes? Furthermore, according to the site ‘who’, Fiona Apple’s songs have already been sampled before, interestingly by a lot of hip hop/R&B. So either she hates Panic at the Disco! (and I would not blame her for this) or the other ones didn’t ask for her permission, or both!
