It's official – they're bigger than the Beatles. The cast of "Glee" has surpassed the Fab Four's record as the music group with the most songs on Billboard's Hot 100 music chart.
As of today, the McKinley High gang – who have covered the Beatles's "Hello Goodbye" and, most recently, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" – will have 75 titles on the Billboard chart since they made their debut on the hit Fox series last year. The Beatles, by comparison, had 71 titles on the Hot 100 list between 1964 and 1996.
According to Billboard, the cast's cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic" takes its place on the chart as the Hot 100's highest debut (No. 16), selling 109,000 downloads in its first week.
The "Glee" kids aren't the Hot 100's biggest record-holders, however. That honor goes to solo act Elvis Presley, who had 108 charted titles. Long live the King!
