Combine copious amounts of alcohol, band dudes bored on tour, one of pop-punks biggest bands, and a camera—you’ve got a great tribute to Drunk History just in time for the holidays.

Brendon Urie, frontman for the band Panic! At The Disco, sat down on tour with friends Fall Out Boy to give a rambling and drunken account of the band, from origin to present day. It’s stuff fans know by heart, but with the Drunk History treatment it becomes the stuff of legend.  

Drunk History usually trades in big historical moments and quirky unknown stories, although it has focused on pop culture in some episodes. But turning the lens to band histories is a nice twist, especially when the narrator is Urie, who sloshes beer over himself, can’t stop laughing, and had the benefit of being around for most of the story he’s telling while touring with his own band. Fall Out Boy, for their part, paint on their old hairstyles and mock up their abridged history in a great homage to the Comedy Central show.

Aside from fronting a rock band, Urie also has a decent Vine following, something he achieved separate of the band while on hiatus between albums, prompting a lot of Vine fans to not even realize he was a musician. Since he’s no stranger to viral success, we think Urie’s drunken musical pop-punk histories should be a new trend for 2015.
