As previously reported, Maroon 5 spends a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "One More Night," fending off PSY's "Gangnam Style," which remains bulleted at No. 2. Plus, Taylor Swift, Ke$ha and Rihanna storm the top 15 with new tracks. What other songs make moves on the Hot 100 and other singles charts?

-- Mumford & Sons: With five debuts joining "I Will Wait" (No. 57), the lead radio single from Babel, the Billboard 200's new No. 1, Mumford & Sons is the first band to chart as many as six concurrent Hot 100 titles since the Beatles more than 48 years ago. Debuting are the title cut (No. 60), "Lover's Eyes" (No. 85), "Whispers in the Dark" (No. 86), "Holland Road" (No. 92) and "Ghosts That We Knew" (No. 94).

No band (as opposed to acts considered groups, as the "Glee" cast has charted a high of nine titles in a week) had logged at least six concurrent Hot 100 hits since the Fab Four the week of Sept. 19, 1964. That frame featured "A Hard Day's Night" (No. 12), "And I Love Her" (No. 28), "Matchbox" (No. 32), "Slow Down" (No. 43), "If I Fell" (No. 55) and "Ringo's Theme (This Boy)" (No. 57).
