Born in the U.S.A.: Top 50 Stars of the 50 States

Mississippi: As Elvis Presley served as perhaps the most important figure in the popularization of early rock, his Billboard chart legacy is equally astounding. He's scored the most hits among soloists in the Hot 100's 54-year history and the most albums in the 56-year archives of the Billboard 200 albums chart. Simply, he's still the King of Rock & Roll.

MOA

For the right price, you or a loved one can rest in peace in the tomb of The King. Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien is selling Elvis Presley's original crypt to the highest bidder ( see the listing) as part of his "Music Icons" auction next month.

Bidding starts at $100,000.

The tomb is located inside the granite and marble mausoleum at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tenn.

Presley was interred there alongside his mother, Gladys, after he died Aug. 16, 1977. Two months later, they were reburied at his Graceland home. The original crypt has remained empty ever since.

Julien says the winning bid from the auction beginning June 23 will receive the crypt, opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service. Transportation and funeral home charges are not included.
