Panic! At the Disco’s “LA Devotee” Clearly Celebrates Hollywood’s Satanic System



Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

The video for LA Devotee is about a young boy being tortured and brainwashed by the band’s lead singer while all kinds of satanic symbols float around. In short: It sums up everything Hollywood is about. 

When the top comments of a YouTube video say …

I honestly expected LA Devote to have a bright sunny video not a satanic one

It’s getting harder and harder to convince my parents that the music I listen to is not satanic

… you know that things are getting blatant. While the song “LA Devotee” is your typical uptempo-radio-friendly tune with a catchy chorus, the video is a dark, troubling experience. Indeed, the lead singer Brendon Urie is seen taking pleasure in torturing a child in an all-out, satanic brainwashing session. Preying on children, taking pleasure in making them suffer, brainwashing them, black magick rituals: All of the occult elite’s favorite things are crammed in this short music video.

The word “devotee” means “a strong believer in a particular religion or god”Panic! at the Disco‘s video clearly exposes the true religion of Hollywood … and they appear happy to be part of it.

Let’s look at the video.

Preying on Children

The video begins with a young girl realizing that she is being followed. She is then kidnapped by someone dressed in red.

Preying on children: The occult elite’s favorite sport.

As the camera pans out, we see a crop circle shaped in something resembling an alchemical symbol. The exclamation point is taken from the band’s name, indicating that they’re the ones behind this.

We then see a young boy being strapped to a chair inside a dark, creepy room.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

Yes, it is Noah Schnapp, the boy that gets kidnapped in Stranger Things.

Using Will from Stranger Things is a rather appropriate choice. As I’ve stated in my article The Hidden Symbolism of “Stranger Things“, the series reveals some sinister aspects of the MKULTRA system. Will, played by Noah Schnapp, gets kidnapped by the Demogorgon, a monster that represents the Satanic, monstrous side of the occult elite.

In LA Devotee, Schnapp is kidnapped again (poor kid) and forced to watch Brendon Urie sing. Although that is already a cruel form of torture, things get worse. Indeed, the song is part of a wider process of trauma-based mind control. As stated in my article Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control, mind control is an unholy mix of abuse, torture and satanic rituals in order to cause trauma. The boy in the video is subjected to all of this.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

A video camera records the boy being tortured. This reflects how elite circles enjoy watching this kind of sickening snuff.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

This creepy figure conducts dark rituals wearing a mask with Baphomet-style horns.

When the song starts, the kid begins singing in an automatic matter – as if he was programmed to sing on cue.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

The kid programmed to sing: An apt way of representing youth being brainwashed by mass media.

Brendon is projected on a screen in front of the kid as he sings with a demented look on his face. He truly appears to be enjoying torturing the boy. An image flashed for a split second explains what motivates him in doing this.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

For split second, a symbol resembling the sigil of the Church of Satan is flashed on Brendon’s face.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

The symbol features Baphomet’s head inside an inverted pentagram (symbol of Black magick) with another inverted pentagram on its forehead.

Brendon Urie apparently enjoys being the devil. The video The Emperor’s New Clothes is basically about him slowly turning into the devil.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

Brendon in the video The Emperor’s New Clothes.

While this disturbing stuff is happening, the lyrics explain that what we are witnessing is the true religion of LA, the home of the entertainment business.

The black magic of Mulholland Drive
Swimming pools under desert skies
Drinking white wine in the blushing light
Just another LA Devotee
Sunsets on the evil eye
Invisible to the Hollywood shrine
Always on the hunt for a little more time
Just another LA Devotee

The first line of the chorus directly mentions the “black magic” of Mulholland Drive, the iconic street that crosses through Hollywood. David Lynch’s enigmatic movie Mulholland Dr. cryptically refers to the dark side of Hollywood as well. The line “sunsets on the evil eye” is another direct reference to the occult elite ruling Hollywood (which is also crossed by Sunset Blvd). Altogether the lyrics imply that those who take part in Hollywood’s industry are part of a sick cult … they’re LA Devotees.

The boy is then given something to drink.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

The girl that got kidnapped at the beginning of the video reappears and offers the boy something to drink. MK slaves are often used in the programming of other slaves.

The drink given to the boy most likely represents psychedelic drugs which are used in actual MK programming to facilitate trauma. Ccreepy images flash on screen, the kind that would be used to traumatize drugged slaves.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

A big goat head is quickly flashed on screen. More satanic stuff.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

Animal masks are used in satanic rituals and in MK programming.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

This image flashes so quickly it is barely discernible. These semi-subliminal images cause an unsettling feeling in the viewers.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

Blood dripping over a skull: A symbolic way of representing the elite’s love for blood sacrifices.

The boy’s trauma is then taken a step further.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

A bunch of “witches” attach wires to the boy’s head.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

As the song gets more intense, the boy is seen being electroshocked. Who wants to see a kid suffering in music video?

Electroshock torture is a well-known technique used in MK Ultra to cause trauma and dissociation. Combined with the drugs, the rituals and the brainwashing, the video leaves no doubts as to what it is referring to.

After convulsing violently for long seconds, the boy is knocked out of consciousness. This apparently makes Brendon very happy.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

Brendon smiles sadistically as if saying “I’m about to have some fun”.

Panic! At the Disco's "LA Devotee" Clearly Celebrates Hollywood's Satanic System

The last image of the video shows Brendon walking towards the boy in a menacing matter.

What exactly are you going to do, Brendon? Beat the kid up? Rape him? What the heck? Yes, this video seriously ends with the lead singer about to abuse a helpless kid that was just tortured. There is no going around it, there is no “second meaning” or “deeper meaning”. It is just unapologetically evil.

In Conclusion

Panic! At the Disco is not an obscure, hardcore niche group. It is a mainstream band, winning all kinds of awards, and making poppy, radio-friendly music that is mostly aimed at young people. LA Devotee depicts the lead singer masterminding an operation where a boy is kidnapped, strapped to a chair, drugged, brainwashed, subjected to occult rituals, and electroshocked. And at the end of the video, his ordeal is not even over. Brendon is just getting started (seriously, is he going to rape him? What the heck?).

The video for LA Devotee depicts Brendon as a mind-control handler and celebrates how the occult elite partakes in this horror in total impunity. On a wider scale, the video represents how, through mass media, the youth of the entire world is brainwashed into believing that all of this great and cool, which leads them to worship their favorite stars. The ultimate goal: To create just another LA Devotee.

I’d like to leave this planet, please.

Kev allah

I had that thought once. I thought if death is sweet then how can I fear prison? Thus the greatest journey ever taken was embarked upon. The journey to find out just who really is behind the smoke screen. And when I find them I’m gonna kill them.


Are you ready to face death? What if you get trapped in another prison? For all eternity?
your assuming you will have any sort of power in the next life to do what you want.
Your enemy satan is here now, in this life.
you need a Savior that has already overcome death and Satan.
This is the Lord Jesus Christ.


I don’t even know if God exist anymore. All this s--t happening in this world makes you wonder if there is a higher figure out there who watches us, or just evil and powerful people who prey on the weak. I wish I wasn’t born here. I really can’t take it anymore. I mean, how can someone watch this and think it’s normal or original or something…


God do exist. He does not allow this all happen but He gave us (human)freedom to choose. If a person chooses to belong to this Satanic world it his or her decision but God gives us always that guilt and final chance when we die. He loves us all. and also it is in the Bible that this world is belong to the prince of darkness but God gives us that graces and protections and guiding us always via His guardian angels who keeps us being guided. Just pray and believes in Him!


I see how you feel Alexandra, too much evil and wickedness to even comprehend but we’re not alone, there is a God, the Almighty the one that has created all the beautiful things on this planet. Even though he has allowed satan to have a hold of this world for a while, he won’t let him do it forever though. God will soon get rid of satan and his wicked helpers (demons).


Oh, so God DID allow Satan to have a hold of this world? Then if he DID as you wrote, then he also allowed all this to happen.


easy to say that when you don’t do your research and search the scriptures. remember the bible encompasses the beginning to the end of time on this earth. all things happen for a reason and the sovereign power of God. I once thought the same as you until He lead to me simply pick up the book and READ.


If the bible encompases the beginning to the end, that implies everything inbetween. so whatever is going to happen IS going to happen because its already writte out for us to enact. that means no free will. every choice you make or dont make was already predetermined. so the reality of god, the devil and the bible. is that were living out a story already written and already written with an and. nothing we do means anything becaus we can only do what we were written do do. and if we dont, thats what was written.

Victoria Bowden

Because He also gave us Free Will!


Existence is strange, Alexandra. It wasn’t until after I became highly educated and spent a great deal of time with astrophysicists that I felt a rush of belief in Jesus, God again after a spiritual drought.

Our existence is in layers of time and space and evil is constantly trying to outrun all the snares that will capture it in God’s creation. But when we return to Jesus, it will all be revealed. The important thing to remember is that knowledge, human attained knowledge, is laughably humble in the grand scheme of things — trinkets of existence — it’s a good thing but just not that important and some knowledge is not worth the cost. Morality and wisdom is better. We die, anyway. We need to just be kind and wait it out. Try to live as we know we should.


It’s OK to question if God exists. For me, I do look at all the s--t happening and I’m reassured that God does exist and will set things right. Probably sooner than later.


God does exist Alexandra and remember that He gave us free will to do good or evil. This free will includes that likes of you and I trying to make a positive impact on people and their lives and to help them overcome doubts and challenges they may have. Evil will never outdo the good in the end. You’ve got to hold onto your faith and keep praying for change. A lot of bad things happen but they will pass. Hold onto God. If you ever want to chat or your’e feeling doubtful, contact me.


you’ve got to believe in a higher power since all these websites ie vigilantcitizen allude ot the emergence of Satanism and the now. these things are mentioned in the BIBLE! these signs are right before your eyes and you still don’t believe? if not, then all this is for naught.


If its in the Bible then its meant to happen


Accept Jesus into your life, look up the sinners prayer or go yo your local Church. God bless you

nothing is real here

Nope, the other side if where true life is. This is merely an experimental school.
Panic is great btw. Brandon is a fun guy. It is just a video.


Agreed, too much trash prancing around doing whatever the hell they want while the world keeps telling them that they are limitless.




Just shocking. What kind of crap is this putting in the minds of people? Everything seems to pass these days, as long as it is labelled “art”, even the portrayal of abuse of young children. This is next level sickness, not even subtle in the slightest. I am more than shocked, so the above comment sums up my reaction as well!

Sherri Goodwin



“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29


The existence of a music video like this is clear proof of complete societal breakdown… along with all the other stuff going on, of course: The fact nobody even notices or cares how wrong things are in general, thinking it’s ‘conspiracy theory’ to talk about a concept like the Illuminati when you see something like this, the encouraging – not just tolerance – of sexual deviations like the transgender agenda, the false flag attacks everywhere, celebrities and people openly walking around with satanic and/or plain evil symbols/themes on their clothing and people thinking it’s ‘cool’ or ‘edgy’ rather than getting offended, the subliminal messaging that people likewise just ignore.

Complete collapse can’t be far away. 2017 and beyond should prove interesting.

Happy new year?

David Jones

you guys do know this is just a video right XD, tho yes the meaning of the video is that its not like patd is actually trying to brainwash I know a lot who hate them even after hearing half of their songs.


@David Jones: so what do you suppose is the reason for this “just a video”? [Eye roll]

@Ky144: telling the truth is what brings grace. WTF comment brought more grace than your self-righteous finger shaking, which is more of a “corrupt communication” than cursing, in this case
Yes, I’m a Christian


REPORT THIS VIDEO TO YOUTUBE FOR CHILD ABUSE. Child Abuse “content that includes sexual, predatory, and abusive communication towards children”

D D d

The same yo.tu. that allows vloggers to insult, hurt, live dangerous, ridicule human tragedy, video that and make money for both parties via controlled direction towards young people?


And doesn’t allow you to block anybody on You Tube so they continue to insult you on other users’ channels. You can only block somebody from commentating on your own channel.


… and same YouTube that also makes sure to block/kill any videos showing the truth of what’s going on with various false excuses… taking down Illuminati proof videos due to ‘copyright reasons’ or because ‘video is private’ (lol?).


I cant log into youtube without being bombarded with conspiracy videos and flat earth videos and all this kind of stuff. I feel like Youtube is actually pushing it on me


These people need to be shamed on Twitter. Both the band and the director of this video.


Exactly! We need to get people talking about this cruel video!

D D d

Why not talk about the whole thing with changing societies. Lowering averages-for-the-benefit-of-all-mankind. This video is just one example. The subject is probably more, why do humans want to be treated this way. Why humans accept this kind of images flashing about in their lives. Why humans do not bother about young impressionable minds seeing such things. Why is it okay, if the only argument is ”it does not kill me instantly, so why the fuss”. Memory of Man has been under attack since science knew how to do it. It is part of the brain we all could use to think things trough.


Where do you get the idea Humans want to be treated this way?
i certainly didnt see that in the video.
the victims were all forced into it.

D D d

I was generalizing a little to try make a clearer statement. The wanting-part is : choosing to see, hear, undergo, everything those entertainment-corporations shove in them, for entertainment or even news/”information”. A lot of people have televison on as wallpaper while living their lives. They choose to undergo the randomness of what they are about to see hear and feel – without comprehending all flashing images.
Some of them I encourage to buy a caleidoscope instead, and then hum or sing while toying around. Or watch a tree grow.

D D d

I remember times when people watching television acted a little surprised about Janet’s nipple and then the media frenzying over deleting live-television for ever. This is a whole new level. Cannibalism, torture, rape. And that’s just kids teevee-videoclips. What’s for grown ups? Live wars on family channels, for decades already. And still, there seems to be no limit in Sight yet.

jaz h

you can watch your kids barbequed live, and decide the sauce!


How could we even be sure that the kid is not just “acting” in this video?


I didn’t even think of that…chilling.


That thought crossed my mind. Every time I see a movie or video like this I always wonder if they’re actually “acting” . Are the images that flash and certain phrases or words in the song triggers? Is the lead singer one of his actual handlers? When the video ended, did it ACTUALLY end? I question everything now.


The boy is just acting but as they act they get drawn into their role so they fail to distinguish between that and reality. Happens to adult actors as well especially when they play parts in period drama and think they are living in an alternate time.


Are you a moron. Yes it was acting. Have you ever watch the clip. Listen the bands music. You probable haven’t have you.


WHAT is it going to take for people to WAKE UP and put an effing END to this CRAP?!?! This is getting ridiculously out of hand and we need to act NOW!!! Everyone needs to REPORT that effing video, we need to make our voices heard NOW!!! They’re testing us, if we let this one slip, then they will make the next video even WORSE, and before we know it, they’ll be literally RAPING children in videos!! We need to act now, people!!! At least report the video on YouTube! You can also make your own video exposing this filth, or tweet about it, blog about it… Heck, just share this article with everyone you know!!

By the way, VC, why do you never talk about animal cruelty?? This video also contains serious animal abuse. Are animals not worthy of our voices?! Come on, if anything, they’re even more defense-less than those poor children, since they can’t speak for themselves. Please, have a heart! Include animals in your circle of compassion too, they’re totally innocent.


This horrifying, evil video, and many similar ones, are part of a long series of programming efforts. The Big Boys can’t grab everyone, thus, this is Monarch Mind Control inculcation for the masses. Fear is a major factor. Consider the power of human emotions and how they are being fed upon. The only way to rise above the fear is to make an effort to more honestly love family and neighbours. Protect children from this heresy against youth. We must study history: The victors, the vanquished, and the occult. Western civilisation has been under attack for generations. The principle medium, now is electronic. Consider how religion is being defamed, debased, and becoming irrelevant in the largely Christian communities. More atheism; less family unity; more infidelity; divorce; more emotionally troubled children on medications, reflecting adult pathology. Film, music, literature, print media, TV shows: all are being infused with the new order. Please study history and see connections. This phenomena is much more sophisticated than people seem to think it is. However, we always have the choice of hope; of healing and Love.


And also commit our lives to Jesus, accept his free gift of salvation, thats the only hope and end in sight. I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly:John 10:10


I am 24 years old, and I remember this band being very popular during the height of the “emo” music scene in I think 2005 or 2006… I associate them a lot with MySpace (LOL @ MySpace) because I feel like they were big on that site. I liked a lot of crappy music at that time (before I woke up), but I can sincerely say I never once liked these guys. There was something dark about them, and disturbing about their music and videos, and this is when their songs and videos were far more tame than this insane one. Now I see why I had that gut instinct about them, and I guess to fight for relevance they had to (and got to) really show their true colors. Disgusting. And if this is supposed to be “inspired” by Stranger Things, this finally can tell everyone that denies it all they need to know about that show.


Their name is stupid. Panic! At the Disco. Really? I’ve always hated precocious, obscure names. It’s not clever. It doesn’t explain what kind of music they produce. It’s lame. So, yeah, they’re the MySpace of the music world, trying to stay relevant with Satanism. Pathetic.


If you want an extra helping of nausea, I remember it always being stylized as P!ATD. It probably still is by their losers, er I mean, their “fans”.


Same genre as My Chemical Romance who were big in the late 00’s.


That should read “who were big 0’s in the 00’s”


The band’s name is a reference to The Smiths song, “Panic”. That song lists UK cities in which people lived on edge after a series of bombings that took place in the 80s, whilst radio and club DJs continued to play their inane, insipid and corporate pop music. Much like the music of “Panic At The Disco”, actually.

I can’t stand faux-“alternative” bands who mimic the real deal to the letter, then go on to make label-approved, pandering candypop with no bite. The gruesome and sick (yet unoriginal) imagery deployed here only underscores the total lack of identity and talent of this lame band, unfortunately.

Kev allah

The name reminds me of the shooting at the club in Orlando.

D D d

It reminded me of a few years ago, when fools started playing the macarena in nightclubs.


The fake shooting?

Kev allah

The gut instinct is a.sign that your awake. I had them about Beyonce in elementary school. I couldn’t stand her for no real reason. And then one day I’m in jail and my celly (a black kid) started talking to me about illuminati and all this s--t.


same thing with me and hunter s thompson. (if you are not sure what I mean Google hunter s thompson Franklin credit scandal)


How does one identify the gut feeling without being tricked into more evil? Since we’ve been mind controlled since we were little. Also, couldn’t this video just be them exposing all the evil in the industry and trying to warn us? If that makes sense


actuay panic at the disco is just one guy now


Their music used to be a lot different, I remember Pretty Odd being a decent album but that was back when the original members were still in the band. Brendon is the only one left, I can see why the others chose to break up after seeing this sorry excuse for music.


What kind of parent lets their child be in this type of filth? I think that’s the part that disturbs me the most, these show business parents that only care about dollar signs at the expense of their kids.


Money talks.


Maybe the kids are at the rebellious stage and the parents are either unaware or powerless to stop them. With younger kids it’s the same parents who let primary school age kids stay up way past midnight in the school holidays and try alcohol at drunken parties. Forgetting that kids find it takes a long time to catch up on lost sleep, that a lie in the next day will not compensate and that it’s more important for them to get adequate sleep than for an adult as they grow physically while they sleep. They then get into the habit of being nocturnal and not being able to sleep at night until late.

Little Light

It’s been said “All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men and women to do nothing”. If all we do is leave a comment, are we any further ahead? Everyone here can make a difference. You and I pay for these disturbing videos whenever we give our hard-earned money to Warner Music Group (wmg-dot-com), and it’s subsidiaries. Panic At The Disco is on Fuelled by Raman, a subsidiary of WMG. If we want to come against this evil, why not make a commitment to yourself to avoid – as much as possible – supporting WMG and their artists? Just google “WMG artists” to get familiar with their artist roster. Stop buying their products, and when possible – discourage others from doing so. It means personal sacrifice on your part. You’ll miss movies, music, and tv shows. But the knowledge you’re not rewarding evil men and women and bankrolling their wickedness is worth it, isn’t it? Many people continue to accept this kind of evil as “normal” simply because our silence is often mistaken for approval. Mention casually to people you’ve stopped supporting companies and artists who make light of torturing children, demeaning women, and every other kind… Read more »


The video itself is the Mk programming being done to the viewer…


It’s not entertainment. People only watch this for bravado and unless they are sick minded will watching something nicer than this in private for relaxation.


I’m SOOOOOO sick. >:))))


I watch the videos because I like their songs? They’re catchy, brendon has a good voice and plays a lot of instruments and he’s also a great guy and is very open minded supporting us in the LGBT community


Panic at the Disco anagrams to Pathetic sad icon. Yup.


The best way around this is to tell everyone you know and especially your kids to tune out. Starve these degenerate f-----s. We can’t stop new Babylon from happening but we can certainly not aid and fund it.


Uptempo happy music + Satanic Video = Cognitive Dissonance. Perfect if you want to put someone into a hypnotic state.


Never thought about it that way. Proof or something to back up that argument?


Rihanna’s Bloody video was also about torture and a blood sacrifice and in the video you see her smoking weed as always and then after she makes the blood sacrifice, she lays down full of blood on top of a case full of money. She has been promoting this abuse since the year started. And now the violence in music videos have been rising dramatically this last decade.


Why don’t you people that know of this things, comment on the videos in the comment section to warn people. Everyone goes through the comment section while and the video.


This is far beyond intertainment here!!! This is absolutely creepy and demonic! The luciferians do not hide themselves anymore and show in plain sight what they are used to do. This makes me sick


It’s the sort of thing you only watch out of curiosity and bravado and then to torture other people with.


After countless articles on this website, this one included, does anyone reading this stuff with open eyes, still has a single doubt left that the bible is only fictitious?


Sadly, satan has been successful at convincing people that he doesn’t exist. Sadly too many blind people that refuse to see. Great to see some people are opening their eyes, keep it up!!!


this one makes me really sad, maybe bc I have a son. effed up.


That pretty sick and disgusting although we are all familiar with the best kept secret in Hollywood: Pedophilia!
Is this morally corrupt lead singer trying to show that they changed their tactics used in ‘grooming’ the little boys with drugs and alcohol to this type of sh$t?


My assumption is that Corey Feldman was given his high-visibility slot on The Today Show to perform his hot new single as a form of reparation for keeping his mouth shut about the network. It can only be the only explanation, really. But it won’t work.


Even real pictures of lead singer screams of his instability and sadistic nature
