"Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades" is a 2004 single by the rock band Brand New from their second album Deja Entendu.

The full phrase from which this song takes its title is Sic transit gloria mundi (Latin: "Thus passes the glory of the world"). This phrase has its origins in Ancient Rome, is used during Papal Coronations, and came to the attention of Brand New via the 1998 film Rushmore.

The video raises parallels to two videos by the band Yellowcard, the strongest of which is the appearance of a white lamb on the door to the bar that Jesse Lacey enters. The symbol is also present on the briefcase that Ryan Key carries through the videos for "Ocean Avenue" and "Rough Landing, Holly." This is because the videos were directed by Marc Webb,[1] who used the lamb in his videos as a signature of sorts.

It was rumored that the silhouette figure during the last shot in the video is Geoff Rickly, lead singer of the band Thursday (who are from nearby New Jersey), although it is actually Justin Beck, guitarist for Glassjaw.

The 7" was pressed on light pink vinyl and features a demo version of the song "Jaws Theme Swimming." This demo song was recorded and mixed by Mike Sapone.
