Battle of the Mona Lisas: Panic at the Disco vs. Bayside
What is it with that 16th century masterpiece that is suddenly so… relevant?
A couple weeks ago we got to hear Panic at the Disco‘s first single ‘The Ballad of Mona Lisa‘ off the upcoming Vices and Virtues–and today Queens quartet Bayside released a stream of a brand new song titled ‘Mona Lisa’.
Coincidence? Most likely.
Bayside recently played it acoustic for radio 104.5:
The songs don’t sound anything alike, but let’s do a little side by side for FUNSIES:
A sampling of Bayside’s lyrics: Mona Lisa you’ve really done something / you’re my black ice on my road to whole some / you’ve done a number on all of my organs
And Panic’s: Whoa Mona Lisa, you’re guaranteed to run this town / Whoa Mona Lisa I’d pay to see you frown / Oh Mona Lisa, Say what you mean tell me I’m right and let the sun rain down on me give me a sign / I wanna believe
Is homegirl ’bout to become a tired cliche?
Yeah, I just called Mona Lisa my homegirl. ‘Sup, Da Vinci?
Bayside’s Killing Time comes out 2/22 and Vices, after long last, comes out on 3/22
