Twenty One Pilots have earned a new chart milestone thanks to “The Outside.”

The track, the current single off the duo’s new album, Scaled and Icy, has hit number one on the Billboard Alternative Airplay ranking, making it the 10th Twenty One Pilots tune to achieve that feat.

The “Stressed Out” outfit is now just the sixth act to rack up at least 10 Alternative Airplay leaders since the chart first began in 1988. The other five are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters and Cage the Elephant.

The Chili Peppers have the most number-ones, with 13.

Scaled and Icy also produced chart-toppers in “Shy Away” and “Saturday.” Twenty One Pilots will launch a U.S. tour in support of the record in August.
