Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture
Panic! At The Disco's music video for 'The Ballad of Mona Lisa' from the upcoming album, Vices & Virtues - out March 29th
Let's see what they do next. One video doesn't make a band anything.
On the other hand, I don't consider them to be anymore steampunk than Rush, and Rush has been at it for years.
This discussion always springs to mind as well, so it may be helpful to you > http://www.dieselpunks.org/group/music/forum/topics/painless-parker...
I wouldn't call Panic! at the Disco a Steampunk band any more than I would call Madonna a Dieselpunk musician because of her Express Yourself video.
Both fit into a classification, in my opinion, of media in which the aesthetics is of a specific genre-punk though the music and the band are not. Add to that I suspect this was a one time video of this type for Panic. As opposed to real Steampunk bands such as Abney Park or Steam Powered Giraffes whose productions are consistently Steampunk.
Btw, I've written something for my blog on the very subject of music videos. I think you've just motivated me to move it up in line for posting. :)
