Prior to "Amen," the group had yet to score a No. 1 in its over 12 years of appearing on the chart, reaching a No. 5 high with its first entry, and first of five top 10s, "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage," in 2006.

"High Hopes" concurrently rises 7-6 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, up 16 percent to 81.4 million in audience, according to Nielsen Music.

"High Hopes" spends a second week at No. 1 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-driven Hot Rock Songs chart, where it's Panic's first leader. The track becomes the band's first top five hit on Adult Pop Songs (6-5) and second top 10 on Pop Songs (12-9), after "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," which reached No. 2 in 2006.
