Blurryface beat two Imagine Dragons albums and a Mumford & Sons record to the crown.

Well, it's official. They've done it. Twenty One Pilots have secured the ultimate bag. TØP's fourth album Blurryface has taken the top spot on Billboard's decade-end Top Rock Albums chart.

The record, released in 2015, spent a whopping 234 weeks on the chart in total, with 9 of those weeks spent sitting pretty in the number one spot.

Blurryface beat Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More (2), Imagine Dragons' Night Visions (3), Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack (4) and Imagine Dragons' Evolve which rounds out the top 5.

Per Billboard, the decade-end Hot Rock Songs and Top Rock Albums lists are "ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 on weekly charts earning the greatest value and weeks at lower positions earning the least."

While 'Stressed Out' was TØP's most successful song from Blurryface, the track didn't feature within the top 5 on Billboard's decade-end Hot Rock Songs list. Imagine Dragons took the top 3 spots, with Panic! At The Disco's 'High Hopes' and The Lumineer's 'Ho Hey' coming through in 4th and 5th position.

Still, 'Stressed Out' is currently ranked at number 28 in the most streamed songs on Spotify of all time. The video also has 1.8 BILLION views on YouTube. ('Ride' also features at number 83 on the most streamed songs list.)

Back in July, Chart Data also announced that Blurryface was the most-streamed album by a group of all time, with whopping 3.5 billion streams on Spotify.

What a time to be alive and also, what a time to be Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, huh?
