Watch Brendon Urie Cover Under Pressure With Jimmy Fallon And The Roots
On the most recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie joined forces with Jimmy and The Roots for a fantastic rendition of Under Pressure.
The (remote) cover of the Queen and David Bowie classic was done with a multitude of different ‘instruments’ from each musician’s house, with members of The Roots using a butter knife and wine glass, a frosting spatula and toaster, and even a frisbee to create the backing music to Brendon and Jimmy’s excellent vocals.

“Oh ya know, just channeling Bowie and Queen with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots,” tweeted Panic! casually of the wholesome rendition, which of course isn’t Brendon’s first time covering Queen. In fact, he takes on Bohemian Rhapsody at almost every single live show these days, as well as releasing it for the 2016 Suicide Squad soundtrack.
