It's the rockers' latest hit from their forthcoming album.

Panic! at the Disco darts to its fourth top 10 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart (dated Jan. 23) from the upcoming album Death of a Bachelor, due Friday (Jan. 15), as "Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time" soars in at No. 10.

The track, which samples the guitar riff from "Rock Lobster" by The B-52's, starts with 26,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music, slotting in at No. 5 on Rock Digital Songs and Alternative Digital Songs. It also drew 1.2 million U.S. streams in its first week.

"Good Time" follows "Hallelujah," which hit No. 3 on Hot Rock Songs, "Victorious" (No. 7) and "Emperor's New Clothes" (No. 5) as top 10s from the Brendon Urie-led act's fifth studio album, while another cut, "LA Devotee," reached No. 15.  In all, the band boasts four songs on Hot Rock Songs this week: at No. 10 ("Good Time"), No. 11 ("Clothes"), No. 16 ("Victorious") and No. 27 ("Devotee").

Meanwhile, "Victorious," the set's current radio single, bullets to No. 22 on the Alternative Songs airplay chart. "Hallelujah" hit No. 11 in August.

With Death of a Bachelor, the band is seeking its first chart-topper on the Billboard 200, following two No. 2 peaks. Previous album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! debuted and peaked at No. 2 in October 2013, after the group's sophomore effort, Pretty. Odd., started at the runner-up spot in April 2008.
