|Glee cast break Elvis' chart record|
2011-01-24 by Dave Donnelly STAFF | 100 Replies | 3050 Views
Barely three months after smashing the Beatles' record of 71 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100, the cast of Glee have toppled the King of Rock N' Roll, Elvis Presley, from his similarly enormous pedestal.
The Glee cast broke Presley's 50-year record of 20 top 40 hits in the shortest period of time. The cast reached the milestone in the space of just 57 weeks, over half a year sooner than Elvis' 88 weeks. The ensemble have achieved three top 10 singles in that period, selling over two million records.
I don't get it, they are singing other peoples song, how is that amazing?

god damn it
this is bullshit, they need to stop making treaties to disarm nuclear warheads and focus on obliterating this scourge
Music these days, amirite?
whats music? I thought this was just bigbusiness
And yet their show is still a load of bullshit teen drama wrapped up in a cutesy version of Americana high school with the only interesting parts being the segements when the gay character gets to do his own thing.
Seriously I've hated this show and yet all my friends in choir seem to think it's the greatest god damned thing ever. The only possibly worse show would have to be one based on marching band. *cringe*
Has anyone paid attention to the script of this show? It's disgusting.
why get mad about this? the songs are catchy and fun, and the show isn't half bad.

if you're in choir isn't this like a possible job opportunity for you?
Shame that this is where our society is at.
Show and/or its music is not bad enough to explain the floodgates of bad commenting about to burst open on this thread. Preliminary salutation to those coming here to gripe*: worst things have happened to the world than Glee doing well. So hush.
on one note its like who cares
but i would be lying if i said this didnt annoy me in the slightest
Jaymez umad bro? no one brought up politics. and no legitimate and coherent minded republican that is taken seriously believes obama is muslim, not that it even matters. now go scurry along and watch the daily show so you can have something to spew back.
Someone send out a hit on moms and pre-teens.
fuck you, glee.
ragin' hard up in here
Glee does well, sure, but beating fucking Elvis? What the hell? That's just insanity.
whats in a record? all it does is show the avg taste of society then.... to now. we are still obsessed with image its just today they don't even have to have talent.
Well hes still the King so they can fuck off.
Wow People these days are unbelievably fucking stupid.

you're doing something wrong if tv programme soundtracks are sexually abusing you without consent
This is my nightmare
jesus christ the glee cast is so ethnically diverse the only thing they are missing is an asian lesbian in an iron lung
Show is horrific. I can't believe I paid money for the first season (to be fair, I bought it for my ex...still...shit was like 35 bucks).
And this really isn't an achievement...really, they cracked the record with their covers of some of pop's most well known songs? Sorta silly to even make any sort of deal out of it.
If anything this shows how commercial the US is and how people latch on and suck things dry.
Why do people care so much?
Not usually huge on bashing pop culture when stuff like this happens, but this is just kinda depressing. In 50 years time people will be like 'wtf was Glee and why is it number 1 omg'.
fuck this shit
I think the show is pretty funny. Yes some of the songs are cringy and it hurts to see what is essentially a covers band beat legends (Although I don't like Elvis) but hopefully some of these kids are going to hear the Beatles and other great bands songs on the show and have the world of decent music opened up to them.
Most of them will just listen to whatever TV shoves down their throats but you're always going to have them.

holy fuck, reading this thread made me feel markedly dumber.
Fuck satellite, every time I see your username the song sattellites by p.o.d. always enters my conciousness, I have no control over this. Its like go to sputnikmusic, check lists, see your username then in my head its nothing but. SSSSSAAAAAAAATTTTTTEEEELLLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIITTTEEEEEE!!!
Fuck glee btw
Think he has a hard on for you bro.
The day, the muuuuusic, died.
So bye bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
And good 'ol boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing "this will be the day that I die"
O nothing to be sorry about sat, just an anomally that I've discovered about myself, I haven't listened to a p.o.d. song in years yet it always happens. Anyway I could give a fuck about elvis cuz he was a member of the COS (initated by sammy davis jrs penis)
It's because P.O.D. is the muhfuckin shiznit.
Don't fight it.
JWT, quieres que te encuentren con tu cabeza rompieda en 2?
You want to give satellite head while speaking in espanol in 2 mins? How romantic.
Yeah back when they first came out with the video for alive I thought they were margionally better than the crap mtv was spewing out at the time, I was a youngster then, not fully understanding the neverending spectrum of music. Thankfully those days are behind me brraahh
JWT you are a persisten prick aren't you? Nevertheless I have no sympathy for slimebuckets like you
This is indeed news so we are sort of obiged to post it... Unfortunately.
It's commercialism... who cares?
I'm no fan of Elvis but that is just unfortunate...
I hate when true legends like Elvis and the Beatles get toppled by a gimmick.
the dudes who write for Glee must only have "$"s in their eyes
I doubt it started that way but once the money comes rolling in it is human nature to kill the golden goose. I though it was a good show for the first season because the humor had some bite to it but that went away after it became popular.
how utterly depressing
So many bad users in this thread. But,
"on one note its like who cares
but i would be lying if i said this didnt annoy me in the slightest"
robertsona is correct.
I don't think the hate, for all those bitching about it, is attributed to the songs sucking. I actually think they do some of them pretty well. It is the fact that they cover already existing songs and get recognized for this. Like will go down in history. Codswallop imo.
Dude..... He's muslim, bro.
The show has some really funny writing but the music is a terrible auto-tuned mess. If they cooled it on the production the songs might actually be enjoyable. Some of these kids can really sing but they end up sounding like T-Pain.

Hearing this has made me sad
I feel like people love this show for no damn reason. they butcher every song they sing by over-vocalizing them, they are horrid actors, the writers are extremely stereotypical in how they pick the characters. it's almost as if they felt that this was a good representation of what america is: a highschool with a token black chick, token gay guy that everyone has learned to accept, the "badass" with another side to him, the hispanic person, the preppy, spoiled, white kid, etc. and they all get along just "fine". it's embarrassing to think that people enjoy this and even more embarrassing to know grownups enjoy this show that is directed towards teens and even that teens enjoy this show. it just goes to show how fucking dumb people have gotten, that they actually went out and paid money for something that should never have been on tv, dvd, or cd
who gives a shit^
my point exactly
yes they butcher songs but they definitely aren't horrid actors. Jane Lynch alone almost makes the show worth watching. I'm guessing most of you haven't even seen the show but just enjoy jumping on hate bandwagon. If they made the song production more tasteful the show would be pure quality.
i've watched it but i don't feel as if the writing for the show is all that spectacular. i feel like it's just a modern day soap opera with singing
and satellite, i meant who gives a shit if u read anything
This post gave me cancer.
This post made me angry enough to finally shoot that freaking squirrel outside.
Is America this dumb? Really?

"This is why I'm glad not to be American."
"Is America this dumb? Really?"
We gave you Elvis in the first place.
tv is social control guys
"We gave you Elvis in the first place."
Well, I'm from America... So yup. I don't have much country pride, to be honest lol.
idk if you people are too stupid to get it or what but Glee makes fun of itself and that's why it's so good. Of fucking course the characters are shallow and the songs are over vocalized and so on. That's the point.
I still can't tell if you're drunk or sober Alex. Grammar & spelling suggests sober, but liking Glee suggests you're still drunk. ;-)
