Panic! at the Brutal Ankle Injury


Say what you will about the emo kids and their whiny, whimpy brand of rock, but Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie demonstrated an inhumanly high tolerance for pain this weekend at show in Jacksonville, Florida. During the performance, Urie was flailing around onstage at he typically does, only this time he took a wrong step and completely destroyed his ankle. Check out the aftermath in the video above; it's brutal. Superheroes have been felled by less.

We've seen a similar injury take down the San Francisco Giants' Buster Posey for the remainder of the 2011 baseball season, but Urie barely missed a song before returning to the stage with a disgustingly swollen ankle. On top of that, he even played the rest of the show with a light limp before going backstage to get the injury in the cast it so desperately needed. Last week we praised Alice Cooper for only missing one show in 30 years, but this exercise in pain management is perhaps even more impressive.
