Panic! At The Disco and achieving milestones go together like the winter and a sweater. The band’s monolithic track ‘High Hopes’ has officially held the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Rock Songs Chart for 52 consecutive weeks.
‘High Hopes’ was first crowned number one back in November 2018, and was dethroned only briefly by another Panic! track, ‘Hey Look Ma, I Made It’, for a few weeks in 2019.
In total, Brendon Urie and co have perched comfortably at the top of the Hot Rock Songs Chart for a cool 62 weeks — marking Panic! At The Disco the only artist to be at number one in 2019. The band writes hits not tragedies.

In related news, ‘High Hopes’ recently featured in the premiere of the latest season of the UK’s Dancing On Ice. The song acted as a soundtrack for the show’s debut same-sex skating routine between professional ice-skater Matt Evers and Steps singer Ian H. Watkins.
Brendon Urie’s Highest Hopes Foundation shared a clip from the show on Twitter, “we can’t get enough,” they wrote.
