You know what they say: Fourth time's a charm. 

No, that's not the saying, but that's the case for Paramore, whose fourth album, Paramore, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, scoring the Tennessee rockers their first-ever No. 1 album.

Not only did Hayley Williams & Co. come in at the top spot on the charts, but they also kicked Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience out of the slot, knocking him down to No. 3. They can hold that over his head forever!

"This is one of those things that happens in the movies," Hayley told MTV News. "This is like when I watched the Temptations movie or That Thing You Do a million times as a kid... And wished every time that I could be doing that. I never thought it would be us."

Paramore came close to a No. 1 when their 2009 album, Brand New Eyes, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200.

Time to bust out the Ace of Spades, guys. Congrats!
