What’s gotten music so terrified lately? EW listens to this summer’s most anxiety-riddled bands and prescribes a little something to help them calm down.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO
Affliction Obsessive fear of not overproducing every track on their CD. Also scared of short song titles and losing Fall Out Boy’s phone number.
Remedy Aromatherapy; three months opening for Iron Maiden and/or Slayer.
THE PANIC CHANNEL
Affliction Paranoia that guitarist Dave Navarro likes hosting Rock Star just a little too much.
Remedy Vitamin D; a visit to the ropes course for some trust building.
Affliction Hysterical blindness prevents them from seeing the ’90s jam-band revolution is dead.
Remedy Taking away the bongos would be a start.
