Green Day is back at it again with another chart-topper! Billboard announced the pop-punk band's Revolution Radio album is their third to land at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The LP (released on Oct. 7) earned 95,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. 90,000 of those were traditional sales.

The band's last record to top the charts was 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, which followed their seminal 2004 politically-charged project—American Idiot. This week, Revolution Radio precedes Norah Jones’ Day Breaks, which landed at No. 2, and OneRepublic’s Oh My My at No. 3.

Green Day announced their 2017 arena tour last week, which kicks off on March 1 in Phoenix, Ariz. Fellow punk rockers Against Me! will join them as the opening act. Click here for the tour dates and watch a 2004 Fuse interview with the American Idiot–era band below:
