Top 10 Artists with the Most Hot 100 Hits
(The King of Rock and Roll's career predates the Hot 100's launch; Presley scaled numerous Hot 100 predecessor song charts beginning in 1956).
The "Glee" cast's record-shattering week contributes to an historic Hot 100. As previously reported, Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" blasts in at No. 1 to become the survey's 1,000th leading title.

with 'Born This Way'
Following the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning series' premiere May 19, 2009, the "Glee" ensemble arrived on the Hot 100 with its highest-charted title to-date (No. 4), a cover of Journey's 1981 rock classic "Don't Stop Believin'," the week of June 6, 2009.
The act has been able to fast-track its way to Hot 100 history thanks to 20th Century Fox and Columbia Records having released multiple songs digitally following each new "Glee" episode.
A remake of Katy Perry's recent Hot 100 No. 1 "Firework" represents the "Glee" cast's highest debuting title this week (No. 34). The song premiered on the Feb. 8 episode, "Silly Love Songs."
With nine titles currently on the list, the "Glee" cast charts its most songs in a single week, besting the eight cuts it placed on the Dec. 18, 2010, chart.
