This is a music cover we can totally get on board with. On Monday, Panic! At the Disco covered The Weeknd’s “Starboy” and it sounds like a completely different song.

While visiting the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge this week, the band, which is currently on tour, did their own rendition of The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s “Starboy” and it was amazing.

The Las Vegas originated band slowed down the track and added in all of their instruments for an echoey and eerie version of the song that has a sound all its own.

It was edgy and fresh and definitley fit into the iconic Panic! sound that we’ve all been rocking out to since the band’s inception in 2004.

The punk-rock band just finished the European leg of their tour, which is linked to their latest album, Death of a Bachelor, which hit shelves in January. They will continue to tour in Australia and New Zealand as well as a large number of venues in the U.S. beginning in the new year.

While we won’t be getting any new music from the band, The Weeknd is about to drop his new album, Starboy on November 25, so get excited.

Which version do you like best?
