Credit: Sherwin LainezPanic! at the Disco's Death of a Bachelor is up for Best Rock Album at the 2017 Grammys. Frontman Brendon Urie tells Billboard that he's "elated" to be nominated, but he also feels a bit relieved to not have to compete with a certain duo from Columbus, Ohio.

"I'm glad I'm not up against Twenty One Pilots!" Urie says. "That momentous snowball that will never stop, it's amazing!"

Twenty One Pilots are nominated in five categories, including Record of the Year for "Stressed Out." Over in the Best Rock Album category, Panic! will be up against Blink-182's California, Cage the Elephant's Tell Me I'm Pretty, Weezer's Weezer (White Album) and Gojira's Magma.

"It's just be in such company like Blink-182, Cage the Elephant -- they're amazing artists," Urie says. "This is not a throwaway thing, this is so magnanimous to me. It's huge."

The 59th annual Grammy Awards will be held February 12.
