Music Monday: Dream Theater’s “Panic Attack”

There was a time that my husband and I were into the game Rock Band for the PlayStation, and through Rock Band, I discovered a great many songs and bands that I really enjoyed. The game was a gateway, of sorts, and one of the songs I really enjoyed hearing (I couldn’t play to save my life), was “Panic Attack” by Dream Theater.

Dream Theater is metal, but it’s also progressive rock. There’s a lot of complex instrumentation happening in this song, but what hooked me first and foremost were the vocals and the melody, which I wish we got more of. I’ve since explored more of the band’s music, and I’ve fallen for some of their later stuff, but “Panic Attack” will always be my first and favorite. The video below isn’t a video at all, so you can hit play and do other things on your computer, but go ahead and hit play, and tell me what you think!

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
