Glee Cast Breaks Beatles Record (Top Story)

Glee Cast Breaks Beatles Record was a top story in October. Here it is again as we recap 2010: The greatest band in music history has been topped by auto-tuned TV Gleeks. Gibson has the tale: With the unveiling of this week's Billboard Hot 100, the cast of Glee will be the group with the most entries on the chart in its 52-year history. With 71 singles in the Hot 100, The Beatles were the former record-holders.

But, with six new charted entries (five Britney Spears covers and a version of Paramore's "The Only Exception"), the Glee cast have upped their total to 75 Hot 100 appearances. The Beatles scored their entries between 1964 and 1996 (with the release of "Real Love" from Anthology 2), whereas the folks from Glee have achieved their sum in an impressive one year, four months and two weeks, according to Billboard.com.

Of course, The Beatles actually contributed to the Glee cast's success. Their cover of "Hello Goodbye" is one of their entries and they'll likely have another next week, with their take on "I Want to Hold Your Hand." But Glee isn't even close to catching The Beatles' tally of 34 Top 10 entries in the Hot 100. The cast of the Fox television can only claim one of those (with the #4 cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"). - more on this story
