Lady GaGa's going to have to share this historic week on the Billboard charts with another group of little monsters.

As of this week, the cast of Glee has placed an astounding 113 songs on Billboard Hot 100 song chart. In only two and half years, the gaggle of misfit musical wonders has bested Elvis Presley's record of 108 for most charted songs by an act in the list's 52-years in circulation.

Unbelievable! The show continues to keep us in awe over what they are able to accomplish!

As for this week's charts, the show actually besting their own record by charting nine songs, including Lea Michele's rendition of Katy Perry's Firework, which ranks as the show's highest debuting title.

Just add this accolade to the pile! Gleeks be racking them in like whoa!

    why in the hell do you have to add gaga in a post about glee? its too much



  2. 2

    This just shows how terrible music has become.
    When Karaoke covers can top Elvis….



  3. 3

    Elvis has 108 billboard hot 100 hits as a real artist. Glee has 113 billboard hot 100 covers. It isn't the same accomplishment. Elvis is still the king.

    i think you cant brake records for songs that are not yours if thats the case we shouls say cover bands should be on the billboard chart.i love glee but they dont have orignal songs on their albums all thier songs come from other artist.



  6. 6

    Their songs are covers of other peoples songs…doesnt REALLY count



  7. 7

    um, dont be a fucking moron PErez. This show relased 5 songs A WEEK. Elvis and everyone else does 1 single at a time, so of course they r going to top them in no time. U know the history books will not reflect GLEE as the top artist to do this. they r singing covers of original music.

    I LOVE GLEE



  9. 9

    i dont even see how they can be comparable.. this is a show… meaning a lot of different people on these COBER songs… and he was one person doing it solely on his own on his ORIGINAL songs.. i think this is an awful comparison.

    Gosh how embarrassing. I hate Glee. It sucks ass.

    These are fast downloaded covers that fall off the chart FAST! It's just not the same.



  13. 13

    Most of Elvis' biggest songs came out long before the Hot 100 was a thing, so he's still got more…plus if a song isn't in the top 40, it's not a hit



  14. 14

    how can we be proud when its not even there own music



  15. 15

    So fucking what if Glee tops Elvis? New music comes along, deal with it.



  16. 16

    That's such bullshit! they're not even original songs! ugh



  17. 17

    Re: Elizabeth Hastings – lol it's not even new music



  18. 18

    for some reason this doesn't seem fair. what did they accomplish besides singing OTHER artist's billboard hits in front of a massive audience on national television? they shouldn't earn this kind of recognition because it really isn't the same as an artist having 113 of their OWN songs (not sung on television) on the billboard hot 100. just my opinion.



  19. 19

    You advertise this like they actually wrote the songs. They use the songs off of other artists. That does not count at all.

    I love glee, but I don't think it should count, it's not like they're actually an artist.



  21. 21

    Yeah, I'm sure in 50 years we'll all be talking about what an impact "Glee" had in music. No one can "sing" other people's songs like the cast of "Glee".



  22. 22

    These Glee people are just doing covers! Let them sing ORIGINAL SONGS FOR A CHANGE and let's see if these songs will make it to the top 100. BTW, do not compare these folks to Elvis Presley - He made it big singing his original songs - some of which are now classics.



  23. 23

    Are you really comparing a bunch of cover songs sung by a group of kids who no one will care about after glee is over to songs sung by a man who pioneered an entire genre of music? The songs the glee cast sing have probably already charted by the ORIGINAL artist. It would be completely different if these songs were written by the glee people. Ignorance isnt always biss, my friend.



  24. 24

    Can you stop imposing gaga!! you keep put it her in our faces! I started to hate her because of you!! and who told you Glee cats are little stupid monsters???



  25. 25

    wow - how…sad. Elvis is the King, and he was taken down by a bunch of over-hyped karoke singers who cover other people's music??? That's a sad day, my friends.
