Glee Cast, Elvis Presley

The King is dead. And he's ceded his throne to those pop princes and princesses of Glee.

The castmembers of the hit Fox series have just made music history—having already toppled the likes of The Beatles and Michael Jackson, the New Directions just passed Elvis Presley and now own the record of most songs ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The Glee crew's cover tunes have accounted for 113 entries on the Hot 100 since the show began releasing singles a year and a half ago (though it should be noted that fewer than one-fourth remained on the charts longer than a week). With the six tracks that debuted this week, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and company can now genuinely say they're bigger than Presley, whose record had stood at 108 songs.

Somebody better cue "Heartbreak Hotel," 'cause we're sure Elvis fans are seriously sad right about now.
