They’re the hottest thing in pop music these days, and One Direction recently gave an interview to the “Today” show.

During the conversation, the “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” singers chatted about the fact that they’re the only British band to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts, something not even the Beatles and Rolling Stones were able to do.

The boys explained, “It’s insane. It’s mental. I think it’s strange having that comparison when you think those bands haven’t done that and they’re such huge icons. For us to be able to something that hasn’t been done before is obviously a massive achievement. So it’s amazing.”

One Direction also discussed who in the band has girlfriends, how their new album is coming, and the fact that they don’t mind the ‘boy band’ label.
