‘Glee’ Beats The Beatles’ Chart Run

Celebuzz / October 6, 2010

Here’s some news that’s bound to bug hardcore Beatles fans. But it will certainly give Gleeks something to sing about.

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and the rest of the Glee gang have surpassed the Beatles’ run in the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing the Fab Four’s 71 singles that they placed in the chart with a mind-boggling 75 tunes hitting the chart.

Of course, they didn’t do it all on their own—the Glee songbirds had an able assist from Britney Spears, thanks to the six songs from last week’s Britney-themed episode that have charted this week.

The bitterest—or sweetest, depending on your perspective—part of it all? John, Paul George and Ringo themselves helped Glee break their record, thanks to their 1967 tune “Hello Goodbye,” which the Glee cast covered and charted with:

The Glee gang still have some work to do if they want to capture the all-time record for singles in the Hot 100 chart, however; that honor still currently belongs to Elvis Presley, who landed 108 songs in the pop chart. But at the rate they’re going, Mark Salling and the crew will probably snatch that record up too before you can say, “One for the money, two for the show.”
