Pop the champagne, Twenty One Pilots fans: the duo has just earned its first career No. 1 single on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart.

“Stressed Out,” their hit single from Blurryfacereplaces Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” at the top of this week’s tally, reaching the summit in its 35th week on the chart. Meanwhile, “Stressed Out” zooms up six more spots on the Hot 100 chart, moving 19-13 after becoming the group’s first Top 20 hit last week.

Could “Stressed Out” start off 2016 by entering the Top 10 of the Hot 100 chart? Twenty One Pilots already celebrated a huge chart milestone this year by sending Blurryface to No. 1 of the Billboard 200 albums chart. As the single continues to do well, Adele’s “Hello” remains at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for the ninth straight week.
