Panic! At the Disco (well, singer Brendon Urie who continues to use the former quartet's name) is back with a new album that has shot to No.1 on the Billboard charts, effectively bumping powerhouses Adele and David Bowie out of the top spots. 

Shocked? Urie was too -- but he had the best response to learning "Death of a Bachelor" was able to unseat true musical legends. 

"That's insane. I mean, to be in same sentence as anyone like that -- I'm not worthy," Urie told the Associated Press in an interview this week. "I was just floored!"

An appropriate and adorably humble response, but the news is exciting for Urie, who started Panic! At the Disco in 2004 with Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith and Jon Walker. Now as the lone member, Urie is able to boast something his former bandmates never could with his album's success. 

When the AP asked his thoughts about knocking Bowie's "Blackstar" out of the top spot, which incidentally was also the late rock star's first No. 1 album, Urie explained, "I'm conflicted about it. I'm happy, but man, just losing a legend, yeah, I mean, that's unreal but I'm glad that at least I had a chance to pop in there, get on people's radar. David Bowie had so many hits, too; it's not like I'm hurting his career by any means."
