While Green Day has put out 12 studio albums, this is only their third time nabbing the top spot—2004's American Idiot and 2009's 21st Century Breakdown both hit No. 1 as well.

The band has a lot to celebrate, with the release of the single "Bang Bang," Green Day also sees their 21st top 10 hit on the Alternative Songs airplay chart.
