Elvis bested by the cast of Glee on Billboard charts

The cast of Fox TV series “Glee” breaks an Elvis record for Billboard’s most charted songs by an act in the list’s 52-year history.

According to Billboard, with six debuts on the Hot 100 to be released tomorrow (Feb. 17) on Billboard.com, the “Glee” cast has placed 113 songs on the chart, besting Elvis Presley’s 108 chart entries logged between the survey’s inception in 1958 and 2003. (Note: The King of Rock and Roll’s career predates the Hot 100’s launch; Presley scaled numerous Hot 100 predecessor song charts beginning in 1956).

Following Glee’s premiere on May 19, 2009, the cast hit the Hot 100 with its highest-charted title to-date (No. 4), with Journey’s  “Don’t Stop Believin’,”.
