Chicken Taquito

Album: Not Released On An Album (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first song that Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie ever wrote. He recalled to American Songwriter magazine: "I was 10 years old and I was really into System of a Down. And I wrote this song that sounded like System of a Down, but it was called 'Chicken Taquito.' No joke. I called it that. And literally, the words were just like, how much I love eating chicken taquitos. In a round about way. There was singing about mushrooms and green peppers and stuff too."
