One band that I always love playing in my classes is Panic at The Disco. The band was formed in 2004, but they have that classic rock sound that I love. A few of their songs that I've used recently and had great luck with are Miss Jackson and This is Gospel from their 2013 album Too Weird To Live, Too Young to Die!.
Their newest album, Death of a Bachelor, is set to release in January of 2016 and I'm loving the singles that have been released so far. Here they are, in order of release:
“Hallelujah” was released as the lead single on April 20, 2015. Use it as a hill or flat road at 80 rpm's. Fun fact: The very beginning of the song samples Question 67 and 68 by Chicago.
“Victorious” was released on September 29, 2015. I've used this as as fast flat road and a warm up. It could also be used as a flat road.
“Emperor's New Clothes”was released on October 22, 2015. Another fast flat road at around 96 rpm's. You can also use this one as speed work-accelerating on the chorus.
“LA Devotee” was released on the 27th of November 2015 (today)! It's around 88 rpm's so it would work great as a flat road. It would also make a great warm up.
I can't wait to see what the rest of the album brings!
