The Killers‘ “Mr. Brightside” has become the U.K.’s biggest single yet to reach No. 1 on the Official Charts.

In the 20 years since “Mr. Brightside” made its debut on the U.K. Official Singles Chart, it’s made an indelible mark on British pop culture and turned Las Vegas band The Killers into honorary Brits. A synth-laden anthem about infidelity, “Mr. Brightside” is the longest-running Top 100 hit in Official Chart history.

To mark 20 years since “Mr. Brightside” entered the chart and the anniversary of the band’s debut album Hot Fuss which turns 20 this summer, Official Charts presented The Killers’ co-founder Brandon Flowers with a brand-new Official Top 10 Award to crown the record’s iconic status as the biggest Top 10 hit of all time.

The Killers are set to celebrate the achievement with fans as they return to the U.K. and Ireland this summer with the Rebel Diamonds Tour, performing 16 arena shows including four nights at Manchester’s Co-Op Live and six nights at The O2 in London.

Official Charts confirmed that “Mr. Brightside” has overtaken Oasis‘s “Wonderwall” to become the U.K.’s most successful song of all time with combined U.K. sales and streams of 5.57 million.

Reacting to the news, The Killers told Official Charts, “Thank you so much to all our fans for making Mr. Brightside the third biggest song of all time in the UK, and the biggest ever not to have reached Number 1; not yet at least!”
